But when her youngest child, fifteen-year-old Naomi, doesn't come home after her school play, Jenny's seemingly ideal life begins to crumble. The authorities launch a nationwide search with no success. Naomi has vanished and her family is broken. As the months pass, the worst-case scenarios--kidnapping, murder--seem less plausible.

Very depressing, not what I expected from the teasers on the cover as 'suspenseful '. Would not recommend it. ( )

I received a copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway. I had a difficult time following this story the writing seemed choppy to me the back & forth in timelines from the night of Naomi's disappearance and Jenny at the cottage was confusing. I have read books that go back & forth before but usually at chapter breaks this book contained random back & forth moments I think that was the difference. ( )

Not a very memorable book. I didn't really connect with any of the characters. Readable though. ( )

Mah..era nella categoria thriller ma c'è ben poco di thriller in questo libro. E' anche un po' noioso. ( )

Fifteen year old Naomi goes missing. She's the daughter of loving parents and she has twin brothers, one of whom was supposed to have picked her up from her theatre practice on the night of her disappearance.
The story is told from the mother's point of view, Jenny. Jenny is a successful doctor. She lives a well-off, middle class life. She's comfortable, secure, happy, but all of that changes as she torments herself about her daughter's disappearance. In fact, as the story unravels we see how little Jenny really knew her own daughter and how distanced Jenny was from the feelings and passions of her own family.
I had two irritations with this novel - the first was the constant switching between the past and present which I found disorientating and misleading. The second was the repetitious self-criticisms of the mother, which, though understandable, I found became annoying the more it was repeated. It is also true that the last half of the book really dragged with very little new material added.
That said, this story has a powerful ending as we find out what really happened to Naomi and Jenny finds out too.
3 and a half stars. ( )
