Publisher's Summary

Estelle Paradise wakes up in a hospital after being found near dead at the bottom of a ravine with a fragmented memory and a vague sense of loss. Then a terrifying reality sets in: her seven-month-old daughter, Mia, is missing. Frustrated and unable to explain her daughter's disappearance, Estelle begins a desperate search. But when the lack of evidence casts doubt on her story, Estelle becomes the number-one suspect in the eyes of the police and the media. As hope of reuniting with Mia becomes all she has left, Estelle will do anything to find answers: What has she done to her baby? And what has someone else done to her?

Nicely written but frustrating

The writing is lovely, but I found myself fast forwarding through parts that were just too aggravating or too obvious. There would be a buildup and it was so obvious what was about to happen I just got annoyed, and other times I could not understand the motivation of the main character. She would do things that were clearly going to lead to a problem but nothing in her narration made me relate to her motivation. It was like watching a house fly bump against a window pane just above the opening .

Started off promising, but then...

The book started off promising but then just became a jumble of stories. The plot was implausible and the ending just wasn't realistic. Also, the weird accents of the characters by the narrator did not add to the story. A very long listen with not a lot of reward.
