    When Eve Duncan gave birth to her daughter, she experienced a love she never knew existed. Nothing would stand in the way of giving Bonnie a wonderful life - until the unthinkable happened and the seven-year-old vanished into thin air. Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape.

    I bought this audiobook based on the positive reviews and found myself being very disappointed.
    I think it was the dialogue that did it for me. It was repetitious, dull, and used in excess. Fast-forwarding 10-15 minutes at a time did not matter as the characters were still harping on about the same things over and over and over and over and over again.
    In short, I was bored by this book.

    Story

    Some people will find this novel boring and perhaps even confusing. I loved it for it's complex storyline and the way Kate Morton managed to bring all the events into a full circle towards the end. Some of the characters are annoying in their actions, but that made the story more 'real' to me.
    The narrator is wonderful.

    Perhaps not as intriguing as Gone Girl as it was a bit more predictable and the storyline not as intriguing. I still enjoyed it a great deal.

    A book that constantly made you question the narrators and their motives. Very intriguing as it gave a new spin to the the thriller/murder mystery genre.

    When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof, or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking - to save someone else's life.

    This novel captivated me from the very beginning; I loved everything about Harold and his journey. Some parts were a bit predictable but the lasting memories of this novel are only positive.
    It was an unexpected treasure to find - I will listen to it again.

    Story

    This is another novel I bought based on the good reviews and I was very much disappointed. The characters are unconvincing, the dialogue is mundane and the storyline predictable and silly.
    In my opinion it is nothing like Kate Morton or The Thirteenth Tale.
    The narrator was ok.
