Caroline Shipley was at a luxury hotel and spa complex in Mexico with her husband, Hunter, and their daughters Michelle and Samantha. The trip was Hunter’s idea, a way to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary in Mexico. Caroline and Hunter took turns checking on their sleeping daughters in the hotel room while they had dinner with their friends. When Caroline came back to the hotel room, she found that two-year-old, Samantha, was gone. Fifteen years later, Caroline’s marriage has fallen apart and her relationship with her older daughter, Michelle, has been difficult. One day, she receives a phone call. “I am Lili. I think my real name is Samantha. I think I’m your daughter.” Caroline tries to find out who Lili really is and what happened in Mexico fifteen years ago.
The story goes back and forth from the past to the present. It shows what Caroline goes through during those difficult fifteen years. The media picked it up as a sensational kidnapping, and people judge Caroline as an irresponsible mother, and even call her a murderer when she is out in public.
This child abduction story is told from the mother’s point of view and shows the devastating effects on a once happy family. If you are looking for a fast-paced, light psychological thriller, this could be a page turner.
