This is the story of a family who moved from Detroit back to the husband's hometown in Kansas.
I see that there are mixed reviews on this book, but I loved it! I liked the characters, and how the events are told from different perspectives throughout the book. There is suspense as you try to figure out what the connections are between the death of a girl 25 yrs ago, and the disappearance of a girl shortly after the family arrives in Kansas.
This is the author's first novel, and I hope to read more. Here's just one example of why I thought this was such great writing.
"In Detroit, Celia knew how to care for her children. She shut off the news when they came down for breakfast, locked the front gate, walked them to school. But here in Kansas, she doesn't know what to lock. Now her fears walk through her very own kitchen, stand on her back steps, sneak up on her at church. In Kansas, she doesn't know how to care for her children."
