Eleven-year-old Lauren O'Neil vanished one sunny afternoon as she walked home from school. Six years later, her parents, Rachel and Dan, still tirelessly scour their Oregon hometown and beyond, always believing Lauren will be found. Then one day, the call comes.

Lauren has been rescued from a secluded farm mere miles away, and her abductor has confessed. Yet her return is nothing like Rachel imagined. Though the revelations about what Lauren endured are shocking, most heartbreaking of all is to see the bright-eyed, assertive daughter she knew transformed into a wary, polite stranger.

Lauren's first instinct is to flee. For years she's been told her parents forgot her; now she doubts the pieces of her life can ever fit together again. But Rachel refuses to lose her a second time. Little by little they must relearn what it means to be family, trusting that their bond is strong enough to guide them back to each other.

"Noonan writes another gripping family story that handles sensitive issues with grace. The timely plot will hold readers in its sway." -- Booklist

"Rosalind Noonan has done an excellent job tackling this difficult topic...The story is both sad and uplifting, an offering of hope that will remain in the forefront of your mind long after you finish the last chapter." --San Francisco Book Review

A good book. I never thought of the aftermath of this kind of kidnapping. I would rat it PG. No bad language or gore and only brief sexual scenes.
