The Day I Died by Lori Rader-Day is a gripping, unforgettable tale of a mother's desperate search for a lost boy.
Anna Winger is an expert at flying under the radar. That’s one reason she and her teenage son Joshua have moved so many times over the years. Recently, they've moved to the small town of Parks, Indiana. A young boy has gone missing along with his mother, and Anna is asked by her good friend Kent Schaffer to help the local sheriff. Between the urging of Kent, the missing boy, and the fact that his babysitter has been found murdered, Anna can’t refuse.
The special talent Anna brings to the case is her expertise as a handwriting analyst. She usually works for the FBI, where Kent is employed. Anna is also a newspaper advisor for people who want confirmation that their significant other is the right one for them. She's so good, Joshua has taken to printing everything in block letter so she can’t read him.
