The characters in this book were easy to get to know and truly likeable. No matter how hard you looked there truly weren't any "bad guys" well except for HER (a man hungry lady with her eye on Peter) and she played such a minor role. The main people surrounding Emma were:
Mom- Megan who fell into the depths of despair when she took her eyes off her child for just a few minutes to take a phone call yet would never give up hoping to see Emma again even when it threatened her marriage and family.
Dad- Peter, who wasn't always the most loveable of guys, sometimes non-supportive to the point of almost cruelness, judgmental and apt to freely give ultimatums so he could go on and and continue to live some kind of life. Yet he truly was the rock of the family and in his way was doing his best to hold the family together.
Sister Hannah- a lovely young girl who tried to be an adult and take up the slack when her mom proved incapable after Emma disappeared long before she was ready to partly because she blamed herself for Emma's disappearance..
Sister Alexis- the middle sister who often felt ignored and honestly believed that she might as well have just disappeared on the day Emma did, she felt that invisible.Read more ›
Four year old Emma goes missing. Her family searches frantically for her but there are no leads. Now Megan, Emma's mother, sees her daughter in every child. More than once she has brought hardship on the family because of mistaken identity. Two years later, and the search is taking its toll on the entire family. Megan's husband and daughters feel like they've not only lost their little sister, but their mother too. But can Megan ever stop searching? And, if she does, will she miss her daughter's face in the crowd?
As a parent, this story stirred some of my deepest fears...the loss of a child. It is poignantly told and had me smiling at times and crying at others. If you enjoy stories about love and family, you will enjoy this story.
I am genuinely puzzled by a few different things:
1: I don't understand 99% of the 5-star reviews, but I don't want to be insulting to other people's reading preferences, so I'll leave it at that.
2: I don't understand how Emma disappeared exactly, or how Megan knew RIGHT AWAY that she had been kidnapped. I get that Dottie took her, but... how? Megan's in the kitchen suggesting in one breath that they play hopscotch (in the kitchen?) and in the next that they make lemonade (while they play hopscotch?), the phone rings, Hannah goes outside to get her hair band, the door slams, and by the time Megan gets off the phone, Emma's gone. Did Emma go outside with Hannah? After Hannah? Did Dottie come in? I'm so confused. Then Megan sees that Emma's not in the living room, Hannah says she's not upstairs, the screen door isn't locked, Emma's not in the driveway or yard, and "Megan screamed as loud as she could as tears streamed down her face. Emma was gone." Five stars for the super dramatic reaction to your child not being in the yard, zero stars for logic and plausibility.
3: How exactly did the detective track Emma down to Jack and Dottie's house? We know Megan brought him a blurry picture from the fair, and the next thing we know, he's knocking on the door of the farmhouse. Did someone warn him that Jack and Dottie were somehow suspicious? Did he recognize them from the picture? I don't understand how he got from Point A to Point B.
4: I don't understand half of the characters' relationships. Did Megan cheat on Peter with Detective Riley? Did Peter cheat on Megan with "Her"? If not, why the super-drama every time one of them communicated with a member of the opposite sex?Read more ›
