equal parts a cautionary tale of what can result from ignoring mental illness, as well as an in-depth look at family dynamics and relationships, from the secrets we keep to the misunderstandings that cause strife. Gunnis takes us on this journey, keeping us guessing the whole way, and faithfully leads us to the end in such a way as to be bereft with the finish of this stunning piece of fiction.
This creepy gothic thriller was my first Ruth Ware novel and I look forward to more.
If, like me, you've read your fair share of psychological thrillers, then you will probably be able to figure out the ending of this read, but even so, seeing how the author lets everything play out is just so interesting, you won't care that you've already guessed the ending.
Insomnia and the tricks it will play on your mind, how far a woman might go to become a mother, possible child abduction, and the chilling feeling that someone is out to get you but you're not sure that it isn't just your mind playing tricks on you...the idea had so much potential.
This book actually reminded me a little bit of To Kill a Mockingbird – the writing, the Southern setting, the pacing, the court case, the prejudice, but particularly the court case.
Hauntingly beautiful, achingly tragic. That’s how I would describe the tale that Kate Morton wove for us in The Clockmaker’s Daughter.
Naomi Cottle has a talent for finding missing children with a sixth sense born of a past she cannot remember. It's been three years since the disappearance of Madison Culver, and the odds are not in her favor. Her parents' last hope remains with Naomi, as she strategically works her way through the mountainous forest of Washington state to bring Madison home, dead or alive.
