Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.  Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years.

My Thoughts About The Book:  All I can say is Wow!  This book was one of those that once you began reading it life ceased to exist.  I did without sleep to finish this book.  It was an amazing story when I thought it was fiction.  When I found out that it was based on a real life event, I was speechless.  My daughter and SIL are missionaries in a third world country where teenage girls are taken as sex slaves every day.  I know things like this happen....sometimes it is just easier to put our heads in the sand.  Mallory Hammond was an amazing character in this book.  It was hard to believe that a young women would leave everything familiar to travel to a country so different from her home...but she did..... and then...nope I am not going to spoil it.  You have to buy this book in order to find out...."The rest of this story."  You won't regret it.  I promise.
