Summary
When Liv and Nora decide to take their husbands and children on a holiday cruise, everyone is thrilled. The adults are lulled by the ship's comfort and ease. The four children--ages six to eleven--love the nonstop buffet and their newfound independence. But when they all go ashore for an adventure in Central America, a series of minor misfortunes and miscalculations leads the families farther from the safety of the ship. One minute the children are there, and the next they're gone. The disintegration of the world the families knew--told from the perspectives of both the adults and the children--is riveting and revealing. The parents, accustomed to security and control, turn on one another and blame themselves, while the seemingly helpless children discover resources they never knew they possessed
Summary
A tropical vacation cruise turns nightmarish for two families whose children go missing during a stop in Central America, a crisis that triggers blame, animosity and new priorities as the once-happy parents scramble to recover their children and their lives
