Under the mantle of newly fallen snow on a Texas Ranch, in broad open daylight, the operatives kidnap Blue and kill her dog, Rinney.

While there Bella saw her daughter, and the grandchild she had never seen, as they rode by the base with a tribe of Nomads.
The Nomads had found Blue wandering, alone and lost in the desert. A midwife in the tribe had delivered Blue's baby and offered shelter and food which Blue gladly accepted as she had no memory of who she was or where she belonged. She wandered four years with the Nomads desperately trying to regain her memory, before Bella found her.
The reunion was made and mother and daughter and new grandson were united in the shifting sands of the desert. Bella was given Presidential favor and allowed to bring Blue and her grandson, Jibril, home to Texas and to Blue's husband, Bud. That's where we begin our next journey.
