Returning to life in her home town brings back all kind of memories–including Daisy’s disappearance when she was a young girl herself.

My Thoughts

Family; you can’t choose it but it marks your life forever.
This is a bitter story about family and love; difficult and dark, intriguing and tense; it will make you see your life in a different perspective.
This is a story told between two different timelines; the past with the young Eula and the present with Peyton. Eula had a poor and difficult childhood, but one day she decides that her future will be better and fights with all her strength to leave her past behind and have a successful future. But, is she better than her parents?
On the other side we have Peyton, the missing girl in 1997 that marked her life; she never met the girl, but that day something weird happened with her family… Did any of them have something to do with her disappearance? Returning home makes her try to discover the truth of what happened that day. But what will happen if what she discovers is something much worse? Of course you’ll have to read the book if you want to discover the truth!
This is a very interesting read; it is not easy to like Eula but you understand her as you discover her story. Also, I felt so sorry for Peyton and her family situation, she is a nice and brave woman that only needs a little bit of love and support in her life. 
I have to say that I liked this book; the twists and different characters in the story makes this book a surprise.
