Thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, witnessed only by her younger sister. Her family was shattered, but managed to stick together, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night: the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. The family is ecstatic—but Anna, Julie’s mother, has whispers of doubts. She hates to face them. She cannot avoid them. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she begins a torturous search for the truth about the woman she desperately hopes is her daughter.
I both read and listened to this book. I purchased it from Amazon Kindle for $2.99 and added the audible version for $3.99.
This was a good book! I love this genre of thrillers. Thirteen year old Julie is kidnapped from her house. She returns to the home 8 years later. Julie's mother is contacted by a private detective who had originally worked the case, he plants the seed that this might not be her daughter.
The story is about Anna, the mother, searching for the truth. Mixed throughout the book are stories of what was happening to Julie during her 8 year absence. I was surprised at the ending. And I loved it. Took me about 8 hours to both listen and read. It is only about 288 pages.
