Author and speaker, Elaine W. Miller, joined us April 3, 2013 for the release of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. We are all very blessed to call her not only friend but a part of our family. This morning as her blog arrived to my inbox I saw not only her smiling face but that of my sweet husband and me.
Thank you Elaine for being with us for this special day and then adding this sweet review of the book with eyes I hadn't even realized. Well, I know how wonderful my Ed is but didn't recognize it was woven throughout the book. Thank you!!
Elaine opened with, "Where's Heidi? is a love story. It's a story of a sister's love, a community's love, a parent's love, and a Savior's love. There's another love story tucked between the lines as well. The love of a husband for his wife...."

"I’d like to introduce you to Lisa Buske, who was able to use Concept to Contract to complete and publish her first book. Lisa, take it away: My only sister disappeared on Easter Sunday, April 3, 1994. To deal with my fears, anxieties, and frustrations, I wrote in journals for years, unconsciously drafting what I believe could have been a rough version of this book. But..."

It was an absolute pleasure to give away a copy of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey to kick off the Easter season and the final countdown to the book's release in April.
Our family enjoyed your comments and looked forward to checking back to the blog during the five days of the contest to read the new comments and even some of the conversations between each of you woven into your comments.
Marion shares her review with us...
"On Easter Sunday, April 3, 1994, Heidi Allen was abducted from her place of employment. In her book, WHERE'S HEIDI? author Lisa Buske shares her journey as a sister, beginning with disbelief, question why?, anger, hate, grief and pain. In an attempt to find her sister, Lisa contacted a psychic who claimed to know where Heidi was. However, she realized that it was all Satan's lie. Lisa finally found peace after a little boy introduced her to Jesus. WHERE'S HEIDI? is not only a sister's journey through tragedy, but a testimony of God's work in her heart and life. I would recommend this book, peppered with Scripture from God's Word, to anyone who has lost a loved one through tragedy."
A special thanks to Marion for sharing a review and snapshots of herself enjoying Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey.
"This is a highly anticipated book for me. I am blessed to be part of a writers’ group with the author, Lisa Buske and was treated to glimpses of the manuscript as this incredible book took shape. That being said, my relationship with the author does not automatically grant her a positive review! But the truth is, I do love this book as much as the author!..."

"I have the absolute pleasure of hosting Lisa today. She shares our story of how we met, but I have to add in one little piece. From the moment I published Finding Emma I have received hundreds of emails from families who have experienced similar loss through abduction. My heart breaks every time I read the stories and get to know the families. It has been an honor to read each and every email and to get to know some wonderful people – like Lisa. It is..."

Where's Heidi? A question that Lisa M. Buske and her family have been asking since April 3, 1994.
When her one and only sister, Heidi Allen, was kidnapped, Lisa lost more than just her sister. Her trust in her community, and her faith, disappeared as quickly as her best friend had. As Lisa searches alongside her family to find her sister, she learns that she is not alone in her emptiness, and ultimately ends up finding herself after a little boy invites her to bring God into her heart...

In her well-written and powerful book Where's Heidi, Lisa M. Buske takes us on her journey of healing after a phone call, announcing the abduction of her sister, rocked her happy place...."

By Michelle Saint-Germain Weidenbenner and Lisa M Buske
"A man enters a convenience store early Easter Sunday, April 3, 1994, in the small town of New Haven, NY. He wants to pay for his purchase, but no one is at the register to take his money. “Hello?” There’s no answer. He writes a note, leaves the money, and drives off.
Several other customers come into the store and search for the cashier. There isn’t one.
Lisa is asleep a few blocks away. The phone rings. She wakes from a dream and reaches for her cell. Heidi’s missing. "
