On Borrowed Time
Rumor has it no one has ever gone to Kendrick Falls with Jen and come back the same. Richard is no exception - halfway up the mountain, he loses control of the car, and it rolls. Richard is shaken, but Jen is gone. He can't find her, the police can't find her - and no one in Richard's life will confirm Jen's existence.

Roy, Lori  
Bent Road
For twenty years, Celia Scott has watched her husband Arthur hide from the secrets surrounding his sister Eve's death. But the 1967 Detroit riots frighten him even more than his past, and he convinces Celia to pack up their family and return to Bent Road. While Arthur and their oldest daughter slip easily into rural life, Celia and the two younger children struggle to fit in. And then a local girl disappears, catapulting the family headlong into a dead man's curve. On Bent Road, a battered red truck cruises ominously along the prairie; a lonely little girl dresses in her dead aunt's clothes; a boy hefts his father's rifle in search of a target; a mother realizes she no longer knows how to protect her children. It is a place where people learn: Sometimes killing is the kindest way.
