Oprah Book Club® Selection, September 1996: The horror of losing a child is somehow made worse when the case goes unsolved for nearly a decade, reports Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist Jacquelyn Mitchard in this searing first novel. In it, 3-year-old Ben Cappadora is kidnapped from a hotel lobby where his mother is checking into her 15th high school reunion. His disappearance tears the family apart and invokes separate experiences of anguish, denial, and self-blame. Marital problems and delinquency in Ben's older brother (in charge of him the day of his kidnapping) ensue.

If it had been a recent book, I definitely would have spent more time discussing those particular issues and it probably would have knocked the book down a star.

The Deep End of the Ocean is a best-selling novel by Jacquelyn Mitchard, released in 1996. It is about an American middle class, suburban family that is torn apart when the youngest son is kidnapped and raised by a mentally ill woman, until he appears at the front doorstep of his real mother and asks if he can mow the lawn.

Tom, now, Reese thought, Tom wouldn’t have put a couch like this one in his garage. He concentrated on watching a spider pick delicately in and out of the canyons of the acoustical tile.

'Mitchard's novel... possesses a whitewater momentum nearly as dynamic as its emotional pull... beautifully timed, wrenchingly told...' - BOSTON GLOBE 'Riveting' - DETROIT FREE PRESS 'A blockbuster read... A universal tale of traumatic loss and its effects on individuals and families, an astute inquiry into the wellsprings of identity and a parable of redemption through suffering and love... Impossible to put down.' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY It's the moment every mother dreads - three-year-old Ben is gone, and no one can find him. Despite a police search that will turn into a nation-wide obsession, Ben has vanished, seemingly without a trace. His disappearance will leave Beth frozen on a knife-edge of suppressed agony for nine years and drive a shattering wedge through her marriage to Pat. Then something so unexpected happens, it changes everything that once seemed true or possible. And perhaps, only perhaps, it will give Beth what she thought was gone forever: a reason to live.

This book is a brilliant study of abduction. And there were so many times I wanted to slap the mother. I could never understand her sense of loss and guilt and it was this alone that allowed me to hold onto my compassion. She was certainly flawed and I enjoy flawed characters, many times these types of characters you will not entirely love. I am okay with that. It is so beautifullly crafted and the second half from the son's point of view (the one that was left behind to deal with all of this) saved this book from being mediocre and propelled it into a must read. It was wonderful, and I felt so deeply for him. This tragedy destroyed them, in so many ways and yes, the mother always seemed as if she were the only one suffering and that was her greatest crime. That she didn't love her family after that day, nor did she love herself.

The writing is wonderful, the pacing was a tad slow, it was longer than it needed to be, but not terribly so. I would recommend that if you wanted to explore childhood abduction without having to deal with stark abuse, sexual exploitation this one is much more safe. I do not need to read the details of what happens to these children. I never want to read that. I was pleased that I didn't have to.

Surprisingly there are characters (the investigating police officer) that are just as compelling as the main characters. I always appreciate well-written secondary characters.
Love this book! It takes you on a wide range of emotions and you don't know what to expect! Reading this book really made me value the people around me and reminded me to never take them for granted. Who knows what could happen today, tomorrow, etc? Life is really unpredictable.. Mitchard has made me really put life into perspective and through her work, I could feel the emotions that Beth was feeling. It would definitely be hell losing your very own child just when you look away for one second. You would live the rest of your life with regret which is heartbreaking. I was in denial through the whole story, but the obvious is that this incident is something that could happen to anyone and can be 100% realistic, not something impossible. I would recommend everyone to read this novel, it's a good read!
This book was decent and mostly kept me entertained but I felt like it went on forever and would never end. I am not sure if I will read the next book will probably take a break in between if I do. I would like to see what happens next but I'm not up for another long read that is being too drawn out.
I happened upon this book by purchasing the sequel to it first, No Time To Wave Goodbye. I ordered this one to read first and I'm glad I did. It was such a good book and nothing of what you would expect at the end. It would be a parent's worst nightmare to go through losing a child. But the worst is what the rest of the children go through. It affects the whole family and they are never the same. I cried thorough a lot of it. The sequel is not near as long but it is also good. I won't say it's as good but it's definitely worth reading. You won't be disappointed.
The child abduction in this book catches ones attention almost immediately. The characters are not only interesting, but conflicted in various ways. I truly enjoyed reading this book!
Jaquelyn Mitchard has managed to publish a novel in which every Mother can identify with. The main character, Beth, is a classic example of a person who should have never married and certainly should have not borne any children; but then many people are in this category. After marriage they automatically become "baby makers" with absolutely no idea if they are suited to the role. Then the kids arrive in quick succession and within 5 years; these women push out 3-4 or 5 kids...Wow now they are really screwed up and now the doctor intercedes with the "Anti depressants"...Thus we have a disfunctional family. This is sort of the type of family for Beth and her "long suffering" husband. Three kids of which the fave Ben three years old is kidnapped from a hotel lobby while Beth is attending her "high school" reunion. The older brother of course is blamed as he was responsible for keeping an eye on his little brother and feels guilty with Beth walking around in a zombie trance. I enjoyed this book and feel this is a parent's nightmare, loosing a three year old child. I will probably read this again in order to gain more insight into this character. By the way during all of this sorrow and stress she manages to have an ongoing affair with a former boyfriend from school days...well is guess everyone needs someone.
It moved a bit slowly at first but was so happy I kept reading! Loved it as a whole!
