This book takes a situation where an upstanding businesswoman turns herself into a kidnapper and pulls it off. Brilliantly done, Rhea Frey. You told Sarah's story and Amy's story side by side giving us two distinct voices and showed us something about the damage that a mother's rejection can do for many years afterward. Would give much fodder for book group discussion -- with questions included to facilitate. Highly recommended!
