Cracks In The Sidewalk
A heart-wrenching reminder of how fragile relationships can be…
Claire is a wife, a mother, a grandmother. Her only daughter is gravely ill.
Her son-in-law is resentful and angry. Now her grandchildren are missing.
After years of writing letters, hoping to find the children, hoping to bring them back, Claire receives a reply…a dog-eared gray envelope is stuffed into her mailbox, but will it bring hope or simply put an end to the waiting?
Cracks in the Sidewalk is based on a true story brought to light through extensive interviews with the grandparents.

“Cracks in the Sidewalk is a heart-wrenching story but one of love, devotion and forgiveness. For Elizabeth’s children and her mother it is also a story of miracles and overcoming the obstacles life puts in your way.”
“A moving, emotional story…when I read this book I felt so moved, I was crying at the end. The writing flowed beautifully and the depth of characters kept me turning the pages.”
“Cracks in the Sidewalk is a drama about humans at their best and at their worst; this is where Bette Lee Crosby’s extraordinary writing skills come in. She has penned a multi-dimensional scenario that should be read not only for entertainment but also to see how much, love, gentleness, and humanity matter.”
