Publisher's Summary

From the author of the “compelling” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis) and critically acclaimed Everything You Want Me to Be, a riveting and suspenseful thriller about the mysterious disappearance of a boy and his stunning return 10 years later. 

There is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters. Ten years ago a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned.  

Search teams found their campsite ravaged by what looked like a bear. They were presumed dead until a decade later...the son appeared. Discovered while ransacking an outfitter store, he was violent and uncommunicative and sent to a psychiatric facility. Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with their high-profile patient. No matter how she tries, however, he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last 10 years of his life.  

But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father, who has disappeared from the known world.

What will love do?

I enjoyed this book for what would be brutal honesty about how we as humans can react to issue's of childhood rejection, abandonment, trauma's through dysfunctional families. It deals with issue's of mental illness and how it affects people's life's. It had many twist's and unexpected turns in most every chapter. Glad I took a chance on reading it. But it may not be for everyone

Meh

The reader talks too fast and the sentences run together. Several times I had to stop and go back to catch what she was saying. Story was just okay. wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it.

Heart warming!

Great stoey. Makes me wonder about our future being predetermined or how fate seems to be inevitable.

Being from Minnesota, it was very annoying the narrator could not pronounce “portage” correctly! Plus a few other words.

Amazing story

This book is incredible. It’s heartbreaking at times. It causes all sorts of emotions. It isn’t “true to life” so if you hate books that cause you to say, “That wouldn’t work like that,” then you may not like this one. I loved it.

I can't help loving this book, I was born and raised in Duluth. Lived just a block from Lincoln Park. It was just like going home again.
