What I Thought About This Novel
I thought the story line of this book was believable. The characters in the novel seam real and its easy to relate to them in real life.
The plot of the story made it hard for me to put down this novel down, it has a very long climax. It made me feel sad and happy at the same time.
I like to read the prologue which had a terrifying flash back on the main character Lucy.
I must say the prologue of the novel has got to be the best attention- grabber I have ever come across. It made me want to read more just to find out what happens next.
However I think the novel dragged at times it comes with a titanic 584 pages but its a good read.
How difficult it is for them to live by each day not knowing where their child might be.
This book gave hope that a missing child can eventually be united with their family at times.
Overall this is a great novel which is well written and I enjoyed reading it.
I recommend this book anyone who likes reading Susan Lewis novels and to anyone who like to read a good read where on a long holiday or in the comfort of your own home.
I also read Never Say Goodbye written by the same author and I gave the review of the novel here.
I really like the style Susan Lewis uses to write her novel. She makes is easy for the reader to related with the characters.
Her story lines and plots look real and you would think they are based on true stories.
Can’t wait to read more of her novels.
Over to you…
