This novel, written by the same author as Girl in Translation, is another one focused on women and family secrets.
Sylvie, the beautiful and brilliant successful older daughter of the Lee family, flies to the Netherlands to see her dying grandmother, and then she vanishes.
Amy, the baby of the family, is too young to remember that Sylvie had been raised by a distant relative in a distant place and didn't rejoin her family in America until she was nine because her parents immigrated to the United States, and were too poor to keep her.
Amy has always looked up to her sister and takes it upon herself to find her. She flies to the last place Sylvie was seen, but instead of finding Sylvie, she finds the truth about the secrets Sylvie keeps and how her family's choices have affected them all.
It's described as "both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive portrait of an immigrant family."
