" This is a beautifully crafted story of a marriage and family. Me. Nicholls has created characters with such depth and complexity. I enjoyed the way the author was able to combine humor with serious issues of relationships and parenting. This book hits high notes in every aspect! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

"Here is the gripping, atmospheric mystery from the very prolific Joyce Carol Oates. Cressida Mayfield has gone missing from her small town of Carthage in upstate New York. The prime suspect in her disappearance is her older sister's fiance, freshly returned from the way in Iraq with devastating injuries both physical and psychological. The tragedy turns the Mayfield family and Carthage upside down. What happened to Cressida? And why can't they find the body? Oates weaves a dark story of intrigue while brilliantly exploring her classic themes of love and family.
