ANGELS AND ECHOES - a novel by Dori Hartley

New Yorker, Olivia Lang is diagnosed with breast cancer and must undergo major surgery and aggressive chemotherapy. Her post-operative scars are so abhorrent to her husband, that he shuns her emotionally and physically, eventually divorcing her. Lonely and dejected, she looks for companionship in an online role-playing group called Angels and Echoes, where she falls in love with Evan McQuayle, an autistic man who lives in Kentucky. Plagued by memories of childhood molestation, he confesses to the group that at 13, his own mother raped him, gave birth to his only child and sold her to a ring of pedophilic pornographers.

Also in the online group is 21-yr old Kitty Valentine, a wheelchair-bound, NYC tattoo artist. As a baby, she was discovered by her adoptive parents in a dumpster, where she’d been left to die. With no real knowledge of her infancy, her only memories include a vicious woman, a video camera and a kind boy.

When Olivia hires Kitty to tattoo over her scar, the question arises: Could there be a connection between Evan and the young woman in the wheelchair? Olivia’s curiosity turns into an all-out search-and-rescue mission, where the discovery of several videotapes leads them to a broken-down trailer home in the Kentucky hills -- and a possible confrontation with a psychopathic child molester.
