Orphaned and severely deformed, from her earliest moments Sarah Sims has been kept hidden away in a secret CIA facility--until an unexpected discovery gives her an opportunity to make a life for herself at last.Now Sarah has an ally, a long-lost aunt who has discovered her true identity. Aided by this brave psychologist, twenty-year-old Sarah must find the courage to confront the forces that have confined her for so long. And the strength to be reborn into a world she has never known.
Compelling characterization is the driving force behind this enthralling story of hope. Born without facial features due to Treacher Collins syndrome, declared legally dead and signed over to a secret CIA program as an infant, 20-year-old Sarah Sims has spent her entire life hidden from the mainstream world. Her only distractions are her work as a computer espionage expert and a steady diet of classic movies until her aunt, Renee, discovers Sarah is still alive, providing her first chance to explore a life outside her physical and emotional seclusion. Hunt (The Elevator) fuels the completely engrossing story with dual present-tense narration by the two women. Readers are drawn into their lives, sharing their joy and fear as they approach a fulfilling and surprising climax. A touch of suspense adds to the powerful themes of second chances and new beginnings. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
