Her first novel, Where the Heart Is, was a selection of Oprah's Book ClubTM, won the Walker Percy Award, and became a #1 New York Times bestseller. Now Billie Letts returns with a tale filled with taut suspense, emotional truth, and what she is known and loved for most-authentically portrayed characters from America's heartland... In 1972, windswept DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by a terrifying crime: the murder of a young mother, Gaylene Harjo, and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child's pajama bottoms were discovered on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared that he, too, had been killed, although his body was never found. Now, nearly thirty years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare, shocking the town with his sudden reappearance and stirring up long-buried memories. But what he discovers about the night he vanished is far more than he, or anyone, bargains for. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and an act with repercussions that still cry out for justice...and redemption.
