A woman missing.
A husband presumed guilty.
One afternoon in November 1975, ten-year-old Miranda Larkin comes home from school to find her house eerily quiet. Her mother is missing. Nothing else is out of place. There is no sign of struggle. Her mom’s pocketbook remains in the front hall, in its usual spot.
So begins a mystery that will span a lifetime. What happened to Jane Larkin?
Investigators suspect Jane’s husband. A criminal defense attorney, Dan Larkin would surely be an expert in outfoxing the police.
But no evidence is found linking him to a crime, and the case fades from the public’s memory, a simmering, unresolved riddle.
Jane’s three children — Alex, Jeff, and Miranda — are left to be raised by the man who may have murdered their mother.
Two decades later, the remains of Jane Larkin are found. The investigation is awakened. The children, now grown, are forced to choose sides. With their father or against him? Guilty or innocent? And what happens if they are wrong?
A tale about family — family secrets and vengeance, but also family love — All That Is Mine I Carry With Me masterfully grapples with a primal question: When does loyalty reach its limit?
A wonderful well-written novel that crackles with suspense.
Gripping … A masterful piece of writing.
