Description

In 1912 a four-year-old boy named Bobby Dunbar went missing in a swamp in Louisiana. Eight months later, he was found in the hands of a wandering handyman in Mississippi. In 2004, Bobby Dunbar's granddaughter discovered a secret beneath the legend of her grandfather's kidnapping, a secret whose revelation would divide her own family, bring redemption to another, and become the answer to a third family's century-old prayer.

I'd love to see this made into a movie that goes back and forth between the original event and Margaret discovering the truth

By no means are you a failure. What an awesome part of American history, and I'm glad Margaret was able to trace a legend to truth, and that makes her an American Hero.
