No time to wave goodbye
No Time to Wave Goodbye by Jacquelyn MitchardNew York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard captured the heart of a nation with The Deep End of the Ocean, her celebrated debut novel about mother Beth Cappadora, a child kidnapped, a family in crisis. Now, in No Time to Wave Goodbye, the unforgettable Cappadoras are in peril once again, forced to confront an unimaginable evil.
It has been twenty-two years since Beth Cappadora’s three-year-old son Ben was abducted. By some miracle, he returned nine years later, and the family began to pick up the pieces of their lives. But their peace has always been fragile: Ben returned from the deep end as another child and has never felt entirely at ease with the family he was born into. Now the Cappadora children are grown: Ben is married with a baby girl, Kerry is studying to be an opera singer, and Vincent has emerged from his troubled adolescence as a fledgling filmmaker.
The subject of Vincent’s new documentary, “No Time to Wave Goodbye,” shakes Vincent’s unsuspecting family to the core; it focuses on five families caught in the tortuous web of never knowing the fate of their abducted children. Though Beth tries to stave off the torrent of buried emotions, she is left wondering if she and her family are fated to relive the past forever.
The film earns tremendous acclaim, but just as the Cappadoras are about to celebrate the culmination of Vincent’s artistic success, what Beth fears the most occurs, and the Cappadoras are cast back into the past, revisiting the worst moment of their lives–with only hours to find the truth that can save a life. High in a rugged California mountain range, their rescue becomes a desperate struggle for survival.
No Time to Wave Goodbye is Jacquelyn Mitchard at her best, a spellbinding novel about family loyalty, and love pushed to the limits of endurance.

Jacquelyn Mitchard's The Deep End of the Ocean was a justifiable smash, a well-drawn portrait of a family shattered by the disappearance of a child only to get him back nine years later. Lost-soul son Vincent has taken up filmmaking, and invites his family to the premiere of his documentary subject unknown at least to his mother, Beth Cappadora, whose relationship with Vincent has been rocky since Ben disappeared. The savvy reader will figure out quickly that Vincent's documentary is about lost children, and includes an interview with Ben, the little brother whose hand slipped out of Vincent's and into the clutches of a deranged woman who raised Ben as her own for nearly a decade. The real-life headlines of California kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard, returned to her family after 18 years, won't hurt interest in this book. But Mitchard, whose Deep End was Oprah Winfrey's first book club pick, doesn't need headlines to help sell her work. The Cappadoras remain a compelling clan, though this book doesn't do them justice. Deep End was a knowing, nuanced portrait of family, marriage and friendships tested by trauma.
Thank you! Now 25, Ben has married Eliza, adopted Bolivian daughter of Candy, the detective who helped investigate his disappearance. Ben and Eliza have a six-month-old daughter, Stella. Candy and Beth mobilize their forces, but police have no leads. Then a letter appears, penned in pretentious prose complete with Latin legalese, leading Vincent to recall the straitlaced lawyer in his documentary whose favorite daughter vanished at age The proliferation of characters may confuse readers, especially those unfamiliar with the earlier book, and a disproportionately large chunk of the narrative is devoted to exposition. The solution to the Stella puzzle is fairly obvious, while other mysteries—such as a plausible motive for the villain—go unplumbed.
