Contemporary womens fiction with a strong plot line that had me hooked from the back cover copy.

What has become of Jill? Kidnapped? Run away? Nervous breakdown? Lost? Dead? Three hundred pages of trying to find this woman who has simply disappeared off the face of the earth. Husband Mitch is such a character to feel for. What is he to do? Searching, passing clues to the police and each one is a dead end. Can one even imagine being in such a position?

I think the story does a good job of what that must feel like to have someone you love just disappear and you have no clue why. The story plays with great realism and yet still keeps our main characters likeable and as real as the people who might live next door.

The ending is heartbreaking. Its one you know is coming, you have a pretty good idea of what has happened after reading the entire book. And on one hand my heart was saddened, on the other I was grateful our characters had their answer.

The story is the struggles faced with every human life. Its a love story twined through as real life story as what might be ripped from the headlines. Its a story that has its moment of difficulty as I traversed the literary landscape, but one I walked closely by each of the characters.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through Litfuse for my copy to review.
