Description

"Take my hand, little one."

Fran finds her standing by the swings. A little girl, Esther, no older than seven years old, by herself in the dead of night, her pretty but old-fashioned yellow dress covered in grass stains and her hair dishevelled. She says she's waiting for Father, and that strikes Fran as particularly odd. 

After Esther is reunited with her family, Fran can't stop thinking about this pious child whose imaginary friend is God. Fran's instincts tell her something is very wrong. Why does Esther keep running away from home, and how did she get that bruise on her leg? 

Fran's husband warns her not to get too close, but one morning, Esther and her family disappear. Where did they go? Why did they leave their furniture behind? 

Fran knows in her gut that something terrible is going to happen to that child, and she can't stand by while it happens. No matter the cost. 

After all, she found her. But can she save her?

DISAPPOINTING

This book was more of a memoir than a mystery. An apt title could have been "Fran's Obsession". From the begining I couldn't understand her motives, however, the end of the book explained it. All in all the whole book was too far fetched for me to believe the plot, more like a bad dream Fran was having.

Somewhat implausible

Esther as a 7 year old would not have had the maturity to behave as portrayed and it is totally unbelievable that a woman would arbitrarily uproot herself and travel to the wilds of Arizona to search for this adult woman and child I found this ultimately far fetched but will say that the narrator did an excellent job.

wtf did I just read?!

This is a very strange book and not well written. A woman gets on a plane to chase after neighbors that left without warning and leaves the country to find out why and ends up in a cult?! just weird. I've been impressed with this author in the past but not this time.

Sarah Denzil does it again!!!

Really liked how it ended. Realistic to a traumatic story and outcome. I need to read more books by this author.

Interesting

The book begins well enough. The ending is surprising & phenomenal. It's the in between. I almost didn't finish it. I reached a point where I didn't care about the characters. After awhile Fran's reason for hunting the Whitakers grows tiresome & isn't strong enough to go around the world traipsing after them.

I understand the surprise the author wanted to bring but I think she should've put some of the ending at the beginning to keep us reading. Or cut out a lot of the middle. The suicide of Noah does nothing for the story. It has no bearing what so ever & all that drama should've been edited out. You skip right through all that & never miss a thing in the story.

Because it's so bogged down in the middle I'd hesitate to get another book from this author. 13 hours is a lot of time to invest in what is about an 8 hour story. However, the surprise ending almost makes it worth it. She does an excellent job of concealing it. That is the reason I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 2. The ending is masterfully done.

Fizzled 3/4 of way in

This book started out very well. I liked the characters, and was enjoying the story. However, after the first half of the book, the story started to fizzle out. It became a chore to listen to it.

In merry old England we have the inhabitants of a small town where everyone knows everyone. Out of the blue, a young couple move in the neighbourhood. They have a little girl. The talk of the town of course focuses on 'Who are they, and what are they doing here?' When it's discovered that they are (GASP) Americans, one of their new neighbours becomes obsessed in finding out more.

Just to insert this quickly- the narrator tried her best at an American accent but truly failed miserably. My goodness. It was bad.

The young couple and their daughter live a very simple lifestyle and it's assumed they are Mennonite or Amish. However, when they disappear in the middle of the night, one nosey neighbour goes on a quest to find out where they've gone and why they've left.

This is the point where the story gets.. well... just stupid.

Disappointing..

Good read

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The twist towards the end was good. I didn’t see it coming.
