Product Description

Review

It's highly readable and is written with wisdom and compassion (Kate Saunders THE TIMES)

Dan is a subtle study; his vulnerability, his innocence, his resourceful intelligence and his dawning moral sense are wonderfully convincing (Charlotte Moore DAILY TELEGRAPH)

This easy-to-read tale is moving and poignant (STAR MAGAZINE)

Billington explores the difficulties of growing up and growing older with exquisite attention to detail (SHE)

Sacrifice... combined with the suggestion that through suffering Eve, Max and Martha are brought to a state of greater love, understanding and honesty, is really the moral heart of the novel (Diana Hendry THE SPECTATOR)

a well-wrought, honest book that is generous with its insights and tender in all the right places. (Jane Housham DAILY EXPRESS)

Billington keeps the tension rising, and it all feels horribly believable (Lucy Atkins SUNDAY TIMES)

Tautly written and well paced, this is a very readable novel about a difficult and all too common situation (GOOD BOOK GUIDE) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The disappearance of a teenage boy tears a family apart in this poignant, highly topical and searching story.

I believe Rachel Billington to be a well respected author, but sad to say I did not enjoy this book.
I found it to be a dragging rather tedious story. The story really echoed much of what can be read in our daily newspapers, about unhappy children absconding. However,whereas I can feel concern for those families, the characters in this book, weren't very likeable.
Might try another of Rachel's titles, though as I understand many people enjoy her books.
