I loved this book! Could not put it down! I read it in 2 days. It is a heartbreaking story about a family's loss and how each member copes. I was near tears more than once!

This was a great book, when I seen the movie it made me cry, but the books are always so much better. This is a must read.

What if your son was kidnapped, leaving no trace? This novel tells the story of one such family and what happens to them over the course of the investigation, the years after, and the eventual discovery of what became of their son. Very enjoyable, although it is heavy reading - this is no summer beach read!

As a mother, I found the content of this book disturbing yet I was compelled to read it. Even when I put the book down, the characters and story lingered. Made me think about how I would react if I'd 'lost' my child. Thought provoking.

Pat and Beth Cappadora experience every parent's nightmare - the abduction of their three year old son, Ben from a hotel lobby. For nine years Beth's mind and emotions are suspended in time. Pat can do nothing to bring his son back. Their older son, Vincent, turns into a deliquent in an attempt to break the band of silence that reigns in the Cappadora home.

Nine years later something so unexpected happens, that it changes everything that once seemed true.

Compelling reading about a family struck by tragedy and torn apart by love.

Good one!
