Ten years ago she disappeared without a she's back.

On 31st December 1999, ten-year-old Amy Archer went missing from her local playground. Her body was never found and the lives of her parents, Beth and Brian, were torn apart. On the 10th anniversary of the disappearance, Beth is alone, still struggling with the enormity of her grief and the horror of not knowing the fate of her only child. But the fear and confusion have only just begun, and Beth's world is turned upside down when a stranger knocks on her door, claiming to know what happened to Amy.

Beth is introduced to a little girl who is the uncanny double of her missing daughter, who knows things that only Amy would remember: The name of her favourite toy, the place where she scratched her initials, what Beth likes for breakfast. But this can't be Amy, she hasn't aged a day...

Now Beth is forced to question everything she has ever believed in, and push her faith and her sanity to the limits, if she is to find out the truth about what happened to Amy.

A gripping tale about a child who disappears only to reappear ten years later apparently reincarnated in another girl. Well, that's the story at it's simplest but trust me things are not so straightforward!

It's a book that just begs to be discussed but while there's so much I'd like to say about it, to do so would spoil it for future readers.

Whether you believe in reincarnation or not this is a compelling read - well it had me up into the wee hours as I couldn't bear to put it down 'til I'd finished it!

5 out of 10

Review:-“up until half-way through this book I felt it was well-written and fairly believable but then big holes appeared in the plot. The extremely lengthy story dictated by Amy’s friend lasting 59 pages was annoying as to how it was written as well as horrifying to read. Some of the happenings in the book were very unlikely I think e.g the detail of the regression episode.
The story had a very unsatisfactory ending which I found confusing and annoying. I don’t think I’ll be looking for more titles by this author.

This book was left tucked inside the Visitors book 📚 at the entrance to the pub/restaurant. It was a hot, sunny day and I enjoyed a delicious roast beef lunch with my husband.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.  

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
