About the Author
FOR AS LONG AS P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few years. Then, forty-some novels later, P.D. Workman finally decided to start publishing. Lots more are on the way! P.D. Workman is a devout wife and a mother of one, born and raised in Alberta, Canada. She is a homeschooler and an Executive Assistant. She has a passion for art and nature, creative cooking for special diets, and running. She loves to read, to listen to audio books, and to share books out loud with her family. She is a technology geek with a love for all kinds of gadgets and tools to make her writing and work easier and more fun. In person, she is far less well-spoken than on the written page and tends to be shy and reserved with all but those closest to her.

The story is balanced. The author doesn’t rush through the scenes and the suspense is preserved almost up to the end.
The characters are interesting enough and in continuous evolution. Both Carmenia and Neil, the FBI agent, grow and influence each other. I think the author does a very good job in fleshing out not only these two characters but also the secondary ones.
There are enough twists in the story to keep the reader’s curiosity high. There are a few things that are a little too hard to believe and that is why I couldn’t give the story five stars. However, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in mysteries, especially to teenagers and young adults.
Neil is an FBI agent who is overcoming a grave injury. He’s having trouble forgiving the person responsible for this injury. He learns a great deal from Carmenia about forgiveness.
Neil is desperately searching for Carmenia. Fearful for her safety, he hits the streets trying to find her before something dreadful happens. You have to admire his compassion and determination.
While on the streets, Carmenia learns a great deal about living among the homeless, and discovers just how poorly they are treated. It’s also a thought-provoking glimpse for the reader.
It takes a while to learn Cynthia’s secret. The author keeps us in suspense, which keeps us riveted to the story. I would recommend this book to boys and girls from upper grade school to high school.
