OMG! This was the most chilling tale I’ve read in recent times. Author Rea Frey was one heck of a writer who could keep me sitting on the knife’s edge wanting to know how the story would end. From the concept to its execution, I found myself reading the tale with bated breath.
The blurb pulled me in at first. Bec was visually impaired. She had lost her husband Chris a year back and her mother recently. She had a baby to look after with failing vision. A series of incidents happened to her which spooked her until one day she picked up her fussy baby and realized just by touch that it was not her child. Where was baby Jackson? And why had they left her with stranger baby?
With such a beginning, I was completely immersed into the life of Bec. She was etched so carefully. With her vision blurring each day, I couldn’t help empathizing with her condition, but I was so damn proud of her for never giving up. The author had etched a mother’s love so powerfully.
The entire plot line was so well pieced together that I too had a hard time trying to guess who could have pulled the nasty prank on her. The author added another twist to the story when the cops refuse to believe a blind mother. That really pulled my heartstrings and I was really enraged at the people who knew her, yet refused to believe her. It was now up to Bec to prove that she was not telling a lie and find her baby.
The story was fast paced, the writing smooth evoking so many emotions from me. Bec was a character who would stay with me for a long time. Her courage inspired me, her love for her child caused my heart to gush over her, and the way she battled her way to the truth made me admire her. The author truly gave me a book which made me forget the world over the afternoon.
A few niggles as some parts of the incidents that happened to her were not explained clearly. But those could be let go when I looked at the story in toto. A compelling read made which lured deeper into the story, all thanks to the main character.
