The main character of this novel was someone I recognised to a certain degree..she was me! Busy mum, often forgetting the little things, sometimes forgetting quite big things, you know the feeling if you are a parent – the school trip you didnt sign the form for, the time you forgot you were supposed to pick them up at 2 and not 3 – we all have parenting faux pas without any real harm occurring. What if that wasnt the case though – what if just once, your mind wandered, and your friends daughter who was in your care, vanished. That is the heart aching problem that faces our heroine – Publicly blamed and ashamed she sets off on a journey to discover the truth and therein lies the plot for this terrifically written novel. A beautifully twisted tale, involving real life problems and concerns, and examining how well we really know the people around us, I was quickly absorbed into the heart of this community and quickly turning pages to discover what was going on. I detested at least two of the characters – nicely done to the author. Others I felt fiercely protective of, a sign of a great character novel. I didnt work out the truth – I was off on a completely different tangent – and I love it when that happens. Highly enjoyable I look forward to more from this author.
