Description

It's 1956, and working-mother Ava Lark and her son, Lewis, have rented a house in a less-than-welcoming Boston suburb. There, Lewis finds he is only able to befriend the other fatherless kids on the block, Jimmy and Rose. But when Jimmy goes missing, neighborhood paranoia ramps to new heights, further ostracizing Ava and Lewis.Lewis never recovers from the loss of his childhood friend. In his twenties, he is a failure in love, living without direction, estranged from his mother. When Jimmy's disappearance is unexpectedly solved, however, Lewis, Rose, and Ava are thrown together once more to try to untangle the remaining pieces of the puzzle and reclaim something of what they have lost.

Professional reviews

"Xe Sands has a talent for capturing the essence of the characters in Leavitt's story of tightly held secrets, betrayal, and reconciliation. In 1956, Lewis befriends other fatherless youths on his suburban Boston block, but when 12-year old Jimmy disappears, Lewis and his mother, Ava, find themselves ostracized for petty and unfounded reasons. Sands's performance subtly evokes the varied personalities of adolescent boys, the wistful longing of a youthful divorcŽe, the lazy drawl of a jazz musician, the anxiety of frantic parents, and the judgmental overtones of nosy neighbors. Levitt's lyrical prose weaves backstory into present time seamlessly. The mystery of the missing child is resolved a decade later in a way that touches each of the damaged lives with startling consequences. A.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
