Missing Emily


The Story


The riveting journey of two women on a collision course to save their daughters’ lives.

Thea is almost there. In a week, she’ll be awarded her law degree from Boston’s Suffolk University. Her years of work, study, and financial struggle as a single mother are nearly over. She’ll take Emily home to Cape Cod, finally able to give her four-year-old the love and attention she deserves.

Katherine is desperate. All of her wealth cannot save Madison. No donor match has been found for a bone marrow transplant, the only treatment that will keep her daughter alive. Katherine’s last hope is her ex-husband’s illegitimate child, who might be a match. But years ago, she’d made an enemy of Thea, whom she now fears will not consent to having Emily as a donor. Katherine questions how far she will go to save her daughter. What will she do if the child is a match? Or worse, if she’s not.
