A book to make you think. A book that will stop the heart of any parent. A book about a subject that no one wants to discuss. But it happens. It happened to Dan and Jan Forester. Their son, Mike, was missing. They shared a horror and fear common to parents of missing children and waited fearfully for the phone to ring with the fateful call their son had been found. The heartache they endure will be shared by the reader as each tries to handle their pain. Jan is a nurse and seeks help outside of herself, ending in speaking out about child abuse. While Dan retreats inside himself and seeks to soothe his pain in drink until he too decides to take action to get rid of it. Talented author Mark Locke Mills has tackled a difficult subject and created an interesting, well-written tale that will keep you turning the pages as you follow the lives of two people dealing with a horridtrauma, hoping for an end to their pain. Mr. Mills brings an awareness to the subject of child abuse in its many ugly forms and leaves the reader hoping it will one day cease being a reality. Recommended reading for anyone seeking reading material with depth and perception.
