" 'It's been two weeks; do you have any idea what that does to a person? Your child missing, almost certainly dead and you don't know how or why.' " page 95
I posted this line for Teaser Tuesday this past week because it perfectly describes what this book is about. Joshua and Natalie Sandler come home one day to find their 14 year old son, Dan, gone. The police, their community and friends have no idea what has happened to him-dead or alive, kidnapped or a runaway-there are no answers. The book focuses on how Dan's parents deal with this terrible situation.
How would you deal with it? Would you ever give up your search for answers? Would you completely shut down and forget all about the other people and things you love in your life? What happens to the marriage when spouses react differently?
This was a very interesting and different take on the missing child story. Instead of focusing on the mystery of what happened to Dan, it deals with the people affected by his disappearance. The affect of not knowing what happened.
The only problem I had were the sex scenes. They seemed a bit awkward, the wording a departure from the rest of the book. Perhaps it was the use of certain words that made me want to skip these sections (only two), words that would seem more at home in another type of book.
