Book synopsis(via Goodreads):
In her page-turning new novel, T. Greenwood follows one woman's journey through heartbreak and loss to courage and resolve, as she searches for the truth about a missing child.
Eight years ago, Tess and Jake were considered a power couple of the New York publishing world--happy, in love, planning a family. Failed fertility treatments and a heartbreaking attempt at adoption have fractured their marriage and left Tess edgy and adrift. A visit to friends in rural Vermont throws Tess's world into further chaos when she sees a young, half-dressed child in the middle of the road, who then runs into the woods like a frightened deer.
The entire town begins searching for the little girl. But there are no sightings, no other witnesses, no reports of missing children. As local police and Jake point out, Tess's imagination has played her false before. And yet Tess is compelled to keep looking, not only to save the little girl she can't forget but to salvage her broken heart as well.

This insomniac's opinion:
Absolutely spellbinding mystery/women's fiction novel. I was immersed in the pages desperately wanting answers to the mystery of the little girl in the tutu and rain boots(the child that Tess believes she sees on the side of the road). There were parts that were less believable than others, but overall it was a solid and enjoyable read, with a satisfying, if saccharine, finish.
Worth staying up all night to read?
