From the acclaimed author of The Edge of the Sky and Wildwood comes a spellbinding tale of domestic drama in the powerful tradition of Jacqueline Mitchard's The Deep End of the Ocean that will capture your heart--and your imagination--from the very first page.
Dana Cabot cannot remember the kind of person she was before May 29th, the day she became angry at God, at her workaholic attorney husband, and herself. The day her seven-year-old daughter, Bailey, disappeared. As the months wear on without a trace of her adorable but troubled child, Dana can't help blaming her husband's controversial defense of an accused abuser for playing a role in the abduction--and it shows in the strain on their marriage. But then a shocking event offers a clue to what really happened to Bailey--and Dana's unwitting part in it. Haunted by the unthinkable consequences of revealing everything she knows, Dana must decide whether to keep the truth to herself--or risk losing the rest of her family.
Suspenseful, searing, and poignant, this beautifully written novel offers stunning insights into the meaning of honesty--in marriage, in friendship, and in justice. . .
