New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard captured the heart of a nation with The Deep End of the Ocean, her celebrated debut novel about mother Beth Cappadora, a child kidnapped, a family in crisis. Now, inNo Time to Wave Goodbye, the unforgettable Cappadoras are in peril once again, forced to confront an unimaginable evil. 

It has been twenty-two years since Beth Cappadora’s three-year-old son Ben was abducted. By some miracle, he returned nine years later, and the family began to pick up the pieces of their lives. But their peace has always been fragile: Ben returned from the deep end as another child and has never felt entirely at ease with the family he was born into. Now the Cappadora children are grown: Ben is married with a baby girl, Kerry is studying to be an opera singer, and Vincent has emerged from his troubled adolescence as a fledgling filmmaker. 

The subject of Vincent’s new documentary, “No Time to Wave Goodbye,” shakes Vincent’s unsuspecting family to the core; it focuses on five families caught in the tortuous web of never knowing the fate of their abducted children. Though Beth tries to stave off the torrent of buried emotions, she is left wondering if she and her family are fated to relive the past forever.

The film earns tremendous acclaim, but just as the Cappadoras are about to celebrate the culmination of Vincent’s artistic success, what Beth fears the most occurs, and the Cappadoras are cast back into the past, revisiting the worst moment of their lives–with only hours to find the truth that can save a life. High in a rugged California mountain range, their rescue becomes a desperate struggle for survival. 

No Time to Wave Goodbye
 is Jacquelyn Mitchard at her best, a spellbinding novel about family loyalty, and love pushed to the limits of endurance.

    " No Time to Wave Goodbye is the sequel to Mitchard's Deep End of the Ocean and follows the Cappadora family as the children are all adults and Ben, the kidnapped son, has a wife and child of his own. Vincent the oldest son makes a documentary following the families of kidnapped children that have not been found - the movie at first threatens to tear the family apart as it brings up such painful memories, but then it brings everyone closer until the unthinkable happens - Ben's daughter is kidnapped. Then the family suffers yet again. Some parts of the granddaughter's kidnapping are a little overdone, but the very end of the book makes up for it. Overall, a very interesting and quick read. "

    " I was so glad to get a 'finish' to "The Deep End of the Ocean". This was satisfying and exciting. "

    " While some of the plot of this book seemed farfetched, I couldn't help but be sucked back into this book just as much as I was sucked into Deep End of the Ocean when I read it many years ago. I loved that there was this sequel since I missed reading those characters. "

    " This is a sequel to The Deep End of the Ocean; it takes place 20+ years later. Great book! "
