I do not have a preference in regards to recommending this book.
I switched between reading and audiobook while traveling so my husband heard some of it. Although he missed chunks, he was able to keep up because it droned on. We both grew frustrated with the overuse of the word "gaslighting".
At one point, I did an internet search to find spoilers just so I didn't have to continue reading to find the antagonists. No luck.
The author includes symptoms consistent with mental illness through a presentation of Ava's thought patterns, and this frustrates the reader because it prevents the reader from getting important information; however, that lack of information reflects the same frustration that Ava experiences, and the author uses this empathic technique to help the reader better understand the main character's frame of mind. However, the mindset that is intended to enhance the depiction of the main character's thoughts is a bit inconsistent in that it seems the recovering memories are limited in scope: only a few details in a given time period are remembered--but surely there are other things that happened during that missing time period that never get mentioned, events that would perhaps not be directly related to the mystery but which would help to validate the apparent memory issues. One major concern with this writing is that one aspect of a hallucination is not explained in the denoument; Ava questions throughout the story the reason she sees her son on the dock when the events from the original event are not consistent consistent with that particular location. Perhaps this is intended to be a symptom of the mental illness issues and have no other valid explanation, but this major mystery element is not clarified though aspects of other visual and audio hallucination are clarified as valid or imagined.
A good mystery involving a missing child, mental illness, small town mindsets, and dysfunctional family relationships, this book is recommended to anyone who has a few free consecutive hours to dedicate to reading. Once you start this book, you will not want to put it down.
