Hostage of Lies by Dr. Maxine E. Thompson

Hostage of Lies by Dr. Maxine E. Thompson

How important is the past? For 40-year-old Titi, who’s always felt like an outsider in her own family, it’s vital.Titi has returned home for her father’s seventy-fifth birthday celebration, but she’s not there with well wishes for the man who sent her away many years ago. She’s come looking for answers—about the child she was forced to give up for adoption and about her family’s secretive history.

Her mother does not want her snooping into family affairs that are better left in the past, but Titi is determined. She knows there must be some truth to the strange stories her beloved great-grandmother told her as a child, and now she’s not leaving until she learns the truth—even if it destroys her family in the process.

Hostage of Lies is in stores now. It can also be purchased from Kensington Books or any of the online retailers.
