The Lost Soul, a new book by Diane R.J. Bibbins, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

At the start, there is light and beauty and wonder, but as evil, abuse, and hatred affect and infect, a destructive disease is born, carried, and possibly passed on, reaching out over decades to affect and infect the lives of others. The Lost Soul unfolds its secrets as a family struggles to discover the fate of their missing daughter. Who is the dead man in her home? Who is lying? And what has become of Tycie Spaulding and, more importantly, why?
