This short novel is enthralling, hard to put down. Jenny Rowan has led an unusual life. Kidnapped at the age of eight, held (often in a wooden box under her captor's bed) for two years, she then escaped and lived for months in a mall. Found and put into foster care, she made a new life for herself, as a successful news editor and now works at a small television station in Washington, D.C.
As the book starts, she is approached by a detective and asked to help if she can a young woman who has just been found, captive for some time, by a kidnapper.
As Jenny is drawn out of her hidden past by this young woman, and other people in need, she participates, but also observes. She can relate to this others and offer meaningful understanding and comfort, but she still stands apart. Jenny is an interesting character and the story is like no other I have read. Sallis has done it again.
