On a cold January morning, Susan leaves her husband alone for a few minutes and returns to find him gone. He has Alzheimer's disease, and he has wandered alone into a frigid landscape with no sense of home or direction.

The massive search for her husband brings Susan together with Jeff, a search-and-rescue expert and social worker preoccupied with his young wife's betrayal. In Jeff's care is Corey, a young boy rendered mute and abandoned by his family after setting a fire in which his older brother was killed.

As the temperature drops and the search-and-rescue effort builds toward a startling climax, each of the three reflects on their life choices as they struggle with haunting and persistent questions: How am I responsible? What more could I have done?

    " From the preview, I didn't expect to like this as much as I do. The interplay of the characters is masterful and I loved the ending. Though a bit predictable, it was satisfying. The backflashes were confusing at times but there are fully developed backstories for all the characters. "

    " Interesting novel with a surprise ending. A scientist calls a tracker to help when her architect husband stricken with Alzheimer's goes missing in the snow. both share their tales as they await news from the search team. "

    " An okay book...lots of flashbacks, which makes me crazy!
    "

    " Excellent read - tight and well written; deals sensitively with multiple themes, including Alzheimer's and love lost. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerry | 11/8/2010

    " depressing and not original. The characters could have had so much more depth to them to make them appealing. Didn't quite make any connection to them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamye | 10/4/2010

    " The story line was ok but the author kept jumping around from past to present, character to character and the narrator was pretty boring! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/30/2010

    " Wow, very sad book from the eyes of a caregiver "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 8/13/2010

    " Received this book free in a swag bag. Well written and good enough, not great by any stretch. Kept my interest and was a decent read. It probably was the first book I've read dealing with Alzheimer's so it was eye opening in that respect.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/30/2010

    " I have to say, I loved this book. The ending left me wanting a bit more. I felt I knew each of the characters and genuinely liked the lead character. I just like this authors style and hope to hear more from her! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 7/24/2010

    " This book had a simple plot and was a quick read. I liked the story but never really connected with any of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anita | 7/13/2010

    " This was hard to get into. I didn't really like any of the characters, even though I sympathized with them. Meh. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 6/21/2010

    " There was a swear word in the third paragraph of the book. I tried to let it slide and continue then a few pages later there were more than five very vulgar words. I had to put the book down at that point. I wish there was a rating system for books like there is in movies! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 6/9/2010

    " This is a complex book of many lost and some found - a search and rescue book of the highest degree. Lots to talk about if you read it in a book group. "
