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!
