It’s finally Friday! YAH! I am linking up with Heather and Katie for Book Club Friday.
Today I am reviewing:
I actually won The Lost Daughter through a Goodreads’ Giveaways. Pretty awesome, hmm? I loved that I got a free book that looked interesting. More on that later.
Brooke O’Connor — elegant, self-possessed, and kind — has a happy marriage and a deeply loved young daughter. So her adamant refusal to have a second child confounds her husband, Sean. When Brooke’s high school boyfriend Alex — now divorced and mourning the death of his young son — unexpectedly resurfaces, Sean begins to suspect an affair. For fifteen years Brooke has kept a shameful secret from everyone she loves. Only Alex knows the truth that drove them apart. His reappearance now threatens the life she has so carefully constructed and fortified by denial. With her marriage — and her emotional equilibrium — at stake, Brooke must confront what she has been unwilling to face for so long.But the truth is not what Brooke believes it to be.
The Lost Daughter was predictable, but not in the way I was imagining. I do think that the author did a great job of threading the different stories together and getting to the end. It was a quick read and maybe not something I would normally read, but I did enjoy it for what it was. The characters were forgettable but I still liked the storyline for the most part.
I would rate this book at 3.5 out of 5 stars.
