An addictive novel of psychological suspense from the
award-winning author of Night Night, Sleep Tight, about
three generations of women haunted by a little girl’s
disappearance, and the porcelain doll that may hold the
key to the truth . . .
Seven-year-old Lissie Woodham and her four-year-old
sister Janey were playing with their porcelain dolls in
the front yard when an adorable puppy scampered by. Eager
to pet the pretty dog, Lissie chased after the pup as it
ran down the street. When she returned to the yard,
Janey’s precious doll was gone . . . and so was Janey.
Forty years after Janey went missing, Lis—now a mother
with a college-age daughter of her own—still blames
herself for what happened. Every year on the anniversary
of her sister’s disappearance, their mother, Miss Sorrel,
places a classified ad in the local paper with a picture
of the toy Janey had with her that day—a one-of-a-kind
porcelain doll—offering a generous cash reward for its
return. For years, there’s been no response. But this
year, the doll came home.
It is the first clue in a decades-old mystery that is
about to turn into something far more sinister—
endangering Lis and the lives of her mother and daughter
as well. Someone knows the truth about what happened all
those years ago, and is desperate to keep it hidden.
