Life has taken an unexpected turn for women in a mothers' coffee group. Baby Amy has disappeared, and her mother, Evelyn, broken and distant in a psychiatric hospital, won't utter a word. Desperate to find Amy, desperate to understand, the women cope with the loss in their own ways. But Evelyn's withdrawal has altered them irreversibly, and each begins to look for something to satisfy the cravings they had not allowed to surface before.... Joanna is dying for cake. Clare is longing to paint again. Susan wants to claw back all the time she's lost. Wendy is trying to forget the past. Then there's Evelyn. Nobody knows what Evelyn wants. But how can she not want her baby back?
