A mother's worst nightmare comes true when her son is abducted in a crowded lobby. Many years later, her marriage is unraveling and she is obsessed with finding out if her son is still alive. If he is, could he come back to his family without ruining his life and theirs?
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.
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!
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.
Very interesting, poignant! I found it virtually impossible to put down! A young boy is kidnapped and a family struggles with their grief for years which changes the family dynamics... eventually, though, the boy is "found" and reunited with his family...
