From the Author
Part of the excitement of having In Search of Lucy acquired by AmazonEncore after I self-published it was the chance to have it professionally edited. Thanks to all my early readers who gave great feedback in the initial reviews. I hope you all enjoy this new edition. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

The part of the story devoted to the drive to her sister's was too long and too detailed. Why even mention the kid they pick up if he's never mentioned again later in the story? It's a loose end. The car trouble, adding tension to the story could have been left in, but the kid's input as a mechanic was of very limited help, so could have totally been left out without hurting the story.
The quality of the writing needs work... it's not really awful, it's okay, but Fairchild could shift to more use of pronouns. Her use of names when pronouns would be perfectly clear is laborious to read. In the same vein, sometimes she includes a reference which isn't necessary for clarity...kind of like what an author will do when writing a trilogy to explain something that was included in another volume... but this wasn't a trilogy - so again, it's laborious to read.
Start to finish this book took me less then 24 hours. I was immersed in it's intriguing tale of hope, family, love, friendship and the healing of old emotional wounds from the first couple chapters until the very last page. This book could have been longer, in my opinion, and the romantic relationship between two of the characters seemed to build too quickly with not enough interactions to support it. The characters, however, were realistic and memorable. I felt very connected to them and to their backgrounds and emotions.
I feel like the story line was very touching, but there were some parts that weren't very exciting. Things were not that well explained. Although, the emotions and family relationships were very well felt through the words. I would definitely recommend this book to people who has a brother and sister, because this really makes you think about how much you really care about them. This book would also be really enjoyable for people who thinks they are wondering life meaninglessly, because you might learn a little something from Lucy.
Hope my review was helpful,
