Summary:

I won't say a word. Cross my heart and hope to die. . . . Jonah Baum, a professor of poetry at a remote Vermont college, sees his ordinary life torn apart when his wife, Rebecca, and young daughter, Sally, vanish from their home. No evidence of a kidnapping. No sign of murder. No proof Rebecca abandoned her marriage. Just Sally's chilling drawings, Jonah's little lies, and a sheriff's nagging fears that nothing is what it seems. Even Sally's best friend, Lucinda, knows Sally wouldn't just disappear, not after they've shared so many secrets--especially about what they saw in the woods, a secret Lucinda swore she'd keep. As the search for Rebecca and Sally intensifies, suspicion drives Jonah into seclusion. Now, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of their disappearance, Jonah finds a girl in the woods and grows convinced she's linked to Sally. Is she a coincidence? Is she even real, or just a manifestation of Jonah's desperation and grief? Or is something more sinister at play in the dark woods?--from back cover.
