My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I would like to thank the author Karen Rose Smith for giving me this book for an honest review. I have to say that a book that makes me feel the emotions to where I am crying is an outstanding book to me. This book is about a family that has been torn apart by the disappearance of Lynnie, Clare being the older sister always felt that her parents held her responsible, both of her parents Max and Amanda blamed each other and it tore them apart as a family. Clare and her daughter Shara are both affected by the fallout as well. Neither of them communicate properly. There is also Joe their next door neighbor who would like to be more than a neighbor to Clare. I can only say I hope that this story is going to be continued in the next book, because I am emotionally invested and I want to know more about this family. Karen does a great job of writing about the emotional turmoil of families torn apart by abductions, and how it can take a long time for people to heal.
