    Universal and essential, the heart-breaking story of an ordinary American family shaped by tragedy

    Michael's father walked into the woods one day, and out of his family's life for ever. Yet he and his brother and sister see it less as a tragedy in their past and more as a forewarning of the future. For Michael - smart, brilliant, so alive and vital - feels the darkness that drew their father away and how, given the chance, it might take the whole family. He wants to save them - but can he save himself?
