Children of the Fog by Cheryl Kaye Tardif
It's the dying days of her marriage and author Sadie O'Connell is getting ready for her son Sam's sixth birthday. The party with his young friends seems to go well, but that is the last thing that does. it's all downhill afterwards. Sadie is hit with the trifacta of a failed marriage, alcoholism and the heartbreak of a missing child. Through all this, Sadie manages to hold herself together and deal with two of these issues. Ms. Tardif made her a believable character and mother. Philip was more absent, I felt I learnt little about him which is exactly as he was in their marriage.
This book left me feeling on edge an I had to keep putting it down until I was about half way through, and then I couldn't put it down. I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep without knowing how it all turned out. A good read for those who enjoy suspense with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. If you are squeamish about children being hurt, then select one of Cheryl's other novels.
