The Dark Side  by Danielle Steel  Zoe and Rose Morgan were a perfect complement as sisters.  Zoe had dark, shining, straight hair, Rose on the other hand had curly, halo of white-blond hair which sat as a cap on her head. Zoe always was shy, Rose was an irresistible child.  Rose was three when she was diagnosed with leukemia.  Zoe asked her mother what that was and she tried to explain it to her.  Zoe saw something else in her eyes, fear.  Rose would go to hospital with her mother and Zoe stayed with her dad.

About The Book

It was meant to be your daughter’s first sleepover.  Now it’s an abduction. Lucia Blix went home from school for a playdate with her new friend Josie. Later that evening, Lucia’s mother Elisa dropped her overnight things round and kissed her little girl goodnight.

The next morning, when Lucia’s dad arrived to pick her up, the house was empty. No furniture, no family, no Lucia.

We’re almost an hour delayed when we push back from the gate, but the pilots are confident we’ll recover the time with the strong tail wind.

The Man Behind Closed Doors  a Mystery by Maria Frankland  What could be so bad that a six-year-old stops talking?

behind their troubled marriage, it seems that only his six-year-old knows what really happened. But she’s trapped in her own world of silence.
