-"Loved this book...Five stars don't come from me easily. Tugged at my heart!"-Kivey

-"The focus on a woman taken was a very classic ideal because it was set in a military arena. YOU have to read these books, but make sure that you have e box of tissues because you will need them." - Faybe

In VANISHED, Abby has married the man of her dreams. He rescued her, and he's the father of her child. Everything should be perfect, but she begins to relive her nightmare from when she was taken... and one night she disappears, leaving her children alone in the dead of night, her husband on a military ship halfway around the world.

But when Eric arrives home and the search begins, there are two disturbing questions: Was someone in the house? And how is it possible for Abby to simply vanish?

This is a follow up to Saved- it picks up a couple of years later. Abby has yet to deal with her past and turmoil ensues. Didn't like how eric handled the situation, but I could understand his instinctive reaction. The author shows how PTSD affects everyone, not just the oe person. Respectfully written. Would recommend this book.

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Vanished is the second book in The Saved Series by Lorhainne Eckhart. Living on military barracks, Abby and Eric are proud parents of a beautiful, healthy baby boy, Charlie, but Abby seems disinterested immediately after his birth. Having been rescued from Seyed Hossein – the man who had purchased her – when she was pregnant with her first child (Rachel), Abby had been nursing a lot of wounds, and had severe nightmares from what she had endured. Now married to Eric, Abby finds herself unable to cope with both of her children at the same time, often having moments of memory loss and seeing Rachel’s father (and her abuser), Hossein nearby. Finally, one night while Eric is at sea, Abby has a nightmare worse than any that had come before. She walks out the front door and vanishes, leaving the babies to fend for themselves. Eric rushes home from his post and is horrified to find furniture upturned, while neighbors tell him that they heard nothing and are caring for Charlie and Rachel. An officer of the NCIS, Terri, spends the next several months trying to help Eric discover the truth of what had really happened that night. Not realizing that Abby had been suffering from PTSD after her trauma with Rachel’s father, Eric needs to put the pieces together and discover what is real and what is not. As a domestic violence survivor, I was able to relate quite well to Abby and found Vanished to be gripping, disturbing and very realistic. People associated PTSD with returned soldiers, not realizing that women who have been severely abused over a period of time also suffer from this nightmarish mental illness. Lorhainne Eckhart has captured the symptoms and attempted recovery of Abby’s mind quite well. I flinched each time Abby had seen her ex nearby, with Lorhainne Eckhart’s writing style bringing every chapter to life in such detail. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an illness which is rarely talked about, yet this novel brings it to light and discusses it in detail, showing the inner turmoil and thoughts of both Eric and Abby alternatively. Some post traumatic battles never end, and I recommend Vanished to all readers aged 15 and over, in the hopes that PTSD and the journey inside the mind of a battered woman can be better understood.

Loved this book, but was not happy with Eric. He was the hero in Saved, but didn't do enough to protect his wife Abby. I can't believe he didn't know to get Abby help for PTSD,. All that said I still love this author and already purchased the next book Captured. mjw

The main plot is gritty and real. The subplot of the mini romance only took away from the depth of the story. The author did this with the first book to a lesser degree. The readers could care less about this.

Important: should read Saved before reading this story. To be clear, I rated this story based on the writing and the basic concept of the story. I didn't like the story itself and ended up reading the first bit then the last several chapters. The writing was excellent. This is the second part of a duo. The first part, Saved, really needs to be read before this one. Most of the characterization came from the first part and really this story didn't need to be written at all except for the fact it has a message to deliver and it is an important one. After traumatic events such as what Abby endured, help is needed to come to terms with it, professional help. It is shows the measure of strength to understand and follow through on that. I could not read much of this story due to where I am at. I do not do well reading about someones descent and walk through mental anguish. There is more but I will leave you to discover this on your own. I liked the final resolution it was very well portrayed. If you have read Saved, I would recommend this story based on the above review but not for anyone under 18+ and mature. This is due to the mature nature of the subjects involved.
