Synopsis: When three-year-old Olivia disappears, her parents are overwhelmed with grief. Weeks go by and Olivia’s mother refuses to leave the cottage, staring out at the turbulent sea and praying it didn’t claim her precious daughter’s life. Not far away, another mother watches proudly as her daughter starts school. Jennifer has loved Hailey for five years, but the child is suddenly moody and difficult, and there’s a nagging worry of doubt that Jennifer cannot shake off. As she struggles to maintain control there are gaps in her story that even she can’t explain. Time is running out for Maggie at the cottage, and also for Jennifer and Hailey. No one can underestimate a mother’s love for her child, and no one can predict the lengths one will go to, to protect her family.
Linda Huber is an exceptional writer. She has a way with words that will make you have a visceral reaction to what you're reading. I found myself actually upset to the point where I had to put this book down because of what was happening to little Olivia. This story is really heart-wrenching, it gives you a up close and personal look behind the scenes of what happens to not only a child that is kidnapped, but to the family that thinks this child is dead.
