Add to Wish List
It happens quietly one August morning. As dawn's
shimmering light drenches the humid Iowa air, two
families awaken to find their little girls have gone
missing in the night.
Seven-year-old Calli Clark is sweet, gentle, a dreamer
who suffers from selective mutism brought on by a
tragedy that pulled her deep into silence as a toddler.
Calli's mother, Antonia, tried to be the best mother she
could within the confines of marriage to a mostly
absent, often angry husband. Now, though she denies that
her husband could be involved in the possible
abductions, she fears her decision to stay in her
marriage has cost her more than her daughter's voice.
Petra Gregory is Calli's best friend, her soul mate and
her voice. But neither Petra nor Calli has been heard
from since their disappearance was discovered. Desperate
to find his child, Martin Gregory is forced to confront
a side of himself he did not know existed beneath his
intellectual, professorial demeanor.
Now these families are tied by the question of what
happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in
the silence of unspoken family secrets.
