A child missing
During registration for a school reunion in Chicago, Beth Cappadora tells her seven-year-old son to watch his three-year-old brother. After being delayed in the registration, when she returns, Ben is missing.
There is a massive search and family crisis. Things change and relationships between members of the family are changed.
Finally, one day when Beth comes to the door of her home, a young boy is asking if she'd like her lawn mowed. She's sure it's Ben.
An excellent debut novel that was made into a film, the story shows what can happen to a family's stability when a tragic event takes place.
