** spoiler alert ** This book left me feeling as if it was unfinished. It just seemed to end in the middle. I also found the different ways of narrating a bit disconcerting at first, but it didn't really affect the reading.

The book leaves questions that aren't answered and while I think I know who took Ellie, you aren't really told how he took her or if it was him for sure. Bernard mentions to Isabelle that he is divorced. Ellie was born after he got together for what I assume was one night with Isabelle. I assume he chose the name Agnes for Ellie because he had a birth certificate for his daughter that drowned, but I'm also assuming that she would have been at least 5 years older than Ellie.

There are just little details that aren't "wrapped up." I'm sorta hoping she writes a sequel, but then I'm not sure if there is enough for that. Like I said, it just seemed unfinished to me.

Andi I thought it was very clear that Bernard took her.

Licia I also felt it was unfinished. I wanted to know more about her kidnapping and her life.
