For the next five years, Aubrey, Dotty, and the kidnapped childbound together by strange love and desperate needare trapped in a nomadic existence governed by their constant fear of discovery. Canny, the little girl, becomes Aubrey's entire existence. But Dotty wants out. She is tired of being saddled with this fearful little man.
