Arrowood

By Laura McHugh

Talking Book Number: DB 85091

Meet Arden Arrowood, a late twenty-something woman with a tragic family past who inherits and moves back into her familial home upon the death of her estranged father.  Arden has tried for the past twenty years to solve the mystery of what happened to her twin baby sisters one hot summer day all those years ago when they suddenly disappeared from the front yard, a door on a gold car slamming shut and the driver driving away instantaneously.  Arden believes that her twin sisters were lured into that car by its driver, but she can’t prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt, though her suspicions that she shared with the police at the time were enough to ruin the life of the only man in town who owned a gold colored car. She’s hoping this move back to Arrowood, the familial home of her namesake, might finally shed some light on what happened to her sisters, but she can barely get a straight answer out of her once mentally ill turned reborn evangelical minister’s wife of a mother who lives out of state. And to top it off, she’s being hounded by a person of questionable credentials who’s insisting that the man with the gold car is innocent and had nothing to do with her sisters’ disappearance.
