Gray McGonigle s wife and son have been missing for 5 months with no explanation of where they have gone He has been actively searching for them, even hiring a private investigator to find them he also has been wondering why God would let this happen, also wondering if this was revenge for an argument they had before they went missing In the first chapter his wife Marissa and son Cody are running from away from their captor in the woods, while getting lost several times Marissa had to leave Cody in a part of the woods to backtrack and lose their captor in case he had woken up Marissa ends up getting lost, the captor catches up with her when Marissa is trying to climb out of a ravine, falls and loses consciousness However Cody is found, but he has stopped talking After Cody is found a town group starts a rescue group in the area where Cody was found, as they get closer the captor climbs a tree to hide from them after takes Marissa s shoes so they can t run a clue to the captor s mental capacity , however the rescuers find Marissa at the bottom of the ravine unconscious and bleeding badly The fall caused temporary amnesia The rest of the book covers the recovery of Marissa s memory, Cody s wrestling with identifying with his captor Stockholm syndrome while trying to find his voice again The rest of the book also watches as the captor stalks Marissa and Cody in their own house and his plans to take Cody again as he is the one he wants Who is he and why does he want Cody and not Marissa There is a subplot loosely tied in with the main plot Gray has a half brother Adam who believes Gray took the inheritance that was rightfully his There were a few things that bothered me about this book, 1 Marissa clearly has doubts about Gray and why they were never found and thinks he even may know who kidnapped them, but yet still tries to rekindle their marriage, 2 Cody who is preschool kindergarden age is able to understand concepts clearly above his age level, at the end of the book where is negotiating with his kidnapper like a SWAT team member, 3 the transition from hatred to brotherly love with Gray to Adam Overall I enjoyed this hearthwarming book.
