Finding Emma: A Book Review

About The Book:

Megan sees her daughter Emma everywhere. She’s the little girl standing in the supermarket, the child waiting for the swings at the playground, the girl with ice cream dripping down her face. But it’s never Emma.
Because Emma’s been missing for two years.
Unable to handle the constant heartache of all the false sightings, Megan’s husband threatens to walk away unless Megan can agree to accept Emma is gone. Megan’s life and marriage is crumbling all around her and she realizes she may have to do the thing she dreads most: move on.
When Megan takes a photo of a little girl with an elderly couple at the town fair, she believes it to be her missing daughter. Unable to let go, she sets in motion a sequence of events that could destroy both families lives.

My Review:

The biggest fear of a parent is losing a child. Whether to death, or in the case of this book, having them go missing. 

From the very first pages you are drawn into every parent's worst nightmare. Emotions are sure to run high as you read this book, you will definitely want some tissues nearby as you read.  The book had a very nice flow to it, and all the characters are wonderfully developed. One of my favorites was obviously Megan, as she never gave up on looking for her daughter. I could not put this book down, and read it in only two days, it was that good. I could visualize each scene in my head, and could see this book as a movie.

 I was excited to find out, via the author's website, that Steena Holmes is in the process of writing a sequel to this book, Emma's Secrets, and I can't wait to read about what happens to all the wonderful characters from Finding Emma. 

Finally, but most importantly, I love that fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of this book is being donated to the Missing Children Society of Canada, helping to reunite missing children with their loved ones!

If you are looking to read a great book this summer, look no further than Finding Emma!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
