When Grace was born she was kissed . . .
. . . by her Guardian Angel
With that kiss, she received an unusual gift: empathy so intense it aches, aggravated by a spot-on recognition of evil. Reaching the age of fourteen, haunted and followed by shadows all her life, Grace instinctively knows that eleven-year-old Noah Dunne has been kidnapped and is facing certain death.
The perpetrator, Jason Bowen, masquerades as an upstanding citizen, boy scout leader, and Sunday School teacher. And everyone is utterly duped – except Grace.
She tries to get anyone to listen to her – police, parents, priest.
When she is cast in her school’s production of The Miracle Worker, she connects strongly with the character she portrays: Helen Keller. And soon, Grace discovers that she too has a voice and learns how to use it. But with her newfound strength and power, when Grace decides to follow Bowen to rescue Noah, will she be able to face the insidious evil that awaits her?
