William Caverly can't seem to understand the unsettling feeling that has been nagging him for far too long. Memories of a baby sister are forever haunting his waking hours, and as he sleeps at night, he is repeatedly awakened by nightmares, confusing ones that he'd rather forget. His baby sister died. He saw her little body laid to rest beside their mother. But that doesn’t explain the dim remembrance he has of an event that happened not too long after that.

Charlotte Porter's days are full and busy as she diligently teaches her young art students at her mother's boarding school, and tries desperately to stay away from an annoying suitor. Painting has been her passion and dream ever since she could hold a brush, but lately she has begun to question her mission and calling in life. What is her real purpose? And why does she know so little about her father, who supposedly died before she was born?

William thinks he's discovered the hidden link that has kept him from his sister for over fifteen years. But then she's kid-napped, leaving William no choice except to find her and get her back. Once and for all.

The story is quite an adventurous and full of surprises. At first I was a bit confused at the story and had a hard time keeping track of who was related to who. Sometimes too many characters bog the story down and discourages readers to continue. I marched on because I know this author writes good books with faith scattered throughout the book. it was nice to see the characters praying and trusting God to help them during a decision or crisis.

William is a grand character with royalty  in his blood. He has disappeared so some people think ,but he is very much alive. The author gives us a full account of what happened to William and it opens the doors for intrigue and danger. I think it would be helpful to read  A Higher Ransom to understand the dynamics of this story. 

Charlotte is new to the series and is a welcome character to the story. She is a kind person . I loved the boarding house her and her mother start. Charlotte shines when she shares her artistic abilities with the children. She seems to be a little distracted lately and unsure if she is doing what God has called her to do. It's refreshing to see such a pure heart in a young  lady and her desire to honor God. 

The story does revolve around William looking for his long lost sister. Will he find out where she is? Rumors get back to him that his sister has been kidnapped and he must rescue her from danger.  The author elevates the story with characters who learn lessons, trust God and are an example to the youth. The author gives us an entertaining story that has all the makings of allowing God to guide their path and seek Him in everything they do. I loved the scriptures the author used that were placed at a perfect time in the story. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
