It felt like a breath of fresh air to read a story set before it was possible to locate someone at the click of a mouse. Sarah turns detective to try and find out what happened to David, and, as David did before her, uses the good old-fashioned telephone directory and records kept on microfiche. Her research leads her to locate long-lost family members, and she uncovers far more than she'd bargained for.
Sarah is an interesting character. She's a kind-hearted and loving person, although there is something prim and reserved in her manner. The author has created a thoroughly realistic individual who readers will feel a connection with. Sarah's relationships with her brother, Robert, her daughter, Kate, and particularly with Tom are described well.
This book has clearly been carefully plotted. The twists are good, but perhaps a little too obviously signalled in places. The strong Glaswegian accents in some of the later scenes are very entertaining, and make these characters come alive.
Some books shout their story at you, this one tells its story with an assured voice that doesn't need to shout. I'd like to read more by this author.
