There WERE some annoyances in it for me, though....the author kept losing the capital F in French unless she was referring to a manicure !! That greatly irritated me and there were odd missing words from sentences here and there like a or the. One sentence completely threw me, too, while Megan was photographing her family at the fair when it said "...she wanted to ensure the atmosphere of the grounds filled the room"....what room ??
I liked that she is donating some proceeds to the Missing Children Society of Canada-that's impressive, a really nice gesture.I found it very interesting what the police did with regards to the age progression photos of Emma. I wonder if that's a common idea as I've not heard of it.
I found Megan more than a little thoughtless at times and Peter got on my nerves a lot with his constant refrain of "we can't do this anymore". It got tiresome. I wasn't a fan of Dottie, either. While she clearly had her own issues I didn't think she was a nice person whereas Jack was my favourite of the book. He was just lovely and so was Emmie.
One line I totally agreed with-'Grandparents were there to spoil small children, not raise them'. I wish more kids understood this. Too many grandparents are having to raise their grandchildren these days while their kids do as they please and what THEY want. I think it's selfish so this resonated with me.
I look forward to knowing how things went in the aftermath of this instalment, I must say !
I think that I expected some kind of detective story before I started reading, which is exactly what I didn’t get. Instead, there is much more of a focus on how Megan feels, on how she copes (or rather doesn’t) with the loss of her daughter and the knock on effects this has on her family. The same is true of Jack and how he feels and responds to the secrets his wife reveals, a wife he loves very much and would do anything to protect.
At times, the writing was possibly a little simple but this didn’t stop me liking the book. I found myself completely drawn in, eager to turn the page and needing to know what happened next; how everything would turn out. I felt for all the characters – there are no “bad guys” in this story – and connected with the difficult decisions they were faced with. As a result, I would definitely recommend this book.
As a mother myself I can not ever imagine what someone must go through with something like this, the shock, devastation, heartbreak, trauma, anguish...all the feelings of helplessness...what can one say?
This book covers all that and more as we are taken through the story of one family's devastation as Emma goes missing. Megan, Emma's mother never loses hope that one day she will find her daughter against rising opposition from husband Peter, who wants to move on with their lives and I was really angry at him at certain points because how do you move on from something as tragic as this without the feeling you have failed some how to be the parent a child has every right to depend on for their wellbeing and safety?
The story covers this period of loss for all members of the family including Emma's 2 sisters and her grandparents so you get a sense of how each of them have dealt with this loss in their own way.
However the story has a very surprising but thoughtful ending and I was left with the feeling that with time and patience things would eventually turn around and Emma would once again take her rightful place in the family.
Thank you Steena for a very thought provoking book. Recommended reading not for the fainthearted.
