Author C.C. Risingabout this book: Friendship. Trust. Courage. Suspense. Betrayal. "Long after you finish, their story will continue to haunt you." (M. Montgomery) … Author C.C. Rising serves a double-punch of tight plot and rich character development as she reveals the stories of two women who risk everything for people they trust. Introverted Caroline, a young college professor in Texas, puts her career and personal reputation on the line to save her student, Lydia, from a life sentence in a Middle Eastern prison. Outspoken Lydia is a passionate crusader for human rights. She gambles her life on a cause and a man she loves. Both women learn how elusive the difference between guilt and innocence can be.

C.C. Rising devoted 20 years to writing The Camel and the Scorpion, a novel inspired by actual events in the 1970s. The stories of Caroline and Lydia captivated C.C. She identified with these complicated women; their voices invaded her sleep. Caroline and Lydia defied traditional norms and expectations and stood up for what they believed in.
