Keith enjoys sweet reunions with family and students when the Mexico field trip finally becomes a reality. Parents lash out against the Bradleys with bitter accusations of fracturing their families and teaching their children to hate them. Hiding in plain sight can only go so far when a cartel drug lord, an educational authority, and someone who insists on documenting her own truth prepare for a final showdown. Cherub Bradley's long-anticipated arrival sparks tender and terrifying consequences. Joshua Bradley's call to face the lions leads to fiery confrontations no one expected. Keith determines that it's time for them to stop running, and to make their enemies move instead. Easier said than done, if one distraught parent's confession is true. The full force of the US and Mexican governments might rise up in answer to the cries of a cult putting children in danger.
Findley loves to write and draw, and has been known to do both tucked in the bend of an old pine tree. Cat and dog lover, former master of the universe of summer hikes, mountain stream swimming, and unorthodox campouts, she has traveled internationally and around the lower 48 multiple times. Sneak a peek at snippets from her real life in The Great Thirst serial, from the tiny school she attended in the foothills of the Catskills, to the college teacher who asked for student help to find the contact lost in her own eye, to a certain trucker couple who come to the rescue when help is desperately needed. She is the wife of a crazy smart man, mother of three kind of grownups, and currently rides shotgun in the US and Canada in a tractor-trailer.
