This is the novel I titled "Frozen in Time", inspired by my previous poem "FROZEN IN TIME" about a child that was abducted and the way the family dealt with the loss.

This novel is told in three parts. The first part is titled "Horror in the Poplars", the second is titled "Hidden in the Sands" and the third is titled "Ghosts of the Past".

This first part of Frozen in Time introduces the reader to narrator Magnolia Ventura, a teenage girl who lost her older brother Dominik when he was 10 in an abduction that occurred in 1982. She is devastated by the loss and obsessed with finding Dominik-and promises herself she'll find him "no matter what".

In her quest to find Dominik, Magnolia stumbles into various problems that both strengthen her resolve to find her brother and make her question whether Dominik is still alive.
