If only things had been different
It is the wrong time to get sick. Speeding down the highway on the way to work, her two little girls sleeping in the back seat, medical resident Claire Rawlings doesn’t have time for the nausea overtaking her. But as the world tilts sideways, she pulls into a gas station, runs to the bathroom, and passes out. When she wakes up minutes later, her car—and her daughters—are gone.
The police have no leads, and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere.
As hopeful and uplifting as it is devastating, Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by unthinkable tragedy, and the unexpected intersection of heartbreak and hope.
My own review :
As a mom of 2 young girls, this book was gut-wrenching. I was basically reading my worst nightmare come to life.
This book shows how a split-second decision that you really had no other choice but to make, can change your entire life. Interspersed with the heartbreak, we get little glimpses of hope and restoration.
I really enjoyed the web that this book wove. The character depth, and the way the title ends is, although devastating, also enjoyable to read. The unlikely friendship that were forged provided another layer to the story that offered rays of hope.
I could not stop reading this book. I would definitely recommend it.
