THIS SEQUEL IS TITLED BROKEN PROMISES, VICTIMS TWICE: CANDACE AND AMELIA'S STORY. Chapter 1 introduces  Candace and Amelia's Story beginning in Nova Scotia, Canada. It gives a glimpse into Candace' life holding down a day job at a Communications Company located in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia and a night job at a chain of convenience stores located in Dartmouth and Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, Canada. The chain of convenience stores is frequented by a very intimidating teenage gang and a pimp. The chapter alludes to a date Candace had with Mike, a military man and it highlights Candace' interactions with members of the teenage gang whom she treated as her adopted children. She learned first hand about some of the situations the teenagers had endured before and after running away from home. The chapter sets in motion Candace' journey which turns into a nightmare after a common law marriage to Mike and a legal change of identity under a Canadian government protection process known as NIVA (New Identities for Victims of Abuse) years later. Follow this audio sequel one chapter at a time and participate in the learning opportunities provided.
