What do Shay and Colleen have in common? Absolutely nothing,
except that their sons are missing. Brought together by circumstance,
the two women, one from the wrong side of the tracks in California
and the other from a wealthy East Coast background, must find
some common ground if they are ever to see their children
and Paul are about as different as their mothers are. Taylor,
outgoing, popular, and handsome, is in stark contrast to Paul's
reserved manner and troubled past. Yet the two became friends
while working on oil rigs in North Dakota. And now they are
they victims of an accident and cover- up in the unsafe working
conditions of the oil company? Or was it something more sinister?
With no help from the oil company or the police department,
Shay and Colleen must do what they can to get any information
about their boys and that proves to be easier said than done.
Author Sophie Littlefield offers a unique look into the psyche
and the effects that extreme emotional stress can have on

of the situation creates a perfect drama, capturing the reader's
interest and imagination.

to skim the first half. But when the real drama began, and
the story began to unfold, I slowed down, became enthralled,
and did not put the book down until I had finished.
