Introducing Captives by Megan Whitson Lee

When I saw that Megan Whitson Lee had a new book out, I knew I had to help out. I loved Megan's book Song from the Ashes, and I knew from the cover I'd love this one. Here's the beautiful cover for Captives:




And here's all you need to know about it to know you need to head to Amazon and buy your copy!


Blurb:

When seventeen-year-old Amy Timothy disappears from a rural Virginia truck stop, world-renowned cellist Blaise Timothy puts her life on hold to join the search for her sister. While conducting her own investigation into Amy’s disappearance, Blaise seeks solace in addictive and destructive relationships. 
Three years later, the search for Amy becomes a homicide investigation and catches the attention of national media and sex trafficking activists. Less than a mile from where Amy’s body is recovered, Andrew Victor attempts to manage a failing career in art, an addiction to pornography, and a family secret that links him to the murder investigation. In Washington, DC, Asha Edgewater knows first-hand the horrors of sex slavery and lends support to the Timothy family even as she comes to terms with her own past. As all three lives intersect in their search for redemption and healing, they find it is only possible through God’s grace.

  5. This sounds like an amazing book. I love having a character who's a cellist. There aren't enough books that promote music as a career.

  6. I agree, Jacqui. I love to write about artists (and especially musicians since I love music and studied voice in college).
