Serena Soltani thought they had the perfect family - she made every effort to please her husband, and protect her daughters from the evils of the world. Respected & admired, she leads a popular mother's group at her church.

Then the unthinkable happens - Tristan, the family's "good girl" disappears. The search brings to light unpleasant truths that prompt Serena to question nearly everything she believes about her children, marriage and faith.

"Where did we go wrong?" Through many struggles Serena learns the painful lesson that true strength isn't found in regaining control of her daughter's choices but in learning to let go.

This books "starts off slowly" but builds and builds until you are entirely caught up in this family's story. Two quirky characters, Aunt Pete - a dear elderly lady is a disaster as cook, but knows how to love and counsel Serena; and Hazel - a woman who showed up at Serena's Bible Study wearing tatoos, clothes MUCH too revealing, rowdy children and dogs, but with a heart of gold. Hazel's quirkty but wise counsel also helps Serena walk through this life trauma.

I highly recommend this book. ( )
