Former African American schoolteacher and amateur sleuth Dr. Inez Buchanan is surprised by a strange visit from her neighbor Dolly David. Dolly needs Inez’s help. Years ago, Dolly’s granddaughter Kadija Campbell went missing from her college campus in Fort Collins, Colorado. The police believed Kadija was dead, but Dolly has always held out hope. A mysterious phone call reinforces her belief that Kadija is alive and hints that she is being held in Afghanistan. Although Inez’s heart goes out to the distraught grandmother, she can see from the girl´s photo that the granddaughter is a woman of color, and she doesn’t believe she can do anything to help with the case. Then, Dolly dies in a mysterious accident and leaves Inez as the executor of her estate. Dolly was worth billions of dollars, and Inez knows her last wish would be for Inez to find Kadija at any cost. Inez’s friend and FBI contact Trace Mitchell believes Kadija may be working as a spy in a terrorist cell. In the adventure that follows, Inez connects Kadija’s disappearance with strange happenings in the Middle East. Powerful people know more about the young woman than they are letting on, but they’ll find Inez a force with which to be reckoned! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gloria Neal.

Three months ago, her 22-year-old son, Cully, died in an avalanche. Though single, Sarah is hardly alone in her grief.

Kaui Hart Hemmings highlights the subtle poignancies of grief and relationships in this stunning look at people faced with impossible choices in the wake of a tragedy.
