)-- About Jake
In 1946, Vera Evans is ostracised and thrown out by her family because she is pregnant. The stigma of illegitimacy dictates that she enters a charitable nursing home for unmarried women to have her baby. The home hides a dark secret that Vera wants to run from and with the help of a newfound friend she escapes its sinister confines and gives birth to a boy, whom she calls Jake.
When eleven-year-old Jake, a gentle, nature-loving country boy goes missing in the depth of winter, in a small rural community, a large-scale police search is launched. This captivating story describes the anguish of his parents and the subsequent arrest of Jake’s father, who is suspected by the police of having something to do with his disappearance, possible murder.
The extensive search for Jake in a wild rural location heightens everyone’s fears for the safety of the boy.
