They compare this author to Jodi Picoult but I don’t think so. While Michelle started out strong in this book – the book quickly deteriorates to a long 300+ pages of trying to find the lost child (Emma) and flash backs to earlier days and a lot of photography facts and metaphores.
I found myself racing through the book just to get to the end. I wanted to know if they found Emma alive, dead… or never?
Overall I have to wonder if after reading such a well written book as The Other Boleyn Girl, perhaps this book was just not strong enough to follow so closely. I will be very interested next month to hear what the other girls in our Bookies Group have to say on this.
I would rate this a slightly below average book.
