A Delight To Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Losing Lucy (Kindle Edition)
it is not often a book comes along which contains no errors, no stereotyping, no formatting problems, and when that book is self published too, every praise must go to the author.
Losing Lucy uses the kidnap of a child to explore human relationships in depth and, in particular, how each of those relationships impinges on others. Truly no man is an island, as this book shows.
The characters are true to life, sympathetic, their personalities, their frailties, slowly uncovered as the search for the missing child goes on, while the 'mother' who has the baby struggles with her own inadequacies.
It ís a lovely book, there is no other way to describe it. The ending, whilst a surprise, seemed the perfect resolution to all the problems the book has explored.
Vivien Hampshire is an accomplished writer, you will not be disappointed by this book.
