The Abandoned by Rysa Walker
- Premium Proofreading (done by Carla Pinilla and Lisa Gilliam)
Leah Pfeifer has spent two years in an isolated cabin in Colorado with her almost three-year-old daughter, Anna, trying to protect the girl both from her inherited psychic ability and from the government organization that would be happy to exploit it. Trouble seems to find them anyway, and a panicked phone call from Leah’s younger sister, Rowena, prompts Leah to leave in search of treatment for Anna and to rescue Rowena from the cycle of abuse that Leah herself narrowly escaped years ago. But when a twist of fate leaves Anna in her care, Rowena may have no choice but to return to the community that she was so desperate to escape.
