#BookReview: No Place to Hide by Opa Hysea Wise






Synopsis: Oblivious to the danger she is in, Smythe refuses FBI protection and thinks she can just move on with her life. As an unintentional witness to a murder, her life, and the lives of those close to her, are threatened. Many brushes with death create a sense of urgency in Smythe to move past her current circumstance, but this journey is not one that she would have not chosen but one that was chosen for her.

Smythe begins to ask the question: Why me? Why this? She struggles to understand not only herself and her own life but the lives of those around her. How are we all woven together in this tapestry called "life?" Smythe yearns to find answers in the midst of this chaos.

Smythe is a woman with vision in her eyes and fire in her soul, searching for meaning in what she saw and the consequences that test everything she thought she knew. Can she keep from unraveling or was her journey to find meaning in vain? She is torn between what heart truly yearns for the having to fight the unexpected battle that lays before her. Leaning in, she lingers in the mystery of the unknown.

My Review: This one was as good as I was hoping for.  I couldn't connect with the characters at all which made it hard to enjoy the story.  









About the Author

Opa Hysea Wise is an American author, born to mixed-race parents. She grew up across the United States and currently resides out West.

As an adult, Opa understood the deep need for connection that we as humans have. Like so many people of color, the longer she remained in the States, the more she came to experience a sense of “otherness.” Those experiences fueled her desire to discuss diversity as the woven fabric within the American tapestry.

She worked as a Training and Development specialist and manager in Government and Corporate organizations. Often tasked to develop and deliver diversity courses, Opa brought a sense of understanding, compassion, and a call to action to her audience with the firm knowledge that returning to the connection we all have as one body in this universe would be but one step to returning to love.
