There are some aspects of the novel that don’t seem realistic, like the idea that until Alan’s family misfortune when he’s in college, “nothing bad had ever happened to him,” and before the kidnapping of Alan and Arianna’s son Chase, Alan had “never done or said anything that hurt [Arianna’s] feelings,” though they’ve been together for years. Also, as both of Chase’s parents have been quite involved in raising him, and Chase’s first word was “Daddy,” it would seem that after his abduction, when he takes to asking for his “Mama,” he would ask for or at least mention his daddy at some point as well.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. I thought personally this was a great story.
I received a copy of the book for free in return for my honest review.
