This story had a lot more depth to it than I expected. It was a fantastic read that made me really feel for the characters, even the father who kidnapped Sophie. This wasn’t a clear-cut kidnapping; there was a lot more to it, and most people did not understand.
I liked that the book had the father’s point of view from the past and Sophie telling the story in the present, while also referring to past events. I really liked getting to know both characters and getting a different understanding than I thought I would have when I started this book. I thought I would hate the kidnapper, but it wasn’t that simple. I also didn’t expect what was found out in the end, even though I should have figured it out with the clues in the book. There was foreshadowing, which was used well; I just didn’t think about it deeply enough. I liked that I didn’t figure it out, though, because it was more of a mystery that way.
The author had a wonderful use of language and created vivid images. I liked how easy it was to picture the scenes in my head, making the story even more enjoyable.
I received this book from Tribute Books for review.
