“A riveting tale of an innocent family on the run.”
Hiding in Sunshine
By John Stuart and Caitlin Stuart
This could happen to anyone.
Peek Inside the Book (PDF)Living lives of quiet affluence in a historic suburban Boston town, Gavin and Lisa Brinkley had no idea how quickly and decisively their lives, and those of their two young daughters, could be upended. A series of events—a mysterious break-in at their home, some menacing tailgating on the highway from Boston, a startling visit from an F.B.I. agent warning of an imminent kidnapping attempt—leads to the family’s abrupt uprooting from its comfortable existence into a terrifying new existence on the run, under new identities.
This taut thriller by a father-daughter team follows the eleven-year odyssey of an American family on the run, hiding through the mountain states of the American west, where survival skills and living off the grid are paramount, but so are friendship and cooperation and resilience.
A compelling story of suspense and treachery, HIDING IN SUNSHINE is also a celebration of a family’s abiding love and courage—and a young girl’s faith in the triumph of the truth.
