Battle for Stephanie
About the Book
Stephanie Wallis was living a blissful life, from her perspective. She had two loving parents, was a good student and enjoyed school, and, despite her parents struggling financially, had much of what she needed and wanted. The family had changed locations often, but she was able to adjust well each time. But just when things seemed to be settling down, everything changed and turned her world upside down, altering her life in ways she could not imagine. Her mother, Cynthia, suddenly packed her up and left her father, Nathan. Relocating to another state, Stephanie had barely started attendance at a new school when she was abducted and whisked away to yet another state by a man on a misguided mission. With the help of his wilderness guide brother, Bryan; FBI agent Susan Blastmore; sheriff’s deputy Dawn Barnes; and other law enforcement personnel, Nathan goes on a search in the Idaho mountains to find and retrieve his daughter. Their efforts are complicated by a controlling in-law and a band of mercenaries.
