This book was well written and touched my heart as no book ever has before. I cried all the way through it and for that reason alone I doubt I will ever again read it, it's now imprinted on my soul, I recommend it to though with a strong constitution for tear jerking dramas.

Story focuses on a woman whose child is kidnapped. She goes through a lot and loses even more in the meantime. The older brother also goes through a lot - he's as much a victim as the kidnapped child is. Ending is very good and realistic.
As a mother, I thought she didn't express her feelings the same as I would have, but everybody has their own way of dealing with this type of thing...

I really felt that this book was very realistic. Of course, I've never been in the situation that this family has been in, but not everything in life turns out like roses and this book exposes some of that.

As usual, the book is immensely better than the movie. This is a must read.
