She loves her three teenage children – her twins, Theo and Ed, and fifteen year old daughter, Naomi. She loves her husband, Ted, a celebrated neurosurgeon. She loves the way that, as a family, they always know each other’s problems – they talk about everything. But when Naomi doesn’t come home after her school play and a nationwide manhunt to catch the kidnapper begins, secrets previously kept from Jenny are revealed. How well does she really know her sons, her husband? How well did she know Naomi? If Jenny is going to find her, she’ll have to first find out the shocking reality of the daughter she thought told her everything.

The days grow short. Apples litter the grass, their flesh pockmarked by crows. As I carry logs from the stack under the overhang today, I tread on a soft globe; it collapses into slime under my feet.
I am cold all the time but she could be colder. Why should I be comfortable? How could I be?
By evening the dog is shivering. The room darkens; I light the fire and the flames pull me near as the regrets begin to flare, burning and hissing in my head.
