    Contemporary Fiction - Psychological

    Finding Georgina by Colleen Faulkner What if: *Your toddler was taken from you fourteen years ago? *You believed she was dead but never truly gave up hoping she was not? *You believed you had found your child, now sixteen, and she did not at all resemble the memory of her you have kept alive? *You were faced with integrating you long-lost daughter back into a family with members that have changed – perhaps just as much she has? How would you cope? How would the father of your lost child cope? How would your other-daughter cope? How would your lost-daughter cope? This story is told from the viewpoints of *The mother: Harper *The unlost-sister: Josephine-Jojo *The lost-sister: Georgina-Lilla The emotions are raw, the characters are fully fleshed out, the issues are real, and the dynamics are difficult, the story is not easy reading. The author has done a good job of telling the “what if” story that should have a happy ending for all but makes the reader really look at “what if”… I had a bit of trouble with Harper…she seemed to be a needy, demanding, controlling sort of helicopter mother. I can see why, in some ways, Remy made the choices he did about his wife but can’t really figure out his reasoning or “needs” in relationship to the family he helped create. I found Jojo to be well portrayed as a somewhat rebellious teenager – not unexpected with Harper as her mother. I found Georgina-Lilla to be an emotionally mature and strong young woman who did her best when she found herself in a very difficult situation. I enjoyed peeking in on the sisters as they learned to know and deal with one another. Having no idea what a REAL family has to contend with if/when they are reconnected with a lost child that was taken so young and kept so many years I am unsure how realistic this story is but it did make me think and ponder and wonder just how I would react if I found myself in any one of the characters’ shoes. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
