The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life.
She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years.
A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years.
Bryce Bishop doesn't know her past, he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate--and that the FBI director for the Chicago office made the introduction. The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her. But nothing else is working in his favor--she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forego a huge inheritance to keep her privacy. She's not giving him much of an opening to work with.
Charlotte wants to trust him. She needs to tell him what happened. Because a crime cops thought was solved, has only opened another chapter...

Henderson (Full Disclosure) delivers. Her formula—strong Christian characters in unusual professions, love interests with noteworthy personal histories and authentic trials of faith—has produced another winner. Rare coin dealer Bruce Bishop is bored with ordinary success; he has the Midas touch, but business has become routine. Watch out: his prayers bring him Charlotte Graham, a tough but enigmatic rival whose loyal friends John and Ellie have hand-picked him to guide toward an unimaginable legacy she cannot inherit except under conditions she believes herself too broken to meet. As Bryce and Charlotte's relationship tiptoes toward much more than business, the shocking story she has hidden for nineteen years unfolds against a backdrop of heinous crime, daring police work, admirable friendship, and nonstop action. Minute details of the worlds of coin dealership and philanthropic giving, plot twists galore, and a supporting cast whose capacity to fight evil and win is just this side of over-the-top make this stand-alone novel a rip-roaring good read. Old fans and new readers alike will be delighted. (Oct.)
