In this atmospheric novel from award-winning author Karen Brown, Sadie’s childhood was marked by the unexplained disappearance of a neighborhood girl. Many years later, she is still haunted by the events of that summer.
It’s an idyllic New England summer, and Sadie is a precocious only child
on the edge of adolescence. It seems like July and August will pass
lazily by just as they have every year before. But one day Sadie and
her best friend play a seemingly harmless prank on a neighborhood girl.
Soon after, that same little girl disappears from a backyard
barbecue—and she is never seen again. Twenty years pass, and Sadie is
still living in the same quiet suburb. She’s married to a good man, has
two beautiful children, and seems to have put her past behind her. But
when a boy from her old neighborhood returns to town, the nightmares of
that summer begin to resurface, and its unsolved mysteries will
finally become clear. Download and start listening now!
