Journey of a Thousand Steps is the conclusion of the trilogy. After several years with no new information about Jason, Ellen wants closure and vows to never give up her search. A documentary about a Super Cyclone that devastated islands, west of Fiji catches Ellen’s attention. This event reenergizes her and a possibility emerges, that they had not explored yet. What if large oil tankers (the size of football fields, were maneuvered to avoid the storm? Could they have been used to pick up survivors? Ellen forms a new theory and has renewed hope. Book three takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, as Ellen embarks on the journey to find her son, but does this without her husband’s knowledge. When he discovers she is not where she said she’d be, she dares him to find her. Ellen has a deadline, she must either find Jason -- or let him go. When she returns home with a storm survivor, this becomes the hardest journey the family will ever face. 

   My story revealed itself when my family experienced a life-altering event. Finding peace and closure has not been easy. In the last chapter of book three, I share our 10 Keys to recovery. They are what help us get through our day. No one can predict with any certainty what is about to take place because, when one door closes, another opens! God does not abandon you; he gives you only what he knows you can handle.

 Whispered Dreams, Book Two of A Whisper Mystery Trilogy, segues to another part of the world, where it takes the reader on a journey of discovery, that will not be revealed until the 3rd book. It picks up the action and the focus of the story shifts to Ellen’s son, Jason, who has grown into a young man, and is every bit as headstrong as his mother. Together, they expand their racing teams, outsmart the ‘good ole boys’ down at the race track, and endure confrontations from owners who like to play by their own rules.
  Meanwhile, the genuine CIA uncovers a plot to kill Ellen’s son, Jason, due to his heritage, from their Middle East cousins. Jason learns that the Monarchy of Obagur is threatened and he is compelled to become involved. Ellen starts to worry when Jason misses their usual time to connect. Days pass without word and when the unthinkable happens, she refuses to attend Jason’s Memorial Service, because she will not accept that he is presumed missing or dead. She knows that Jason may still be alive - but no one believes her. What has happened to him? She doesn’t believe that life is a bowl of cherries, and it’s certainly not a box of chocolates! Every one of us has to overcome obstacles. How will she get through this sad turn of events?
