Product Description

Review

"The novel assumes the tension of detective fiction... The mother-child detail is all painfully right. This is a nicely balanced account of marital breakdown in peculiarly difficult circumstances" (Sunday Times)

"Deborah Moggach captures brilliantly the basic incompatibilities and misunderstandings that arise when two people have little knowledge of each other's culture...both funny and moving" (Sunday Express)

"In Stolen she has created a likeable protagonist Marianne, naive, hedonistic, longing for a life beyond Ashford and her job at the Coach and Horses...The themes are those of an ambitious, dynamic novel... Absorbing...dramatic and disturbing" (Guardian) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

'A real page-turner' (Sunday Times), from the author of Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I've just re-read this 14 years after first buying it. The book tackles the serious subject of family abductions in a meaningful way, without letting it get too heavy. At the start of the book Marianne is not a sympathetic character, and though she becomes more so as it goes on, her selfishness still seems to motivate her more than an objective concern for her children. This makes her a very lifelike character, but takes away some of the anguish that the plot might otherwise make you feel.
However it was still a good read. As always Deborah Moggach writes fluently with an eye for day-to-day detail that makes her books feel close to reality.

This book takes you on a rollercoaster of many
emotions. At times it has you almost laughing
out loud but then the drama of the situation takes
over and you are equally sad knowing that one of
the main protagonists is going to lose out. It
keeps you guessing to the end - an excellent read.

I picked this up in my local library because it sounded interesting and i have come across a similar situation. This book is well written, it made me cry because of the mother unable to be with her own children and I think all mothers will find this book extremely touching. The last time a book made me cry was Message from Nam by Danielle Steel and I read that 15 years ago. Read it if you can.

Really enjoyed this, couldn't put it down. It's funny and fast paced, loved the scenes abroad. Would definitely recommend it.
