Publisher's Summary

For two years, Megan, Peter, and their two older daughters, Alexis and Hannah, dream of nothing but being reunited with the family’s youngest child, Emma, who was kidnapped just before her third birthday. When Emma is miraculously found living with an elderly couple just miles from the family’s home, they are hopeful that her return will heal the wounds her disappearance created.
But Emma is vastly different from the sunny toddler they remember. She barely remembers her parents or her older sisters. She is quiet and withdrawn, and, worst of all, longs for the very people who kidnapped her.
Megan is consumed with bitterness, while Peter works later and later nights in the company of his gorgeous business partner. And in the middle of everything, Megan’s best friend has become suddenly distant and secretive.
Then a chance encounter in town leads to a secret that changes everything again for Emma. And Peter must decide between the happiness of his youngest daughter and the trust of his family.

Too Dramatic!

Would you try another book from Steena Holmes and/or Kate Rudd?

Unlikely.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The premise was enticing but the over-the-top drama of the mother, Megan made it nearly unbearable. She was so ego driven and lacked empathy for others especially the her daughter who recently was returned to their family. The father was the voice of reason and the daughter wise beyond her years and the mother didn't deserve either of them. Her drama was not driven by the kidnapping or external events but her own sense of insecurity, lack of esteem and need for attention.

Any additional comments?

It wasn't a complete waste of time but I felt cheated. The only reason I continued listening because of the father and daughter's characters.

Deja vu

The story was good but the story line was extremely similar to another book that I have read. I couldn't help but wonder which story was written first. Overall, the story kept your interest and was pretty good. I would recommend.

sad story

I did enjoy this story and understand the mixture of emotions portrayed by all parties.
I think the narrative was well done.
