My book opens with a phone call. The answering machine picks up and records my aunt’s voice as she utters words I’ll never forget, “Heidi is missing!” The beginning of the book focuses on the first minutes, hours, and days following that ominous phone call. A flashback to the last evening we spent together introduces the reader to the cheerful and optimistic eighteen year old before she is ripped from our lives. April 3, 2013 will mark the 19th anniversary of my sister’s kidnapping with the same three words still reigning true today…Heidi is missing.
It took me years to realize Heidi was forever gone. It took me years to realize I was not alone, and only through expressing my feelings would I begin to heal. where’s Heidi? The search begins is written to release the brother or sister trapped within themselves “going through the motions” of life from unneeded years of pain and loneliness.
This is my story...to be released tentatively on April 3rd, 2013
We pray you like the cover.
I took this picture on April 3rd, 2012. Only God could bloom roses on an April day in Upstate New York. I shared this with the store manager when I obtained permission from the property owner and he said, "My mom's bleeding heart bloomed this April too." God is good. A bleeding heart and a rose of hope for Heidi.
Does it bring about emotions, memories,
or a thought you would like to share?
