"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. Seven-year-old Calli Clark is sweet, gentle, a dreamer who suffers from selective mutism brought on by 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. Now these families are tied by the questions of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in the silence of unspoken family secrets."--p. [4] of cover.… (mais)

I read this a while ago and forgot to mark as read. Very good book with a great plot. Very visual writing! ( )

From the first chapter, I could not put this book down. The story built up perfectly, revealing bits and pieces of the tragic puzzle of these families' lives, making it hard not to put myself in their places. Normally I would have no interest in a story sprung from a child abduction, but I this was written so beautifully. I'm glad I picked it up. ( )

Two little girls go missing in the night. One of them has selective mutism. The book is a suspense novel in that you think you know what happened to the girls, but you really don't. But it's also a tale of family dysfunction as one of the families must contend with alcoholism and its many ramifications for the family dynamic.

All in all, I did enjoy the book (probably 4 stars for enjoyment), but it's very Jodi Picoult-ish. The story is told from multiple perspectives, and there are some hard to fathom coincidences where you need to be willing to suspend disbelief. I really had to knock a star off for lack of believability even though the writing was good enough to compensate to a large degree.

In fact, I really did enjoy the author's writing style, and I'd probably read another book by her if it came along. I would recommend this book as more of a beach type, summer read . . .just not a whole lot of literary merit . . .but enjoyable. ( )

Borrowed this book from a co-worker and was pulled in almost immediately waiting to see what, when and how. Very good book. ( )

Finally, a book I liked with no weird endings! ( )
