When my husband vanished, I could never have imagined that finding him again would be worse than losing him…
Not long before our daughter’s wedding, my husband plans a trip away. I encourage him to go: I know he needs a break. I drive him to the airport, wrap my arms around him and kiss him goodbye, telling him I’ll see him soon.
Then he vanishes. And no one believes me when I say he would never have left us, not so cruelly, leaving our messages unread and our calls ignored.
I spend weeks in our empty house, surrounded by pictures of our family, desperately searching for answers. I go shopping with my daughter for her wedding dress, hoping beyond hope that he will come home in time to walk her down the aisle.
But when we find him, he doesn’t remember us – and he has done something I may never be able to forgive. I just want my husband back… but is he still the man I married?
This is my first book by this author and I have to say it’s always thrilling getting to know a new (to me anyway) author.
I normally don’t read blurbs before I start a book, but because I did the cover reveal for this one a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help seeing the first sentence while copying and pasting and I thought: ‘this is my kind of book’. And was it…?
Oh yes, it most certainly was, but sometimes I thought: ‘Really? How can you do that?’ But then, after having finished the book, I started to look at it from a different angle. It’s true when they say that every story has two sides, isn’t it?
When you are not aware of something, you act in the way you feels is best for you at that time, because what if it’s your only chance at happiness? You would grab it with both hands too, wouldn’t you?
You cannot chose when you fall in love or whom it will be with, but is love sometimes not being confused with attraction or something exciting which might fade away rather fast? And then there might only ‘what if’ left…
Life certainly is about taking chances, but be careful tough. You probably will hurt some people in the process and think twice before you throw something away. You might get it back or you might not.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked the twist the author added and I had strong doubts about the quality of the work the police forces did. 5 stars.
Thank you, Louise Voss and Bookouture
