An intriguing but frightening story of a child who is abducted and who lives a life of rejection at the hands of her kidnappers, until Kyle, her childhood friend, begins a search for her through a telepathic link. This is a story of tragedy and infallible friendship, a story of intrigue, and a story that will leave you feeling triumphant. Sprayberry gives us her usual 'feel good' ending

Hopeful Poignant Novel

In her novel, The Wrong One K.C. Sprayberry goes beyond newspaper headlines to the heart, soul and psyche of an abducted four-year old child named Lyssa. Without being overly graphic, the pages contain just enough detail to evoke vivid pictures of her kidnappers’ cruelty. As she matures, the innocent Lyssa maintains her pure spirit. Her voice echoes strength of character trumping repetitive unimaginable mistreatment. The reader can’t help but cry for Lyssa’s enduring pain,

The horror of two four-year-old children's experience remains with Kyle and Lyssa over the years.

Guilt about not helping her lin ...more
