Eventually she escaped and, after living for eighteen months on cast-offs at the local mall, was put into the child-care system --- nowadays she works as a production editor for the local public TV station, and is one of the world's good people. One evening she returns home to find a detective waiting for her who asks if she can help with a young woman who, like her many years before, has been abducted and traumatized.
