Beneath the Surface

They’re on the run. Grace doesn’t know why but her father insists it’s the only way.

She’s clinging to her mantra: ‘Finish high school. Turn eighteen. Freedom.

She’s almost there but now she’s wondering if she can survive that long. Her father has never been father of the year.

Since landing in Sydney, her recurring nightmares are coming hard and fast. A red suitcase. Thorns. A phone number she can’t remember. And blood. Way too much blood.

What does it all mean?

Her friendship with Lowell may be her lifeline. But there is risk in trusting someone. Life-altering risks.

If Grace only knew who she really was, and what the nightmares were trying to tell her.


From the author of ‘Camino Wandering’ comes a gripping suspense which will have you on the edge of your seat, cheering on this young woman as she discovers her truth.
