Richmond's latest is mesmerizing and beautifully written. This lyrical tale of the drama surrounding one woman's life packs a tremendous emotional punch that will resonate with readers for years to come.
Jake distances himself emotionally and physically from Abby, who believes that he is blaming her for Emma's disappearance. Though Jake insists on having a memorial service to find closure with Emma's disappearance, Abby continues to search for the young girl. Abby travels to Costa Rica because she believes that through hypnosis, she has discovered clues that will lead her to the people she saw near the beach the day Emma disappeared. Jake evades Abby's phone calls while she continues her search in Costa Rica. If Abby is able to miraculously find Emma, can she and Jake ever return to the way they were before her disappearance? Or will Abby embark on a new relationship with Nick, a handsome client who has provided her with friendship in her time of need? (Delacorte, Apr., 384 pp., $20.00)
