"You will marry Fidel." Her father's menacing tone was all too loud and clear. "Yesterday I gave him my word." Victoria's long black hair flew over her shoulder as the fifteen-year-old met her father's angry glare. His hands were hurting her arms, as he continued to grasp her tightly. Her once-beautiful, soft brown eyes were wild with fear and hate. With all of her heart she wanted to die rather than succumb to his demand. But, she had no choice-no choice at all Fidel and Victoria-in their remote Central American village-are bound by fear and traditions that have held their people captive for generations. At the words of mysterious outsiders, the tiniest spark of hope ignites within Victoria's heart. But, defying a deadly taboo, Fidel and Victoria are forced into exile-evading those who seek to destroy their family. Through the pages of this Christian fiction-though the year is 1972-you will step into another world and experience life through the eyes of people who have been suspended in time by isolation. You will be caught up in adventure and intrigue as two worlds finally collide. Nancy Mankins Hamm served as a missionary with NTM in Panama-until her late husband, Dave, and two colleagues, were kidnapped from their isolated village by Colombian terrorists. For eight-and-a-half years the wives waited, only to learn that their husbands had been martyred by their captors. Nancy wrote the book Hostage, the Incredible True Story of the Kidnapping of Three American Missionaries. The Outcasts is Nancy's first work of fiction. Nancy shares this message through her books: God is able; He hears our cries; and He provides a way. Currently, Nancy and her husband, Gary, live in Florida.
