A pitch-perfect, heartfelt, and enthralling story of survival, coming-of-age and redemption. 


by Joyce Yarrow

Genre: Urban Fiction 


GOLD MEDAL WINNER - Cipa Evvy Award for Women's Fiction

When you trade the straight and narrow for the crooked pathways of crime, it's likely to become a permanent arrangement. Unless, like Sandie Donovan, you're a born grifter, determined to use your knack for deception and crime to restart your life and achieve success as an actor.

A pitch-perfect, heartfelt, and enthralling story of survival, coming-of-age and redemption. Sandstorm is a suspenseful, pacy read about a compelling character whose adventures and misadventures are dramatic and exciting.
