Meet the Characters of CAPTIVES

Three very different people--all of them on a journey where their lives intersect...

Blaise Timothy is a world-renowned cellist who has made her living traveling all over the United States and Europe, but her success in her professional life is in direct contrast to the failure in her love life. Moving from man to man, she is easily sucked into romantic relationships that are toxic and ill-fated. When her sister, Amy, goes missing, Blaise puts her life on hold to search for her younger sister. In the process, she learns more than she ever wanted to know about human trafficking as well as the darkness of her own heart.

Andrew Victor lives across the street from where Amy’s body is found and witnesses her covered body being carried out of the ravine. By profession he is an artist, but at thirty-one he has returned home from New York City without any money or direction. Andrew must live with his parents as he struggles to gain control over his life and an ever-increasing and dangerous addiction to pornography.

Asha Edgewater and her husband live in Washington, DC and work as missionaries. As a girl in Nepal, Asha was sold into sexual slavery—a bondage she didn’t escape until she was well into her twenties. Haunted by her past, Asha attempts to help others who have fallen victim to the enslavement of prostitution, and she feels a particular connection to Amy Timothy—the young girl whose life is snuffed out too soon. But for the grace of God that fate could have been hers…

Who are some of your favorite characters in literature?


  1. These sound like interesting characters. I'm one book away from reading yours, but if I get it done before Christmas, I'll post the review after the holidays because it seems like there's a drop in blog activity this past week. I will post a review on Amazon when I finish reading it. I just finished Kristin Hannah's "The Nightingale", highly recommended! For some reason lately WW2 books have caught my interest; I read a book before that, can't remember the title right off, but it was a true story of Jewish children that were hidden during WW2 in German occupied countries. Fascinating read. Halfway through the book I realized my dad was in Poland during the time of WW2 (he was born in Poland and ended up being a prisoner of war in a Poland war camp run by the Germans), so maybe that's why I'm interested in this genre right now (he died when I was 18 months old so I really didn't know him). Anyway, long story short, I'm looking forward to reading your book very soon :)


    1. Thanks, Betty. I'm looking forward to reading The Nightingale. It's on my list! I love WW2 stories too. My grandfather was a forward scout in the army and was shell shocked in England. I've always felt an affinity for the time period because of him.

  2. Sounds amazing. I can't wait to read it.
