Publisher Comments:

“McQuestion writes with a sharp eye and a sure voice, and as a reader, I was willing to go wherever she wanted to take me.”—Carolyn Parkhurst, author of The Dogs of Babel

Free-spirit Skyla Plinka has found the love and stability she always wanted in her reliable husband, Thomas. Settling into her new family and roles as wife and mother, Skyla finds life in rural Wisconsin satisfying, but she cant seem to quell her growing sense of restlessness. Skylas only reprieve is her growing friendship with neighbor Roxanne, who has five kids (and counting) and a life in constant disarray—but also a life filled with laughter and love.

Much to the dismay of her intrusive mother-in-law, Audrey, Skyla takes a part-time job at the local bookstore and slowly begins to rediscover her voice, independence, and confidence. Throughout one pivotal year in the life of Skyla, Audrey, and Roxanne, all three very different women will learn what it means to love unconditionally.

Synopsis:

What do a suburban mom, her troubled daughter, divorced brothers, former child stars, born-again Christians, and young millionaires have in common? They have all been selected to compete on LOST AND FOUND, the daring new reality show. In teams of two, they will race across the globe--from Egypt to England, from Japan to Sweden--to battle for a million-dollar prize. They must decipher encrypted clues, recover mysterious artifacts, and outwit their opponents to stay in play.

Yet what started as a lark turns deadly serious as the number of players is whittled down, temptations beckon, and the bonds between partners strain and unravel. The question now is not only who will capture the final prize, but at what cost.

Synopsis:

From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Dogs of Babel" comes the story of seven unlikely couples who scour the globe searching for love, treasure, fame, family--and themselves.

Catherine Barrett, July 9, 2012 (view all comments by Catherine Barrett)
An unexpectedly sweet story. Interesting array of characters all finding themselves and their way in the world. When I picked up the book, I did not expect so much of the story to focus on sexuality and coming out, and was pleasantly surprised by the different angles and overall positive outlook of the subject matter. An excellent summer read!
