Overview

Laurie Brandon isn't crazy. It's a bout of panic that has her muttering indecipherable sounds and crying out like a mad woman, an attack brought on by her infant daughter's sudden disappearance from the town's annual Apple Festival. Not insanity. She needs help to save Emily. Someone has to see that, do something.

But her recent history of psychosis coupled with witness claims that Emily was never at the festival with Laurie isn't helping her credibility. Neither is recent suspension from her job as a school teacher over stability concerns. Perhaps most damaging, though, is Laurie's insistence that her ex-husband, Jake, had something to do with the child's disappearance. Any sane person knows a dead man can't run off with a baby.

The town sheriff believes Laurie is, at best, unreliable and possibly something much worse. But Laurie knows what she saw. She knows other things, too, details too hard to believe and even harder to accept. Now, she needs to convince someone – anyone – that Emily is in danger before the sheriff locks Laurie away permanently.
