In the 1970s, thirty years after a baby's disappearance from the community of DeClare, Oklahoma, a grown Nicky Jack Harjo mysteriously returns.

Blackwell North Amer
In 1972, the town of DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by the terrifying murder of Gaylene Harjo and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child's pajama bottoms were found on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared Nicky Jack was dead, although his body was never found.
Nearly thirty years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare. His sudden reappearance will stun the people of DeClare and stir up long-buried emotions and memories. But what Nicky Jack discovers among the people who remember the night he vanished is far more than he, or anyone, bargains for. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and a shocking act with repercussions that will cry 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! :)
