Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An excellent book through all its twists and turns, it fluctuates between childhood and now, eventually revealing a shocking and unexpected death. Itâs a tale of the past overshadowing the present, of loss, of reconciliation and hope all bound round a terrific plot. Highly recommended.

Comparison: Anita Shreve, Jodi Picoult, Christina Schwarz.

Synopsis

Unstolen by Wendy Jean

Bethany Fisherâs life has always been overshadowed by her missing brother. Four-year-old Michael was abducted when Bethany was a baby and no trace of him was ever found.


Twenty years later, Bethany is a college graduate and has a small son of her own. But her life is thrown into turmoil one evening when her mother follows a man home from the supermarket and savagely beats him to death. What could have made this mild, middle-aged woman suddenly snap?


Packing the emotional punch of The Lovely Bones, this powerful novel explores how the comforting lies we tell ourselves can be ultimately more destructive than confronting difficult truths.
