This leads to some very dark, uncomfortable places. I needed to know what happened next. Torn between a mother fighting a losing battle and a staunch determination to find her lost daughter, never losing hope against all odds, this book pulls you in and keeps you immersed while you vie for Francine against all odds. Some bits were upsetting to read as Autumn and all the other girls have went through so much. If you don't know that she'll be leaving from London, you may say: I don't know where she is traveling from. I would love to write more about Autumn, the missing child, but I fear that I would give too much away by doing so.
Then a strange girl I imagined her as Luna lovegood turns up with some strange tales around a house and lots of girls and celebrities being involved. Francine is a bit flaky at the start of the book, booze has clearly taken over her life in a coping mechanism but she comes into her own, first with Lena and then in her search for her daughter. Little did I know that I would finish this book in one day! And, the question, how far would you go to get your child back? This is truly worthy of 5-stars - it is an amazing read! This is truly worthy of 5-stars - an amazing read! At the beginning of the book she is just how you imagine a mother with a missing child to be: broken, abusive and abusing, isolated, alone. I do recommend this book but feel I need to qualify it with the mention of the dark subject matter. I thought this was a really interesting read and the book is easy to follow which is a major plus. She has no idea who sent it or what it means, but she takes it to mean that Autumn is still alive.
Believing she is finally going to get her Autumn back she goes to show Will who isn't interested at all. Joan wants to take a look inside, but Torquil refuses to go in. Any theories as to what her dad does? My only real concern is that this book should come with a trigger warning as it contains a lot of graphic and disturbing descriptions of sexual abuse and sexual violence. Posts that are deemed low quality may be removed without notice. This novel takes every woman's worst nightmare and turns it into a waking reality, whilst emphasising just how far one woman will go in the name for the love of her child. This should have been a 'one sitting' read.
I would absolutely love it if S. Eventually the girl, when questioned, admits that she left a note. He has moved on with his life. One day she receives a hand written note which only says : I know where she is. I felt stuck, so I asked for something to help me understand. She has clung onto hope for so long, that when Lena turns up, she wants to disbelieve her, but knows deep down that what Lena is telling her is the truth. Not an easy read, at times, but never tedious, and certainly never predictable.
And Francine embarks on a journey fraught with danger and will accomplish things she never thought herself capable of. Thank you for the opportunity to read this book. Lena annoyed me but she was totally believable considering her situation. I felt Francine was an extraordinary character and truly showed how far a mother would go. As dark as this book was I really enjoyed it. Do yourself a favour lock the door, switch off your phone and be prepared for a rough ride of it. Torquil learns of the scheme and tries to talk Joan out of it, but she proves adamant and they have a blazing row.
Is she as innocent as she seems, or has she lost her sanity and using Francine for her own agenda? Unexpectedly she gets a mysterious message saying I know where she is. The story was well written and followed a good progression. It's as if the director spent the film's entire budget acquiring Lindsay Lohan and disregarded everything else. I could see it all unfolding before me as I read. Sometimes it's a matter of style, and you have to decide whether the stranded preposition makes the sentence more graceful or less. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from netgalley.
Uncovering horrific truths, Scandal, heartbreaking scenes, this story has it all. But she knows certain things that sway Francine to believe her. It's full of twists and turns and the horror and suspense is never-ending. Once started I didn't want to put it down, it has a terrific pace and doesn't slow for a second. I received a mysterious email from the publisher about I Know Where She Is and it totally caught my attention. This storyline would actually work really well as a film! I guess it would be strange if a woman dealing with the loss of her child was able to blithely move on but Caves seems to be able to make you root for her even though you probably wouldn't want to know her. She goes from barely coping to someone who is prepared to do whatever it takes.
A really creepy and intriguing ending that just surprised the hell out of me, keeping me on my toes till the final word of that final page. I suspect there may be a sequel to this novel and I will definitely seek that out. A mother's fight for her daughter is one of the strongest bonds and the author shows this between Francine and Autumn. The whole plot-line kept me hooked, there are some parts that make for uncomfortable reading so not for anyone of a sensitive nature but if you like your thrillers dark and realistic then this is for you. This book is pretty dark — more so than I originally anticipated.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. Francine lives alone and drinks neat vodka as a form of coping mechanism which leads you to believe that she is a functioning alcoholic. On the 10th anniversary of her disappearance Francine receives a hand written note. I think it will be,must be soon. It is simply gripping and I was astounding by the plot and the writing.
If anything I was worried I might be stuck with a stinker, but I needn't have fretted at all. Get prepared for a white-knuckle ride. While the story unfold with Francine wanting answers no matter what and acting impulsively, I could not stop reading as I wanted her to found peace.
