A dark, gripping novel from the author of The Weight of Blood about a mysterious kidnapping and the ways in which our lives are shaped by the stories we create about our pasts.
Arrowood is the most ornate and beautiful of the grand historical houses that line the Mississippi River in Southern Iowa, where the days are long and humid and communities are small and closed. It has its own secrets and ghostly presence: It's where Arden's young twin sisters were abducted nearly 20 years ago, never to be seen again. Now Arden has inherited Arrowood, and she returns to her childhood home determined to establish what really happened that traumatic summer.
But the house and the surrounding town hold their secrets close - and the truth, when Arden finds it, is more devastating than she ever could have imagined.

Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
Good story but a bit predictable. Story moved quickly and narration is pretty good. I especially enjoyed the main character's "in your face" attitude.
I enjoyed this book, good and suspenseful. The only thing that I didn't enjoy was the feeling that it wasn't good if you was a Christian. Liked reading about Keokuk, Ia even though it was av fictional story.
