This book has two stories going at once. Its a sad read. Good, but sad. The very end (I'm talking the last two pages) was predictable. I'll say it is a good read, but not one of her best. Just too sad.
I love this book, I always give my beaten up copy to my friends when they ask for a book. I love the focus on Laurie and her ordeal, as well as how her kidnappers are portrayed. I did not except the big revelation, but the last four or so pages were very typical Clark.
