From acclaimed author Laura Ruby comes a
fascinating, powerful, and wholly original novel about a beautiful young woman,
a haunted young man, and a secretive Midwestern town.
Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps—gaps to trip
you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young,
beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After
all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and
Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years ago, their mother hightailed it
to Oregon for a brand-new guy, a brand-new life. That’s just how things go, the
people said. Who are you going to blame?
Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He
knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose
face he cannot remember. But the searches turn up nothing, and no one believes
him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone and
every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.
As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the
people of Bone Gap—their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their
uncertain futures—Laura Ruby weaves a heartbreaking tale of love and loss,
magic and mystery, regret and forgiveness—a story about how the face the world
sees is never the sum of who we are. Download and start listening now!
