The Refuge

Length: 400 pages6 hours


Was it a place of safety
or deadly danger?

Nestled in the Colorado Rockies, the Wainscott Ranch
is a place of hope and promise for expectant mothers
from war-torn regions of the globe. Here, women with
nowhere to go, and no one to help them, find refuge.

Though raised in a life of privilege, Marisa Joubert,
too, has escaped a terrible fate and understands the fear
of being alone, penniless and frightened. Determined
to start over and support her young son alone, she
lands a position at Wainscott as a bookkeeper. Yet
almost immediately she senses that something there
is very wrong.

When one of the young women disappears, Marisa's
suspicions escalate. Especially about Jimmy, the janitor,
who may not be as innocent as he pretends to be. He is
a man who could be friend or enemy, a man who could
be searching for answers or desperately trying to cover
them up. Marisa knows he's somehow involved in the
mysterious events at Wainscott. But which side is he on?
