Never Far Away (Used Book) - Michael Koryta
Once a wife, mother, and witness to a gruesome crime, Nina Morgan has been in hiding for a decade as Leah Trenton. She left behind her Midwestern roots to move to the northernmost tip of Maine. She also left behind a family. Living a fairly isolated life along the banks of the Allagash River, she is determined to focus on the present, on her reclaimed future, but the demons of her past are relentlessly chipping away at Leah's protected hideaway.
Then, in the wake of their father's untimely death, Leah's children call and she rushes to them in the guise of 'Aunt Leah'. They embark on a cross country journey but before they reach their destination, danger finds them and it is Leah who must come out of her seclusion to search for and protect her children.
Told with the deft plotting and enthralling storytelling of a genre master, these two captivating chase narratives will converge along the rugged Allagash River, in the wilds of Maine, where the wills, morals, and ingenuity of a broken family will be tested against all odds.
