    Fear the Past

    I cannot get into a book that has bizarre occult groups that put their so called "family" beliefs about individuality. Most of the characters were ones that most would not want to meet. A missing 2 year old in 1990 Manson, Kentucky is located in Australia 28 years later. Events unfold to discover who took Sammy Went (now Kim) and the reasons used to justify this abduction. The turmoil that now Kim must live through is told alternating with the sequence of events from the past. Resolution at the end was acceptable but it was slow in coming. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    A psychological thriller had me glued to the pages

    I read Mr. White's debut novel, The Nowhere Child and loved it so I was very excited to see he had another release coming out. The Wife and the Widow drew me in from the first page and had me glued to the pages all the way to the end. I had so many questions and thoughts while I was reading. I really didn't accomplish much of anything else while I was engrossed in this book. Mr. White does a great job of leading the reader through these two women's lives. I really thought I was following along really well, completely invested in what was going on with these two women and their lives. I was invested in what was transpiring in the story, following the story and the details of what was happening, the twists and turns taking place, thinking I was figuring out exactly what was going on with Kate's (the widow) husband and how Abby's (the wife) husband played into it all. Then I got to this twist and was Gobsmacked that I didn't figure it out! Initially I thought the story was going to go in another direction based on something Kate's husband said in the beginning: If we don't talk about the monsters in this world, we won't be ready for them when they jump out from under the bed. Add in the prologue and my mind went in a totally different direction. But Mr. White surprised me with the story that rolled out on the pages. As I said in the beginning, I was glued to this book. I still have a few questions that I would love to have answers to, but I think they were left that way for the reader to form their own opinions. A very entertaining read, I can't wait to see what Mr. White brings us next! Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced review copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    Holy twists and turns

    Holy twists and turns. A 2-year-old goes missing and a brother never gives up hope that she will be found. He follows clues, hunts people down, and questions everything until he follows the right path and meets Kim Leamy who ends up being his long-lost sister Sammy. That is just the beginning. Kim returns to the US after living with her family in Australia and the lies begin to unravel. The truth starts to come out but what she learns doesn’t even seem real. This is a book where there are good guys and bad guys. Sometimes the lines are blurred and I was not always sure that I was getting the entire truth from anyone. I doubted so many stories, I wanted to disbelieve some that were the truth, and believed some that weren’t so true. With each piece of Kim’s life that falls into place, another puzzle comes to light. Who took her? Why did they take her? Oh My Gosh…. I was so enthralled with Christian White’s book. I couldn’t stop reading, I kept guessing, I kept putting pieces together hoping that what I was figuring out couldn’t be what really happens. Pick up this book, read this story. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good suspense novel that is full of twists and turns.
