From Sarah’s perspective, she’s just a normal woman, yet, for some reason, she becomes the prey of a futuristic monster. Written in the early 1980s, the book depicts the emotional scars children feel when a parent leaves for no apparent reason. The book also was the New York Times Book Review: Book of the Year [1982].
