Easter has always been a time for the little kids to find that special egg, the one left by the Easter Bunny, hidden so as to make finding the egg half the reward. Every year the Ebner family hosts a citywide egg hunt for the kids where it is known that blacks, whites, greens, browns and little grays from Mars can hunt for these special eggs and win prizes.
Vallivue Falls is a small community of about 90,000, forty miles away from the larger cities and has a reputation for being rather quaint. Most of the residents have lived there, or their families have, all of their lives so everyone knows everyone. People grow up here, work here and leave only to go on vacations or visit other relatives. Why leave when we have all the stores, businesses and food that anyone would ever need or want right here, is a common sentiment.
Roberta (Bob) Ebner ventures out of the community after that special Easter egg hunt and finds a prize for everyone to remember, some more than others. Outsiders came to claim the prize that is not theirs. Some resorted to kidnapping members of the family.
What they didn't know is Vallivue Falls is a united idyllic community with love for all that give love. Oh what a price these kidnappers pay.
