aBookList.com Summary

Troy Chance, a freelance writer living in the small town spots something falling from the ferry on Lake Camplain to Vermont. Without a second thought, Troy jumps into the water to check whether it’s human or the trash they throw away. To Troy’s surprise, it turns out a young boy shivering in the cold.

Cannot leave the boy alone, Troy decides to bring him to her house and later comes to know that the young boy named Paul, six years old and only speaks French and a little English, which is all the information about the boy Troy has. Does not give up, Troy takes her time to get close with Paul and her patience does help her a lot. According to Paul’s story, he and his mother are kidnapped and held in a room somewhere, and the kidnappers shot his mother.

Sensing that Paul’s case is somehow more complicated than it seems to be, Troy begins searching the information on the internet for her own investigation on Paul, his dead mother, his unknown father as well as the kidnappers and their plot. Digging deeper into the case, Troy ends up discovering something bigger and more serious than she has ever imagined.

Publisher’s Summary

“If I’d blinked, I would have missed it. But I didn’t, and I saw something fall from the rear deck of the opposite ferry: a small, wide-eyed human face, in one tiny frozen moment, as it plummeted toward the water.”

When she witnesses a small child tumbling from a ferry into Lake Champlain, Troy Chance dives in without thinking. Harrowing moments later, she bobs to the surface, pulling a terrified little boy with her. As the ferry disappears into the distance, she begins a bone-chilling swim nearly a mile to shore towing a tiny passenger. Surprisingly, he speaks only French. He’ll acknowledge that his name is Paul; otherwise, he’s resolutely mute.

Troy assumes that Paul’s frantic parents will be in touch with the police or the press. But what follows is a shocking and deafening silence. And Troy, a freelance writer, finds herself as fiercely determined to protect Paul as she is to find out what happened to him. She’ll need skill and courage to survive and protect her charge and herself.

Sara J. Henry’s powerful and compelling Learning to Swim will move and disturb listeners right up to its shattering conclusion.
