From one of America's best-loved storytellers - the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller WHERE THE HEART IS - comes her latest national bestseller, a tale of a small Oklahoma town and the mystery that has haunted its residents for years.

In 1972, windswept DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by the murder of a young mother, Gaylene Harjo, and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child's pajama bottoms were discovered on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared that he, too, had been killed, although his body was never found.

Nearly thirty years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare, shocking the town and stirring up long-buried memories. But what he discovers about the night he vanished is more astonishing than he or anyone could have imagine. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and a secret that still cries out for justice...and redemption.

This is the second book that I have read by this author and I enjoyed it almost as much as "Where the Heart Was".

This is an easy read-on-the-plane kind of story requiring very little from the reader. The premise: a veterinarian to the stars from Beverly Hills discovers he was adopted and sets out to meet his biological mother, an unwed teenager from a small town in Oklahoma. Turns out she was murdered shortly after he was born, and to add to that shock, he is also supposed to be dead. What follows is a bit of a detective story, a discovery of family story, an introduction to reality story, and an unbelievable love story. As you can tell I didn't really invest much in this book, but it would be a time passer for anyone with a couple of hours going unfilled.

I love great stories -- stories rich with character; touching; moving; inspiring. I just finished Shoot the Moon and it is a great story. I had difficulty putting it down, and I didn't want it to end. Enjoy! :)
