A shovel hitting dirt—an unmistakable sound that broke the tranquility of the woods bordering her Montana home. When Sandra Lewis went to investigate, she saw them—three young men burying a body in a shallow grave. She knew she had to tell someone. She was likely the only witness, the sole link to justice for the victim. But there was just one problem. Sandra was physically unable to speak to anyone, about almost anything.
For her entire life, she had been trapped by a brain that prevented others from knowing that, on the inside, she was intelligent and capable of making an impact on the world around her. But now, she was forced to make a choice: stay hidden and controlled by anxiety, self-doubt, and silence . . . or find a way to break free. Sandra knew that her decision could risk her life and endanger the only family she had left.
