In AFTERMATH, Anna Fulenweider, 24, survives fifty-three hours with a male assailant she cannot identify, in an unknown location. Survival is enough for her.
Normally an upbeat, even brazen news reporter, Anna is changed by her ordeal. Cowed, she sleeps at night with all the lights on, is repulsed by any physical contact, and succumbs to occasional shaking fits. She sees no reason to continue spewing her harrowing experience; therefore, she staunchly refuses to discuss it with family, friends, or even the psychiatrist provided by her employer newspaper.
Wesley Sims, a friend of both Anna and Joe Marsh, the engineer who developed the device credited with saving her life, urges Marsh to travel from Colorado to Oklahoma to help. Anna feels obligated to Marsh, whom she has met only in telephone interviews. She knows he used his ingenious tracking instrument to guide searchers, forcing the assailant to free her.
As an inventor, Marsh doesn’t believe in failure. Although he and Anna get off to a rocky start, Marsh persists…and persists…and persists, finally piercing her defenses, then widening the breach, until Anna is strong enough to confront her inner fears and even the man who created them.
