I've read a lot of Harlens books but this one wasn't like the others, it was kind of boring and repetitive.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives - but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to "Jane Doe" for another day, the woman renames herself "Water" for the tiny, hidden marking on her body - the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge....

Story line was fine. Female narrator's voice was difficult to hear with my minor hearing loss.

Despite a frantic search, little Lexie was never found, and Sarah was left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and go on the best she could. Then, one hot August night, Sarah comes home to hear the phone ringing. When she picks it up, a child's terrified voice whispers, "Mommy, help, come and get me . . ." The call is cut off, but not before Sarah's heart goes into overdrive.

The story was entertaining and had lots of twist, liked how I couldn't figure it out, the detectives weren't very good though...lol They should have looked into the wife more or at least her phone records especially her call right after the shooting??
I'll be looking forward to reading more books by this author!

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

I got this book based on the ratings and loved it! The narrators were excellent, from listening to them you could picture each character and the funny parts were so entertaining. Wish there were more like this one!
