Sara is barely six years-old when her father shockingly vanishes from her life. Her mother Ruth, a dreamy and reluctant housewife is left widowed with three small children and the bitter knowledge that she will somehow have to pick up the pieces. Sara finds her own way to escape, and to survive.

A bittersweet and moving tale of childhood and the loss of innocence, the best-selling author of Jepthe's Daughter, Sotah, and the Ghost of Hannah Mendes brings the added intensity of a searing personal memoir to this story of growing up, betrayal and the unending resilience of family love.
