Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a magnificent Charleston home, Jessie Rowland wants for nothing. Her rich, indulgent father has filled her room with expensive toys, but her frantically over-protective mother keeps her from having friends and never lets her out of her sight. As she grows into adulthood, her family's stifling possessiveness feeds her feelings of loss and isolation and fuels terrible nightmares from which she wakes screaming, night after night.At 19, she makes her escape to Washington, D.C., where no one knows her and where, as assistant to a prominent Texas senator, she is soon swept into a whirlwind marriage to his handsome son.But as the Senator's career collapses in scandal, her marriage turns ugly and abusive, triggering again her strange dreams of lost happiness.Finders Keepers is Jessie's story - the story of a child stolen from a loving home...of a woman lost in a life that is not her own...of a family shattered by an unspeakable crime. Jessie must rip the veil of every illusion before she can reclaim her life, and journey through a maze of heartbreak before she can find her way back to the place she can truly call home.

Disappointed

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I had to listen to the end...so I guess it was time well-spent.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The main plot of the story-a child being abducted-was quite thrilling. The multiple subplots made the story a convoluted mess!


Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed the narrator. She did the best she could with the repetitious and juvenile dialogue provided by the author.


Could you see Finders Keepers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

If this book were turned into a movie it would have to be directed by multiple people as there were entirely too many story lines combined into one.


Any additional comments?

I have read all of Fern Michaels' Sisterhood books and really enjoyed them. This book had a great premise, the original story line, but the author took the story on numerous tangents, veering away from the original plot. Then, in the end, the completion of the plots had to be tied-in and seemed rushed. As a matter of fact, the end of the book didn't even seem to be an end. It certainly wasn't a cliffhanger, just not thoroughly explained or described.

Hard to get into

Narrator is good at differentiating characters, but I didn't like her voice. This is a slow moving story, and I only recommend it if you've listened to seemingly everything else and it's on sale.
