Masterfully written and beautifully told, Heather
Gudenkauf's debut is a stunning novel of family devotion,
honesty and regret that will linger long after the last page
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.
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.
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.
