A time-travel tale of abduction and redemption...

What happened to Sadie? This question has plagued 25-year-old Rebecca Danser for 19 years.

Imagine if at the age of six, you had ditched your four-year-old sister in the front yard to go play with your friend in the house… and then you never saw her again.

In the intervening years, now living in Silicon Valley, Rebecca has made a mess of her life. She hates her job, has no career prospects, and has never had a successful relationship unless you count sex with a relative stranger during her time jumps into the past.

“Mystery fans will love this plot device, which takes a straightforward whodunit to an otherworldly level." -The BookLife Prize

But soon she realizes this strange ability she recently gained, allowing her to cast her consciousness back into a younger version of herself, can be used to discover who took Sadie that fateful day.

Marjory Kaptanoglu's "prose is crisp and purposeful, charged with feeling, and always attuned to what will engage readers in each moment." -The BookLife Prize

She must travel back in time to witness the event with her 6-year-old eyes.

What she learns leads her into a remote forest in the Sierra Mountains… where the monster responsible for the destruction of her family lies in wait for her.

Choose Before She Was Taken—book two of the BEFORE Series—to begin your travels into the deepest, darkest recesses of time.
