Publisher's Summary

"Take my hand, little one."

Fran finds her standing by the swings. A little girl, Esther, no older than seven years old, by herself in the dead of night, her pretty but old-fashioned yellow dress covered in grass stains and her hair dishevelled. She says she's waiting for Father, and that strikes Fran as particularly odd. 

After Esther is reunited with her family, Fran can't stop thinking about this pious child whose imaginary friend is God. Fran's instincts tell her something is very wrong. Why does Esther keep running away from home, and how did she get that bruise on her leg? 

Fran's husband warns her not to get too close, but one morning, Esther and her family disappear. Where did they go? Why did they leave their furniture behind? 

Fran knows in her gut that something terrible is going to happen to that child, and she can't stand by while it happens. No matter the cost. 

After all, she found her. But can she save her?

Somewhat implausible

Esther as a 7 year old would not have had the maturity to behave as portrayed and it is totally unbelievable that a woman would arbitrarily uproot herself and travel to the wilds of Arizona to search for this adult woman and child I found this ultimately far fetched but will say that the narrator did an excellent job.

wtf did I just read?!

This is a very strange book and not well written. A woman gets on a plane to chase after neighbors that left without warning and leaves the country to find out why and ends up in a cult?! just weird. I've been impressed with this author in the past but not this time.

Sarah Denzil does it again!!!

Really liked how it ended. Realistic to a traumatic story and outcome. I need to read more books by this author.
