Publisher's Summary

He knows the one thing that would destroy me would be to separate me from my daughter...

Catherine Clarke defied her family's expectations when she married Gabriel, a handsome Lebanese businessman. After moving to Gabriel's homeland and welcoming a baby daughter, Catherine knew she had to acclimate herself to the strange new world. Yet both her husband and her surroundings became more volatile and threatening than she could have ever imagined.

When Gabriel forbids her to return to the States, Catherine devises a plan to deceive him, but she vastly underestimates how far he will go to punish her. And after her daughter, Ann Marie, is abducted and taken deep into the mountains of Beirut - protected by family, culture, and law - the only thing on Catherine's side is the fierceness of a mother's love. She's prepared to move heaven and earth to find her child.

Told from alternating points of view - that of a daughter whose past is a mystery and of a mother with painful secrets to share - this profoundly moving story of impossible risks will resonate with anyone whose love has no boundaries.

Good read

An unusual story about lost loves and the tragedy that ensues when love goes wrong. The story is about a woman going through a very hard divorce and the dynamics between her father and mother during their early marriage and subsequent divorce, as well as her abduction from her mother. Like so many non-fiction books about strong women, this is one of those books that makes us so thankful that we are born in the US.
