About the Book

John and Stella joyfully welcome the birth of twins, Baby Boy Smith and Baby Girl Smith. Then the unthinkable happens, Baby Girl Smith is taken and John and Stella are left to grieve for the child that is lost to them. In but an instant, John and Stella are thrust into the deception and heartbreak that is black market adoption.
Emmett Winslow purchases a baby girl for his self-indulgent wife and Jennifer Smith becomes Elizabeth Winslow. Mr. Smith meets Mr. Winslow through their respective business dealings and the two families form a friendship, but no one is prepared for the devastating consequences the truth brings when it is revealed.

The truth of her identity alters everything Elizabeth has thought of as her past. Hurt and confused she runs from the truth searching for an identity that will be hers alone. One day Elizabeth finds love and that love leads her to a place of hope and forgiveness where she can reclaim her past and face her future.
This fast-paced paranormal thriller will have you sitting on the edge of your seat as the darkness of Deception and the light of Hope battle for the souls of two fathers and for the daughter they love more than their own lives.
