In the book, Rock named the toy horse Randy and made it a precious possession of the girl. Much of his story picks up where the news accounts end. He says he probably could have found out more real details about the girl and her father, Frank, but he didn’t want to.
Rock kicked off our Northwest Passages series last spring and starts this week of special rebroadcasts as well. Do you remember the story when it was in the news? Have you read My Abandonment, or any of his other novels about lives on the edge? Or have you read a different, new book based on the same story? Share your thoughts here.
