An Uncertain Refuge...,
This review is from: An Uncertain Refuge (Paperback)
While working at a woman's shelter in Arkansas, Kate Dalton is faced with the situation of saving the life of a woman from the shelter. She helps her but during the fight the ex-husband dies. When the owners of the shelter want to make a movie, Kate decides she can't do that so she leaves her job. Having nowhere to go, she decides to go to Oklahoma to visit Amanda - the lady whose life she had saved at the shelter. There she finds that Amanda is just barely hanging on - both physically and mentally - while hiding out from her ex-husband's family. She is also trying to take care of her rambuctious 9 year old son. Amanda convinces Kate to take her son, Way-Ray, for 2 weeks so she can re-coup. During that time, Kate becomes very attached to Way-Ray. But then Amanda disappears and Kate becomes Way-Ray's guardian. After sightseeing across the country and because of circumstances beyond their control, they have to stay for a while in a small town in Oregon. There she finds friends who become the family she doesn't have. These friends help Kate hide Way-Ray from his father's family as they are trying to locate and kidnap him - and they don't care who they hurt, or even kill, in the process.
Because the story line flowed so well and the characters were so true to life, I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. Definitely a book I would recommend to everyone!
