As the truth emerges, Gemma discovers—the hard way—that invisibility comes with its own set of problems.
My name is Gemma Keyes. Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable—so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven’t exactly noticed that I’ve disappeared. Vanished. Oh, it’s much more complicated than it sounds. And let me tell you, the adjustment is difficult.
I should tell you about Dr. Daniel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I’ll be candid with you: He’s supposed to be dead. Well, he’s not. (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial “six feet under,” he’s subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque.
In my shadow you sleep, hungry for my soul.
In my heart you live, nurtured and at peace.
In my life you belong, always.

Open mindedness is a real key point for progressing from the limitations of prison now as closed minds may be a major cause of the resistance that exists. Consider any argument that you ever had and remember that accommodation usually follows a gesture of respect.
My perspective has been difficult to achieve but there seems to be hope in understanding and this book invites ideas to motivate the sharing of ideas that can be good for all.
Like our country, the prison communities seem to need an infusion of objectivity. If I was not hopeful, I would not be writing all these books.
