Synopsis: Megan sees her daughter Emma everywhere. She's the little girl standing in the supermarket, the child waiting for the swings at the playground, the girl with the ice cream dripping down her face. But it's never Emma.
Emma's been missing for two years.
Unable to handle the constant heartache of all the false sightings, Megan''s husband threatens to walk away unless Megan can agree to accept Emma is gone. Megan's life and marriage is crumbling all around her and she realizes she may have to do the thing she dreads most: move on.
When Megan takes a photo of a little girl with an elderly couple at the town fair, she believes it to be her missing daughter. Unable to let go, she sets in motion a sequence of events that could destroy both families lives.
Review: The first of two books in this series is emotionally charged and captivating. The story goes straight to your heart and draws you into reading the book. The story is one that so many of us fear to have happen to us and it is heart wrenching to see what the mother and family are going through in this book. I felt for all the characters in this book, not just the mother and her family. Holmes did a great job bringing the characters to life and making us feel not only the pain but the hope that this book provides. A very enjoyable read!
