What would you do if one day, without any warning, your child would disappear as if the earth had swallowed it? There one moment, and the next moment – gone. This is the story of Anna, Ronnie’s mother.

Was Ronny kidnapped? Did she run away? Did the worst possible happen? And maybe 21-year-old Ronnie got tired of Anna? Tired of her Meddling and Pressing, always wanting to be there and help, sometimes a little too much.

From Tel-Aviv’s underworld of nightclubs, drugs and prostitutes, to the beauty and mysteries of India, Anna goes on a fascinating journey, following clues and threads of information, alongside an adventures fixer and with the help of friends and a variety of characters she never met before. Anna is desperate to discover the fate of her younger daughter. While she realizes that maybe she didn’t know her daughter as well as she thought, ramaging toward her is the greatest natural disasters of our time: the tsunami.

When I first started trying to read this book, that’s what kept happening – I was just trying and couldn’t get into it. I thought maybe this book would be dragging, but then something happened – I got caught up in the story and I couldn’t put the book down.

As the story progresses, Anna is trying to find her missing daughter, Ronnie, but she doesn’t know where she went.  She is like every mother worrying when she hasn’t seen or heard from her child.  She isn’t sure if Anna was kidnapped or if she actually left on her own.  We follow Anna’s journey as she follows the only clues she can leading to information about Ronny’s disappearance.

As I continued to read the book, I could see that Anna is like many mothers – willing to do whatever, whenever – just to make sure her child, even a grown one, is safe from harm. The struggles of letting a grown child find there own way is something any parent can understand. The action and suspense in this book doesn’t take away from that struggle, either. It also became clear that while Anna is searching for Ronnie, she began to realize she didn’t know her daughter as well as she thought.
