- About the book
DetailsWhat would you do if one day, without any warning, your child disappeared as if the earth had swallowed it? There’s one moment, and then, in the next moment–gone. This book tells the story that Ronnie’s mother, Anna, had to go through. Was Ronnie kidnapped? Did she run away? Did the worst thing possible happen? Or did 21-year-old Ronnie get tired of Anna? Tired of her meddling and pressing, always wanting to be there and help, sometimes a little too much. From Tel Aviv’s underworld of nightclubs, drug dealers, and prostitutes to the beauty and mysteries of India, Anna goes on a fascinating journey, following clues and threads of information, alongside an adventurous rescuer, all while getting help from friends and a variety of characters she had never met before. Anna is desperate to discover the fate of her younger daughter. While she realizes that maybe she didn’t know her daughter as well as she thought, what awaits her is the greatest natural disaster of our time: a tsunami.
