Overview

Vanished by Mary McGarry Morris

Aubrey Wallace is the kind of man no one notices. Dotty Johnson is the kind of woman no one can ingore. One afternoon, they both disappear from the small Vermont town where they live. The next day, two hundred miles away, a toddler is snatched from her Massachusetts home.

For the next five years, Aubrey, Dotty, and the kidnapped child—bound together by strange love and desperate need—are trapped in a nomadic existence governed by their constant fear of discovery. Canny, the little girl, becomes Aubrey's entire existence. But Dotty wants out. She is tired of being saddled with this fearful little man. When she meets Jiggy Huller, a brutal ex-convict, the wheels of Canny's return to her natural parents are wrenched fatally into motion.

I found this book in a used bookstore and bought it because I read and liked 'Songs in Ordinary Time' by M.M. Morris. Before I read it , I read the reviews on-line and was surprised by how much everyone loved it. After reading it, I whole-heartedly agree. It is one of the best books I have ever read. It is scary yet fascinating. I read to learn, relax, find out how others live, etc. and boy was this a trip into a strange, horrible, unknown world. I will not look at things the same way again. What a beautiful, horrifying little journey this book was. I will read everything Ms. Morris writes. A true masterpiece. Highly recommended!
