Fourteen-year-old Cynthia Archer woke up one morning to discover her entire family had disappeared. No note. No clues. Nothing and no one to tell her where they went, what happened to them, whether they are alive or dead. Twenty-five years later, Cynthia and Terry Archer still live in Milford, Connecticut, not far from the house from which her family vanished. They have a solid marriage and a young daughter of their own, but the questions remain. What happened to Cynthia's family? Why did they disappear? How could they have left her behind? Cynthia thought there was nothing worse than not knowing the truth. But she was wrong. Knowing is going to be a lot worse?
