Novel In progress....Lucy speaks

Satch and his wife, Mary Jo, are an African-American couple who were born to be parents but are without hope of children. The discovery of a trafficked blond-haired, blue-eyed little girl, who for reasons unknown bonds with Satch, reignites their dream of a family. That is, if Satch’s own police department doesn’t separate them before the child is out of surgery or the ink is dry on the paperwork.
