The Feathered Bone
The story is pretty deep. It deals with some upsetting issues such as kidnapping, depression and abuse, just to name a few, but it also focuses on overcoming the things that life throws your way. Just like a feather bone you can bend and not break. The trials we face in life do not have to define us, but they can make us stronger.
The story is set in New Orleans and Amanda is chaperoning her daughter's class on an outing. Amanda's daughter Ellie is best friends with Sarah and before the day is over Sarah disappears. Ellie blames herself and falls into a deep depression. Amanda's husband is nothing but a jerk and turns destructive when his wife and daughter are needing him most. As Amanda continues the search for Sarah, she leans on her faith to do what is best for her and her daughter.
The story line really is good, but it's the drawn out details that just drove me crazy. To each their own, but this is one author that I will steer clear from in the future.
