Overview

Every parent's worst nightmare...

Nine years ago, Molly Tanner witnessed a young girl's abduction in the busy city of Philadelphia, shifting her occasional clairvoyance into overdrive. Two days later, the girl's body was found, and Molly's life fell apart. Consumed by guilt for not acting upon her visions, and on the brink of losing her family, Molly escaped the torturous reminders in the city, fleeing to the safety of the close-knit rural community of Boyds, Maryland.

Molly's life is back on track, her son has begun college, and she and her husband have finally rekindled their relationship. Their fresh start is shattered when a seven-year-old girl disappears from a local park near Molly's home. Unable to turn her back on another child and troubled by memories of the past, Molly sets out to find her, jeopardizing the marriage she'd fought so hard to hold together. While unearthing clues and struggling to decipher her visions, Molly discovers another side of Boyds, where the residents--and the land itself--hold potentially lethal secrets, and exposes another side of her husband, one that threatens to tear them apart.

Wow the authors friends must have wrote all the positive reviews. The story was ok but the characters are so shallow and the motivation to do what they do is really ridiculous. The anti climax was tedious and i just couldnt wait for it to end.

This book is pretty good but I would not have purchased it if I had paid closer attention to the subject matter. I don't believe in psychics and that is what this book is about. However it is very well written and I'm interested to find out how it ends. If you like tales with psychics in them you will really enjoy it.

I found this book to be very poorly written although the storyline had good potential. I finished reading it only because I hate to start something and not finish it.
