Finding Mary Blaine Author:Jodi Thomas Beautiful Blaine Anderson, who lives in a posh Austin, Texas townhouse with her lawyer husband, Mark, seems to have it all. In reality, she's a timid trophy wife who's secretly terrified by city traffic, threatened by change and especially frightened that her possible pregnancy might further alienate the career driven Mark. — To find out if she r... more »eally is pregnant, Blaine visits a women's free clinic, but while she's there, the clinic is bombed in an apparent act of anti-abortion terrorism. Blaine soon realizes that the bombing was an unfathomable attempt by Mark's senior partner to kill her. Unable to contact her husband without endangering him, the injured and bewildered Blaine lives among the homeless, and in doing so confronts her fears as well as a relentless killer.
Thomas (The Widows of Wichita County, etc.) skillfully, and at times humorously, depicts the various street characters who assist Blaine, and she does an excellent job of portraying Mark's moving metamorphosis with the help of an irresistibly eccentric old lady neighbor from cold careerist to caring human being. By the book's end, the author has believably revitalized the dead-end relationship of two emotionally numbed people.« less
I wasn't planning on reading this book, but once I started, I couldn't put it down. A woman believed dead after a bombing in a medical clinic is actually alive and hiding on the streets from the people who want her dead. She meets many interesting people living as a homeless person and they all protect her and look after her. I enjoyed this book very much and am really glad I picked it up and started reading.
Beautifully written- intrigue, danger, romance and above all life changing events that make the main characters stop and think about what is really important to them. Excellent mystery- recommend this book.
