All families know the fear of loosing a child or a husband/parent, and this book centers on that fear. This book realistically demonstrates the effects that tragedies have on the ones left behind. Herman builds realistic characters that allow the readers to empathize with their feelings and understand their reactions, while delivering a great mystery story. This is definitely a great example of a YA novel that engrosses and uplifts those who read it, but it appeals to readers of all ages with great suspense, too.
I won a copy of this book from Mary Vee's "Let's Talk" website. It is even better than I expected. Kathy Herman makes you fall in love with her characters as you bite your nails or cry along with them. There are lessons of faith, as well as, suspense and even some romance. I devoured this book. I could not turn the pages fast enough.
This book takes you on a wonderfully suspenseful journey through blind faith. It really shows what can happen when we put our trust in God to help us through difficult times in our lives. It also shows the human side of being able to let go and let God take control. The characters just draw you in and take hold...you have to keep turning the pages!!
I had not read any of Kathy Herman's books before. I have already added her next 2 books of the triology to my to be read list. The story revolved around the disappearance of a husband and little girl five years ago. The story delves into the emotions and tests of faith that occur during those 5 years in trying to determine what happened to the two of them( whether they are alive or dead). The story has so many twists and turns it keeps you on your toes with what is happening.
I recieved a copy of the book from bookfun to review for my honest opinion.
Over the past few years I have read several books by Kathy Herman. Her newest book is called Not by Sight. I was looking forward to reading this first book in the Ozark Mountain Trilogy, and once I started reading I did not want to stop.
Abby Cummings and her family have mourned the disappearance of her Dad Micah and little sister Riley Jo for the past five years. They seem to have just vanished. One day Abby thinks she sees a little girl in town who has an amazing resemblance to her baby sister. Her family dismisses her feelings and thinks she is probably imagining things as she has done in the past. Her best friend Jay is willing to help her try to find the little girl again to determine if it is really Riley Jo. Then she starts getting mysterious phone call warning her against continuing her search. Does someone know what happened to Micah and Riley Jo? Will Abby and Jay be able to figure it out?
There are many twists and turns that keep you reading. This may just be my favorite book by this author so far, and I really look forward to the next book! I would also add that she has chosen a beautiful setting for this series. If you enjoy mysteries, be sure to check out this book and author.
I received the latest book in the mail recently from the author. Thank you for sending it to me!
