“He stepped out of the car and made his way to the driver’s side. This was it. He’d kill her now, leave her body to rot. Oh God, oh God . . . She didn’t know how to pray. She did know that if God didn’t intervene, she was going to die.”

Robin Patchen, author of the Lyra Award-winning Finding Amanda.


All she wanted was peace.

Chef Amanda Johnson hopes publishing her memoir will bring justice to the man who abused her and heal the wounds that have festered too long. And she’s not about to let her estranged husband talk her out of it.

He’ll do anything to save his marriage and protect his wife.

Veteran soldier Mark Johnson believes the psychiatrist who abused his wife when she was a teen is more than just abusive—he’s a psychopath. But Amanda doesn’t trust Mark’s judgment and has no interest in his protection now that they’re separated.

A stranger came to her rescue.

When Alan Morass protects Amanda from the man from her past, Mark has a new battle to face. Now he must safeguard his wife both from the stranger who threatens their marriage and the psychopath who threatens her life.

About Robin Patchen (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Author)

Robin Patchen

Aside from her family and her Savior, Robin Patchen has two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Patchen to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Oklahoma, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.
