Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With a gentle, vivid pen, Meissner writes a thoughtful, emotionally charged exposition of friendship, tragedy, and the faulty beliefs that throw walls around our lives.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“In Meissner’s tightly woven mystery…little Jennifer is the daughter of a pair of free spirits, and she encourages Megan in a nascent rebellion against her parents. Or so Megan’s rigid mother, Trina, thinks, but is she too strict? How rebellious can first-graders be, anyhow? Before the reader can figure out which side to take, however, there is a startling development: Jennifer is kidnapped. And sixteen years will have to pass before a sober Megan will understand why.” Booklist (starred review)
“When your best friend disappears under tragic circumstances, how can you still believe in God—and have confidence in yourself?…Meissner chronicles the events leading up to Jen’s disappearance and the ripple effects of the kidnapping, which will affect Megan’s self-confidence, perception of romantic love, and trust in God through adulthood…Her characters are vivid creations, and there are good intergenerational moments between Megan and an elderly furniture upholsterer. Megan’s early platonic relationship with the home-schooled and ultra-polite David Christopoulos will play well with conservative Christian readers.” Publishers Weekly
