I loved the way it switches the perspectives to different characters in the novel instead of just from one point of view. The plot was interesting and the outcome was a bit of a surprise. All in all an ejoyable read.

The premise is very interesting--a young girl disappears from her own front yard. Told from the perspective of the girl's mother, her father, and the mother's best friend (an Episcopal priest), it had uneven places but on the whole was plotted well. There is a good bit about spirituality in this book (how one can maintain a relationship with God when one's child has been abducted, for example), which may appeal to some readers, and may turn others off.

This book had an interesting storyline that was quite thought-provoking! It involves a missing child and the affect it has on the family.

I enjoyed this book, although I figured some parts of it out before it ended. It clealry made me think about choices and how those we make effect others. I would recommend this book.

I LOVED this book!! I had to remind myself everytime I picked it up not to look ahead to find out what happens. It definitely keeps you guessing and at the same time makes you think. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone. One of the best I've EVER read!

Any book about a missing child is gripping. This is no exception, except that as the novel moves along, the abduction seems to be more of a subplot. Instead, the book takes on the themes of marriage ennui versus passion for a near stranger, mental illness, and a good dose of faith as opposed to mere religion. Then we get a sub-plot of a very evil criminal, and whether it's ethical to give assistance and tolerate being near that person.

I cared enough to keep turning pages, but it was odd to me how the actually abduction and subsequent story becomes more of a background
