When eight-year-old Sophie mysteriously vanishes during a weekend camping trip, a desperate search is launched to find the child. Her family is unaware that Sophie has found refuge in a remote cabin inhabited by a reclusive woman who has her own secrets to hide.

Full Synopsis
Eight-year-old Sophie Donohue just wanted to be like every other little girl. Which is why her mother, Janine, reluctantly agreed to let her go on the weekend camping trip with her Brownie troop. But when Janine arrives to pick up Sophie after the trip, her daughter is not with the others. Somehow, along the forested route from West Virginia, Sophie has disappeared.

Sophie is no ordinary eight-year-old. She suffers from a rare disease, and Janine has recently enrolled her in an experimental treatment as a last effort to save her life—despite the vehement objections of her ex-husband, Joe. Without her medication, Sophie cannot survive long. All her mother's instincts tell Janine that Sophie is alive, but time is running out.

"Diane Chamberlain pulls out all the stops with this incredibly intense and utterly riveting drama. The emotional turmoil and desperation shown by these characters is poignantly and vividly drawn." ---RT Book Reviews

"Well-drawn characters and an unexpected and riveting plot make this a memorable thriller in the tradition of Joy Fielding and Mary Higgins Clark." ---Booklist
