I found myself most interested in Caleb's chapters. Trying to get into his head and understand why he did the things he did really kept me engrossed in the story. I even felt the concern for Caleb growing in ME as I was reading the story, it was a unique feeling. And oh, the breathtaking scenery the author describes through out the whole book is stunning, not to mention the wildlife that is found through out the story, well the scenery made it very easy to get swept away to Costa Rica with Caleb and his family.
Bottom line, Where You Can Find Me is not one of those happy, feel-good kind of stories. Caleb, and his family, went through hell. You can't recover from hell in just a few short months, no matter how long the book. Please, don't let that scare you though, Where You Can Find Me is a well written novel with characters that will draw you into their world and force you to care about those actions. Definitely worth the read!

This book was really good. I think though, to me, it left a lot to be said. I really wanted to know what happened to Caleb and did not understand why he had never tried to get back home. I liked the writing and enjoyed the characters a lot though. I felt that I was allowed only into parts of their thoughts though. I was not sure why Marlene chose to date the uncle rather than to fix her marriage with her children's father. I am not sure why no one ever made Caleb explain what happened to him and to talk about it. I also could not help but to feel that Lark was kind of left out in the left wing to fend for herself and to find herself on her own, which I did not like, nor did I think it was fair to her. The whole family seemed somewhat off kilter but the writing was so wonderful that I just had to finish the book. Even though I did not agree with the story or even understand it all, I loved the authors writing very much.
