The Year She Disappeared

Harleman, Ann. The Year She Disappeared.

6 words: Mother suspects abuse. Grandmother rescues child.

When Nan's daughter Alex asks Nan to take 4-year-old Jane away for a while, the plan was to keep Jane in an unknown location for six weeks while Alex figured out how to keep her daughter safe. Nan and Jane fly to Providence, Rhode Island to stay with a childhood friend of Nan's. The plan, however, goes awry in a number of ways.

Interesting, but full of implausible situations that make the central plot less believable.

Fiction. Suspense. 2008. 306 pages.


  1. I like the cover but the book itself doesn't look like something I would enjoy.

  2. kailana - It was not a book that would make me look for something else by the author. :)
