Damian

Melissa Mather, Author Franklin Watts $0 (386p) ISBN 978-0-531-15005-4
Kay Cunningham has endured lingering guilt over the accidental death of her son, David. Obsessively cherishing memories of David, she resents her husband Mike's enrollment in a program sponsored by his ad agency to encourage sponsorship of needy foreign children. Mike enthusiastically corresponds with Damian Demetriou, a young Greek orphan, and Kay bristles when he decides they should visit the boy at his home in Lesbos. She grudgingly leaves for Greece, while Mike plans to follow later. On the plane, a passenger prattles about terrorist kidnappings. Then Damian's letters vanish from Kay's luggage. Mike mysteriously fails to arrive in Greece, and Kay soon has reason to fear that he has been abducted. Mather (Emilie engagingly describes the beauty of the Grecian landscape, but superficial characterizations and Kay's repetitive self-recriminations render the novel tiresome. (April)
