Evelyn McMillan has vanished without a trace. Wife and mother of three from a Southern Ontario farming community, her disappearance sparks not only a police investigation, but also the imaginations of the local townsfolk. Detective Carol Seaforth’s inquiries bring her closer to Evelyn’s husband Trevor, but farther away from her own marriage. In a small diner on the outskirts of London, Ontario, secrets are revealed when those who come there are forced to look below the surface of those they love, or thought they loved.

Editorial Review

"It's an intriguing premise that playwright Florence Gibson thrusts before us… and one that makes you think about our most intimate relationships and how they define who we are." —National Post
