There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The first few chapters were the best in terms of getting my attention, but on the whole, the entire book was extremely choppy. I actually don't mind the constantly changing viewpoints since you learn how other people in the story feel, but again, it could been portrayed much better with "showing" rather than "telling". The last 1/4 or so just jumped from one implausible event to the next and that's where I really lost interest. I just started skimming to see how it ended rather than really reading at that point. I got tired of the characters almost whining about "where did I go wrong" and again, as one other reviewer said, Abby's (the sister's) constant ability to make everything about herself despite her claiming to be doing everything for her sister. Again, I understand you've all been through a terribly traumatic even, but do you really think a number of your decisions were the right ones given that you are supposedly rational adults? Mom thinking she DESERVES to take the married sheriff away from his wife and family after "everything she's been through in her life" and it's OK because she and her husband were having marital problems before her daughter was kidnapped in the first place. WTF??? Not exactly the rational thinking of an adult human being or a supposedly loving mother and decent human being, but it explains a lot of the other decisions all of them made throughout the book. There was a lot of juvenile thinking displayed by all the adults throughout the book which would be understandable from the main character who was taken when she was still a child of 16 herself, but not from the other supposed adults in the book.
I ended up giving this one 2 stars rather than 1 because I did enjoy the first half of the book reasonably well. Just lost patience with it by the end. Not sure I'd rush to get another book by this author.

In a change from the norm, this novel focuses on the aftermath of such a traumatic event, the effects of Lily’s abduction and her return on herself, her child and her family.
I loved this book! The characters were all flawed and at times I struggled to like any of them but the author shows why they respond the way they do so well that I empathised fully with their conflicts.
A well written and sympathetic treatment of a very difficult subject.
Sorry, I hate to leave negative reviews, but this just didn't work for me. 2.5 stars
Overall well written. I must say it kept me awake later than normal until it was finished over a few nights. A sure sign for me of approval.
I had high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed. I loved every aspect. From the character development through to how the story angled itself and flowed. I particularly loved that this story had so many levels. A life left behind. A life put on hold. Chances missed and opportunities expired. Yet would Lily go back and not be kidnapped? Meaning that she would have never had her daughter Sky, who she absolutely adores. Even more so you see how vulnerable Lily is from so many years of being abused and isolated - yet she is also strong, clever and highly manipulative in her own right. As you can probable tell, I could talk forever about this book.
I really do not want to say much more. I feel that if I did i may ruin the mammoth amount of surprises and twists. Just know that if you pick this book up you will be entertained for hours.
It reminds me of Room by Emma Donoghue (mother escape abduction with child), but from multiple perspective and is more darker as you don’t see it from the child’s view.
I devoured the book. So easy to read and keep reading because it’s just so compelling. Recommend it.
