A Life Unbroken
K.M. Hewitt, author
Hailed as a contemporary tribute to The Count of Monte Cristo, A Life Unbroken is an intense, seemingly ripped-from-the-headlines tale that sizzles from page one. A Life Unbroken features protagonist Dr. Alexandra McKay. At 26 years old, Alex McKay has it all: a successful career as a plant scientist, a happy, comfortable home she shares with Abby, her beloved canine companion, and a burgeoning romance with Ryan Stinson. Alex’s life is coming together in a marvelous and joyful way….until the split second moment that changes everything. When she becomes the sole witness to a horrifying accident at a secret biological weapons lab, Alex’s world is upended. This accident could have far-reaching, deadly, devastating consequences— and not just for Alex: millions of other innocent lives could be at risk. With so much at stake, it’s no wonder that there is intense pressure to keep this deadly secret under wraps at any cost. \tMysteriously and swiftly placed on assignment in South America, Alex vanishes—until six years later when she resurfaces in the US with a new name, a new face, a new identity, and an old score to settle. Will Alex finally get the chance to right this terrible wrong? Her only crime was having the egregious misfortune of being at the wrong place at the wrong time—and that cost her almost everything: her life, her freedom, and nearly her sanity. \tBut now, Alex has an earth-shattering story to tell. She just might not live long enough to tell it.
