About the Book

As Dean and Heidi Wilkes race from their home in Salamanca, New York, to a town outside of Syracuse where their only child is attending a Christian summer camp, all they know is that thirteen-year-old Sara is ill with a severe sore throat. They are concerned, but not panicked—until they see her. After the couple unsuccessfully attempts holistic methods of healing, the teen begs them to take her to a medical doctor so she can stay at camp and continue having fun. When they arrive at a hospital emergency room, Sara is given a new antibiotic that has reportedly had encouraging results. But soon after Sara takes the drug, she has a violent reaction that ends her young life. Two months later, the grieving parents meet with their attorney and subsequently embark on a challenging quest to battle the pharmaceutical industry and manipulative government watch dogs determined to stop their lawsuit and undermine the alternative health industry. But what no one knows is that there is no one more determined to instigate positive change than two grieving parents. In this riveting tale, a couple who loses their only child to a controversial prescription drug set out on on a complex quest to battle the pharmaceutical industry and government watch dogs.
