  • Review of Finding Claire by Pamela Humphrey

    Imagine waking up in the back of a van after being kidnapped with no idea who you are.  No memories.  No name.  Nothing. You have a photo with the name “Claire” on it, perhaps the only clue to who you are — your whole identity. You manage to escape, but you’re more lost than ever. […]
