Sarah Broadhurst's view...
I cannot recommend this author highly enough. She always tackles nutty social issues, high emotional topics but refrains from being overly sentimental. She lets the power of the plot speak for itself. This involves the kidnapping of a daughter from her mother by her father 28 years previously. The police have just caught up with him. The story unfolds in sections with each having a chapter from the view point of a different character. The result is remarkable.

Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own Search and Rescue bloodhound - which she uses to find missing persons. But as she plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can`t recall. Then a policeman shows up at her door, arresting her father for the kidnap of a little girl. And Delia`s past and present fracture into little pieces.
VANISHING ACTS is a book about the very nature and power of memory. It explores what happens when the past we have been running from catches up to us, and questions who we trust to tell us the story of our lives before we are capable of remembering it ourselves.
ReviewsPicoult takes a red-hot topic and turns it into a gripping and thought-provoking novel Woman & Home The punch of a populist thriller Elle Enthralling Heat
