17 year old Sarabeth has seen her world completely turned upside down. Her father found religion and decided the family needed to leave everything behind to move to a farm outside of town so they could be closer to God. Sarabeth finds the expectations and constraints of life in Wisteria, Arkansas to be overbearing as it is, but then she finds out her parents are planning her marriage. Burdened with these thoughts, Sarabeth sets up their roadside produce stand for customers, but the customer that arrives has other plans. Sarabeth is found a week later abandoned by the roadside, and the police and her community have more questions than Sarabeth has answers.
Told in alternating chapters between the days before Sarabeth's abduction, and five years after the abduction, when she is now known as Sarah, this fast paced novel will have you turning pages at record speed. Being a native of Southwest Missouri, I found that the novel was well researched and resonating with me as being an authentic representation of the area. This was a five star read for me, but be prepared because you won't want to put it down.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
