Happy two book post Tuesday! I am sharing what I’ve been reading today on my Show Us Your Books post and I am very excited about the two books I am sharing today. I am actually reading one of them right now and it’s good!
We are having a pretty good week. The weather hasn’t helped Jack’s baseball team very much with two postponed games Sunday and a very rainy practice yesterday. Hopefully the sunshine will take over for the rest of the week because he has a game, practice, game, practice, tournament weekend coming up. That means lots of walking and reading opportunities! Jeff and I will probably take turns going to the games so Luke doesn’t have to go to all of them. When we’re home, I’m finding myself staring at walls and spaces in our house trying to figure out where artwork should go but I’m not ready to put holes in the wall and make the commitment yet. Jeff’s ready to hang pictures but I’m not quite there yet.
There’s only been one time that Rose couldn’t stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.
Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be…dangerous.
When Rose discovers that she cannot get pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.
Fern’s mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of what families keep hidden.
Anna Hart is a seasoned missing persons detective in San Francisco with far too much knowledge of the darkest side of human nature. When tragedy strikes her personal life, Anna, desperate and numb, flees to the Northern California village of Mendocino to grieve. She lived there as a child with her beloved foster parents, and now she believes it might be the only place left for her. Yet the day she arrives, she learns that a local teenage girl has gone missing.
The crime feels frighteningly reminiscent of the most crucial time in Anna’s childhood, when the unsolved murder of a young girl touched Mendocino and changed the community forever. As past and present collide, Anna realizes that she has been led to this moment. The most difficult lessons of her life have given her insight into how victims come into contact with violent predators. As Anna becomes obsessed with saving the missing girl, she must accept that true courage means getting out of her own way and learning to let others in.
Weaving together actual cases of missing persons, trauma theory, and a hint of the metaphysical, this propulsive and deeply affecting novel tells a story of fate, necessary redemption, and what it takes, when the worst happens, to reclaim our lives—and our faith in one another.
**As always, the summaries come from the author or publisher because they know it best.**
