it was amazing

I have been enraptured and captured within the confines of this read.
It's grief, its loss of a child, where is she? who knows, who can help?

The accused
The facts, the loopholes.

We have Hope, the little girl missing, her childish voice that beckons you as you read. Her voice pityingly real wanting her family. Where is she? It's dark. She's lonely.

Her Mother, her anguish while she struggles to also look after Hopes little sister.

The Father who goes in search for his daughter, his first born.

It was poignant at times both from the parents point of view and from Hopes scared little voice coming from the pitch blackness she endured.

I was on tender hooks throughout. Will she be found? Won't she?
Whose responsibility is this, did the Mum act unwisely allowing a six year old to go to the shop?

The plot in this book is pure genius!
I didn't know what the ending had in store for any of these characters, let alone Hope.

I am so glad that I was gifted this book to read.

Highly recommended
