Linda Huber is one of my favorite authors as her books have that extra something. This too had suspense along with that, a touch of humanity, pathos, and an immeasurable longing for the mother and child to meet.

A road accident left Daria injured and semi conscious and her daughter Evie missing. On the other hand Margie found her daughter Bridie after a very, very long time. But all their lives were interconnected. Daria was heartbroken and Margie found a second shot at life. This was their story running parallel and finally, intersecting.

All the characters shared their pain with me. Human psyche and mental illness was well shown, but I didn’t like Daria’s husband at all. He could have been more supportive. The story moved in detail when friend and a single mother, Liane’s story was also added.

There was much to applaud in the book which evoked my emotions. The writing was lucid, flowed well. Daria’s pain could be well felt, and so did her guilt seep through. My mind felt so restless at how alone and isolated she was.

A prose which was slightly more emotive would have helped me love the book more. Overall, it was something different. An amalgamation of suspense and pain.

The heart couldn’t help but sympathize with the characters caught in their own turmoil. Life is just that…

A mother and daughter torn apart

An explosive accident on the way to Glasgow airport leaves Daria hurt, bereaved and confused. Her daughter has vanished without a trace and nobody is telling her what happened. Evie’s gone. That’s all. Gone. What does Daria have left to live for?

A mother and daughter reunited

Margie can’t believe it. Bridie is hurt. Bridie needs her. They manage to escape the smoke, the noise and the confusion. They are together, that’s all that matters. Everything will be better in the morning, Margie tells Bridie. And it will.

The bonds that never break

Will Daria ever be able to put the pieces of her tattered life back together after the loss of her daughter? Is it possible that things aren’t quite as they seem? Can the unimaginable turn out to be the truth?
