For months Grace keeps up hope that Mary is somewhere, alive and safe, waiting to come home to her -- but as her family and friends give up hope, Grace's marriage begins to crumble. Only one detective, Sam Abraham, shares her determination to find Mary...but could his motives be less than altruistic?
As Sam and Mary work together to track Mary's disappearance, they discover clues that this was more than a random kidnapping and that Mary may have been special to more than just her mother
