Silhouette by Nancy L. Cratty. Published by Covenant Communication, Inc.

Seventeen years ago, Leah sent her young son, Austin, to the dark silhouette that she assumed was her husband. Austin disappeared. The extended search for their son has taken an emotional toll on their marriage and family as Leah and Garrett refuse to give up hope that Austin will be found. Will the new person who appears in their life help heal or harm their family?

I really enjoyed this book. It is clear, interesting and doesn't leave any loose ends. I couldn't predict the plot at all. How could it end so that it was okay for all involved? The author made sure that this story was realistic but hopeful. It certainly gave me a lot to think about - including thoughts about what holds a family together. I recommend it.
