Kurzbeschreibung

A mother’s near-obsessive devotion to her missing daughter threatens to destroy more than one family.

Megan is the harried but happy stay-at-home mother of three little girls living in a small town. Her life implodes when her youngest daughter, Emma, disappears on her third birthday.

Two years later, Megan is preparing to commemorate Emma’s birthday and the anniversary of her kidnapping, compelled to keep her name alive in the minds of her community and her family. Her commitment to Emma, however, borderlines on obsession as she follows the families of little girls who look like the daughter she lost.

Her obsession with finding Emma has distanced Megan from both friends and family. Her two older daughters are resentful of her relentless and fruitless search for their sister, and her husband pleads with her to accept that Emma is gone so that the family can move on with their lives.

Meanwhile, in the same small town, Jack is beginning to question his wife’s secrecy about their adored granddaughter, Emmie. As Dottie slips into dementia and becomes increasingly protective over Emmie, he can’t help but wonder if there could be a dark secret that Dottie is keeping from him.

Jack and Megan’s worlds finally intersect at the town carnival, when Megan snaps a photograph of a little girl on her grandfather’s shoulders.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Emma- You Won't Be Sorry You Looked For Her 31. März 2012
Von Sweet Diva Reader (SDR) Marla - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Finding Emma was a truly outstanding, character driven story that lingers with you after you finish! I was a little worried about reading it because when the subject matter deals with something awful happening to small children, it isn't always a comfortable read for me. First thing I found was that this was a fictionalized account which instantly made it an easier read for me than if it had been a memoir type of story. I finished this book in one night.

The characters in this book were easy to get to know and truly likeable. No matter how hard you looked there truly weren't any "bad guys" well except for HER (a man hungry lady with her eye on Peter) and she played such a minor role. The main people surrounding Emma were:

Mom- Megan who fell into the depths of despair when she took her eyes off her child for just a few minutes to take a phone call yet would never give up hoping to see Emma again even when it threatened her marriage and family.

Dad- Peter, who wasn't always the most loveable of guys, sometimes non-supportive to the point of almost cruelness, judgmental and apt to freely give ultimatums so he could go on and and continue to live some kind of life. Yet he truly was the rock of the family and in his way was doing his best to hold the family together.

Sister Hannah- a lovely young girl who tried to be an adult and take up the slack when her mom proved incapable after Emma disappeared long before she was ready to partly because she blamed herself for Emma's disappearance..

Sister Alexis- the middle sister who often felt ignored and honestly believed that she might as well have just disappeared on the day Emma did, she felt that invisible.

Dottie (Grandma)- an older woman who upon finding out of the death of her only child snapped and began from that moment to have significant mental & memory loss issues from that day forward.

Jack (Papa)- Just a lovely older grandpa type man who loved his wife, loved his daughter & granddaughter and always tried to do the right thing, but dealing with the unthinkable nearly broke him.

Sherri- the neighbor with the heart of gold who decided to get involved and made the difference.

Detective Riley- the police officer who in the end was the one who believed, took a chance and found the answers.

The plot flowed well from the first page and although I did spot a few grammar/language issues like once peaked was used instead of peeked, they were few and far between and did not detract from the story for me.

If you like a suspenseful book where the lines often get blurred between the good & bad guys, take a chance on Finding Emma. You won't be sorry you looked for her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Heartwrenching 17. März 2012
Von Dara Snow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of this book.

Four year old Emma goes missing. Her family searches frantically for her but there are no leads. Now Megan, Emma's mother, sees her daughter in every child. More than once she has brought hardship on the family because of mistaken identity. Two years later, and the search is taking its toll on the entire family. Megan's husband and daughters feel like they've not only lost their little sister, but their mother too. But can Megan ever stop searching? And, if she does, will she miss her daughter's face in the crowd?

As a parent, this story stirred some of my deepest fears...the loss of a child. It is poignantly told and had me smiling at times and crying at others. If you enjoy stories about love and family, you will enjoy this story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A little close to home. 21. September 2012
Von JPCO - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Finding Emma was a hard read for me, not in its structure or prose, but in that I had a daughter abducted myself and it took 31 months to find her. The author had a keen insight into to the daily struggle to survive that this kind of tragedy has on a mother, and a family. I found it fascinating to contemplate the mind set of Emma. I found myself asking if that is what my daughter thought or felt. I had to finish the book, not only because I wanted to know the outcome, but out of respect for the characters of Emma's parents. So although it was a difficult book to read for me personally, it was a very good story. I hope that people reading it will have a new compassion for left behind families of abducted children, no matter the circumstance by which they were abducted, the daily torture is the same.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finding Emma is a Must Read 23. März 2012
Von Brenda Sinclair - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Even when Meagan Taylor begins to doubt her own sanity and her husband appears to be turning away from her, the young mother refuses to move on, seek closure, and accept the fact that she'll never see Emma again. But after two years of trying and failing at every means possible, is Meagan just fooling herself with wishful thinking?

Meagan Taylor's obsession with finding her daughter becomes the reader's obsession, too. I fell in love with the adorable Emma and found myself riveted to Ms. Holmes' every word. While I turned the pages, I kept hoping against all odds that the sweet little girl would find her way home. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll cheer Meagan's efforts right to the last page.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Genuinely puzzled 15. September 2012
Von L. Deal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Be warned - spoilers ahead.

I am genuinely puzzled by a few different things:

1: I don't understand 99% of the 5-star reviews, but I don't want to be insulting to other people's reading preferences, so I'll leave it at that.

2: I don't understand how Emma disappeared exactly, or how Megan knew RIGHT AWAY that she had been kidnapped. I get that Dottie took her, but... how? Megan's in the kitchen suggesting in one breath that they play hopscotch (in the kitchen?) and in the next that they make lemonade (while they play hopscotch?), the phone rings, Hannah goes outside to get her hair band, the door slams, and by the time Megan gets off the phone, Emma's gone. Did Emma go outside with Hannah? After Hannah? Did Dottie come in? I'm so confused. Then Megan sees that Emma's not in the living room, Hannah says she's not upstairs, the screen door isn't locked, Emma's not in the driveway or yard, and "Megan screamed as loud as she could as tears streamed down her face. Emma was gone." Five stars for the super dramatic reaction to your child not being in the yard, zero stars for logic and plausibility.

3: How exactly did the detective track Emma down to Jack and Dottie's house? We know Megan brought him a blurry picture from the fair, and the next thing we know, he's knocking on the door of the farmhouse. Did someone warn him that Jack and Dottie were somehow suspicious? Did he recognize them from the picture? I don't understand how he got from Point A to Point B.

4: I don't understand half of the characters' relationships. Did Megan cheat on Peter with Detective Riley? Did Peter cheat on Megan with "Her"? If not, why the super-drama every time one of them communicated with a member of the opposite sex?

The synopsis of this book sounded awesome - I was really looking forward to reading it. The grammar errors took me out of it quickly, and the handling of the plot was worse than the grammar. I love the concept of this book, but the actual book... not so much.
