★★★★★ Surprise ending…engaging story.
I have to admit that I love stories that piece the story together using flashbacks. Bird does this and does it well. Tiny, seemingly inconsequential clues from the flashbacks move the story along quickly leaving the reader feeling like they are discovering two stories. By the end of the book, I cared as much for Ellen the child as I did Ellen the woman. Well done…great way to spend a morning of my Labor Day weekend.
★★★★★ Absolutely riveting!
This book grabbed me from the very beginning! I couldn’t put it down and devoured this book in two days. I needed to know the answer to this mystery. The characters came alive and I felt their pain, their frustration and shared their shock at the end. I highly recommend this book! I have found a new favorite author and can’t wait to see what Ms Wilson will come out with next!!
