The author is the sister of Heidi Allen who was abducted from a convenience store in New Haven in 1994. “The book seeks to give hope to siblings of missing and kidnapped individuals," states Buske. "A hope that I didn’t have for many years after Heidi’s disappearance.” Buske shares her thoughts, fears, hopes and misunderstandings with others who have experienced pain, especially through tragedy.
In 1994, my only sister was abducted while working alone at a local convenience store. This isn't a book about the case or courts, it's a journey of faith in spite of tragedy. The journey starts with an early morning phone call then details of the emotions, grief, and confusion felt in those first moments while transitioning through the days, months, and years that follow.
