Shadow Play

by D A Lampi

ShadowPsychiatrist Grace Rendeau struggles to make sense of her husband's untimely death. Left a widow with two children, Grace forges a new life for her family, abandoning her private practice and moving to Minnesota to take on a prestigious position at the Rochester Forensic Center for the Criminally Insane.

In striving to heal her patients, she finds healing, a new strength, and a sense of possibilities. Among the possibilities is a budding romance with Alex Sawyer, a divorced doctor engaged in humanitarian work. Grace accompanies Alex on a medical mission to Indonesia and they return committed to a new life together. But their joy is short lived.

Grace returns home not to her children, but to an empty house and a chilling kidnapper's note. Enemies known and unknown haunt Grace's every waking hour. Grace's story illuminates the hopes and fears of every wife or husband, mother or father, woman or man, caught in life's turmoil and striving to overcome it.
