I borrowed this book free from Amazon's lending library. It has 4.5 stars and won some award as well, so I was excited to have access to such a "great" book free. It is about a family who's daughter/sister is kidnapped at age 3. The book is 2 years later. I'm a little dumbfounded by the hype. While not a bad book, it could not have been more predictable. The characters were not complex or interesting, I barely garnered sympathy for a mother who's child was kidnapped, the book was so lightweight in depth. Didn't do much for me, but I appear to be in the minority.
36yr old mom of 2 boys, 8 & 4, wife to John for 13 years, lover of wine, books, mini trips, beaches, kids clothes, and fun with friends. Together we 4 are trying to survive on a self employed finish carpenters salary in Michigan. Good times. If the last decade taught us anything it is to be present in the moment with our kids and our life and value the blessing of each other and sweet time.
