No Stranger Here

A novel by Lori Duffy Foster

Marilyn Dekker has no roots. Her parents moved constantly throughout her childhood, sometimes tearing her from bed in the middle of the night, and her husband’s work forced them to move with their own children every few years.

 So when the opportunity comes to settle permanently among the lush hills, fresh -water creeks and quiet ponds of Northern Pennsylvania, she readily agrees. But when two strangers on ATVS nearly kill her, Marilyn learns she is no stranger in these parts. With her arrival, she has unknowingly awakened dangerous family secrets that people will kill to protect. Marilyn has a choice: She can escape, like her parents did and raise her children on the run; or she can unravel the mystery of her parents’ past, risking her own life and lives of her husband and children to end the cycle of fear.
