Summary
"A poignant and thrilling love story about one woman's decade-long search to reconnect with the love of her life who disappeared without a trace--a stirring and heartfelt page-turner from the critically acclaimed author of The Silent Treatment. The straphangers of Ealing Broadway station are familiar with Mary O'Connor, the woman who appears every day to watch the droves of busy commuters. But Mary never asks anything from anyone. She only holds out a sign bearing a heartrending message: Come Home Jim. While others pass her by without a thought, Alice, a junior reporter at the Ealing Bugle, asks Mary to tell her story. Many years ago, Mary met the charming and romantic Jim Whitnell. She was certain she'd found her other half, until one day he vanished without any explanation. But Mary believes that Jim isn't a cad, that he truly loved her and will return--especially because she's recently received grainy phone calls from him saying he misses her. Touched but also suspicious, Alice quietly begins her own investigation into Jim's disappearance, unraveling a decade-long story filled with desire, heartbreak, and hope. With Greaves's signature warmth and charm, Anywhere for You is a romantic and immensely moving novel about the enduring power of love and finding happiness in unexpected places."--provided by publisher.

Summary
Forced to choose between abortion or adoption, Olivia Carson's younger sister, Lily, runs away from home. Sixteen and pregnant, she never returns. But she writes. Once a year, Lily mails a picture of her son, Josh, to Olivia until his thirteenth year. Then it's Josh himself who arrives at Olivia's house, alone, terrified, and in possession of a notarized declaration from Lily. It begins, "In the event I go missing..." Josh has difficulty talking. He can't read or write, but he's a prolific artist, exhibiting skill beyond his age. His drawings are as detailed as they are horrific. Olivia soon realizes Josh's artwork tells a story. There's more to his arrival and to Lily's untimely disappearance than it seems. Using the drawings as a road map, Olivia traces Josh's path back to his mom. Each drawing sheds light on Lily's past and reveals a darkness that forces Olivia to question everything she thought she knew about her family.
