Michael and Christy attended prom, graduated high school, and Michael leads the USATF tryouts. With
on the horizon, his future looks bright, and he believes life has returned to
normal after Christy’s rescue. He couldn’t be more wrong. Oxford University
Christy has been free from a life of slavery for more than a year and has made remarkable progress due in no small part to the love he found with Michael. But the recent prosecution of a past abuser has shattered the life he so painstakingly built out of nothing but a mountain of horror. He now faces the daunting task of building a new life—yet again.
Twelve-year-old Thimi has been missing since Christy left
and, unbeknownst to everyone, has hidden out in a vacant mansion in Glyfada.
Learning of Christy’s survival is the only thing that brings him out of hiding.
People, open spaces, even the most common of sounds frighten him beyond reason.
A mere ghost of a boy, Thimi arrives in the US with no knowledge of the outside
world—the only constant in his life a purple marble.
