    Emotionally charged

    Emotionally stirring story of motherhood & childhood. Spotting a child in an airport triggers childhood abuse memories in Sarah Walker, along with a longing to rescue this little girl named Emma. When a chance meeting reconnects Sarah with Emma, Sarah begins a series of decisions that change both of their lives. The moral dilemma with Sarah's actions provides an underlying tension. Includes book club discussion questions at the end. I volunteered to read an ARC from St. Martin's Press through Net Galley.

    Not Her Daughter

    In Not Her Daughter (a debut fiction book by Rea Frey) it takes a little while to get use to the rhythm of "During and Before" by the two main voices and points of view. Once into the story the pages fly by fast as the reader wants to know what happens next. I'm looking forward to Ms Frey's next story. I was given an early copy to review.

    Not her daughter

    A great story but sad for the parents. But what a beautiful life the Emmy was given after being kidnapped. Finally she got to feel what a young child should. Safe with a loving person.

    Riveting, affecting, and unique!

    Not Her Daughter is a thought-provoking, clever, tight thriller that highlights just how fine the line between criminal intent and morally acceptable behaviour can be when it comes to the protection of children. The writing is taut and emotive. The characters are complex, troubled, and authentic. And the plot told from dual points of view and alternating timelines, before-and-after the kidnapping, builds subtly to create tension and suspense as it unravels piece-by-piece all the motivations, actions, personalities, and relationships within it. Not Her Daughter at its core is a novel about family, relationships, secrets, parental abuse, abduction, and the lengths one will go to protect, care, and love a child. It’s expressive, absorbing, unnerving, and without a doubt an exceptional debut for Frey.
