She has spent her young life as a serial foster child moving from one home to another.  Roxi Gold dreams of belonging to a loving family permanently, but each new home makes her feel this will never occur though she tries too hard to belong.

Currently, Roxi travels the country with her foster parents stealing rare books in order to remain in her current home; if she refuses she will be kicked to the street though she is disturbed by her criminal activity.  Police officer Abby Dawson feels worn out by a job she once cherished as her work was used against her in the custody fight with her ex. She wishes she could turn to her dad for solace, but they are estranged.  Roxi and Abby meet when blood flows over a first edition of the Great Gatsby.

Roxi makes for a strong tale as her odyssey will reach inside to the souls of the readers.  She makes the tale seem real as her desperate need to belong leads her to criminal activity to keep her guardian pleased with her.  Bound by Guilt is a terrific Christian contemporary due to the protagonists and a powerful support cast.
