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.

Inhalt:
Es geht so schnell - man dreht sich um - plötzlich ist das Kind weg. Jeder, der Kinder hat, hat diesen Schreckmoment schon mal erlebt, da bin ich mir sicher, auch wenn er in den meisten Fällen gleich wieder vorbei ist.
Für Megan trifft das nicht zu - ihre ältere Tochter hat vergessen, die Eingangstür zu verschließen, und Emma ist wirklich weg.

Die Geschichte selbst spielt drei Jahre nach Emmas Verschwinden. Megan ist gezwungen, in ihrer Stadt das Andenken an ihre Tochter aufrecht zu erhalten, und kann dadurch selbst nie abschließen. Sie weiß in ihrem Inneren, dass Emma noch lebt - ihre Besessenheit in ihrer Suche allerdings stellt ihre Ehe und auch die Beziehung zu den beiden älteren Geschwistermädchen von Emma auf eine harte Probe.

In anderen Kapiteln erfährt man gleichzeitig, wie es Emma geht - sie lebt bei Jack und Dottie, die immer mehr in die Demenz abgleitet. Beide lieben das Mädchen abgöttisch, aber Dottie hält Geheimnisse vor Jack zurück, das spürt er, aus Angst jedoch fragt er nicht näher nach.

Meine Meinung:
Man weiß in diesem Roman also, dass es Emma gut geht, und muss nicht bis zum Ende des Buches bangen, ob sie noch gefunden wird oder nicht. Allerdings ist hier die Geschichte nichts desto weniger spannend, nur weil man das weiß. Denn die Frage ist - wie klärt sich alles auf?

Das muss man selbst lesen - mir hat dieses Buch sehr gut gefallen, es gab genug spannende Momente, und auch solche, die jede Person, die ein Kind hat, nachvollziehen kann - die Liebe und die Angst um ein Kind.

Ich fand den Roman keineswegs langatmig, er hat mich bis zur letzten Seite gut unterhalten, und auch das Ende war so gestaltet, dass es nicht unwirklich ist.

Alles in allem lesenswert!

This story is rather unreal and it was hard to believe the main story about how Emma went missing and where she went to.

However, it touches on worthy topics such as dementia and families falling apart and holding together and is quite a rounded story in its way.

Rather pretentious to include a series of questions for discussion at the end.

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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Overwrought drama 18. März 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While under her mother's supervision, three year old Emma disappears. Two years later Emma is still gone. Her Mother, Megan, hasn't been able to recover. She spends her time putting together "stranger danger" seminars for schools and organizing supervision for children who walk home. She also mistakes other little girls for Emma. Her husband, Peter, shames Megan for "seeing" Emma in other children. He wants Megan to focus on the present and their two other children. The novel quickly shifts and then alternates to the story of an elderly couple struggles to raise their granddaughter, Emme amongst the grandmother's declining health.

I am afraid I am in the minority on this one. I thought this book was only OK. I was expecting more of a mystery. Any mystery Holmes had, she gives away pretty quickly on in the story. There isn't really a plot other than waiting for the characters to uncover the "secret" that the reader already guessed. Holmes replaces suspense with repeated heart wrenching scenes illustrating the damage that Emma's kidnapping has afflicted on Megan's family. The story of a kidnapped child is pretty relatable for any parent, so the dozens of scenes underscoring the repercussions of this tragedy are unnecessary. I felt beat over the head with sad scenes. The marital tension seemed contrived and never fully fleshed out. A typical argument:

Peter: You need to move on from Emma's kidnapping!
Megan: I will never give up on Emma! (bursts into tears).

Ok, maybe that's a facile transcription of an argument. But they had multiple arguments to this effect and that's how they began to feel. I wanted to say: Megan, honey, if your husband's idea of being supportive is to encourage you to move past your daughter's tragic kidnapping while flirting with his attractive business partner, you may want to move past your marriage. I mean it's only been two years. But do try and acknowledge your other kids, just once and a while. He has a small point there.

Another thing that bothered me was several sub-plots that never went anywhere. I kept reading hoping they would go somewhere, but they didn't. I now see that maybe they will be picked up in the author's companion novella or the sequel. Inexplicably, I am tempted to purchase both of these? Maybe I am still hoping to uncover the novel I intended to read. AS of today, I have not purchased either.

Another note: I got a deal on the audio version via Whisphersync. The narrator baby talks Emma's lines. While I have no problem with a narrator who performs characters, I have never heard an adult do a good rendition of a small child's voice. This is a pet peeve of mine, and is so grating, if Emma had more lines, I would not have been able to listen to the audio version.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Precious Family, Sweet Children, a missing child, heartbreak, mystery, love, and heartache...READ the Book! 1. Mai 2017

Finding Emma by author Steena Holmes is another wonderful read! Once you start, you will not want to stop. You will be wanting to help find Emma! It is a story of family, human emotions, and a mystery.
When a child is abducted, a family is terrified, an if the child is not soon recovered, then a whole family suffers and can fall apart.
Megan is a mom who is devastated and haunted daily by the abduction of he toddler, Emma, from the front yard. Emma slipped outside on her own and was taken before her mom or two sisters realized what had happened. Megan's husband, Peter, is also hurt by Emma's disappearance, but he is a bit harsh with Megan. He admonishes her to stop thinking she sees Emma in the face of each young girl.
I won't post spoilers, but there is another family you will read about in this story. Your heart will hurt for both families. As read the book, I wondered how many missing children have been loved by more than one set of "parents" .
I loved the story, but was also sad when I finished. Read the book so you know why...

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.
4.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable read that will leave you missing the characters when it's over. 12. Mai 2015

I enjoyed the book so much I had to buy Emma's Secret immediately upon completion of Finding Emma because I just had to know how things turned out for everyone. The author did a spectacular job of making the characters real to me. I was fully invested in each of their lives and how they were affected by everything that took place. I felt the raw emotion at times and must admit, I shed a tear of two. I don't want to give any of the story away, but I must admit that I found the circumstances pertaining to Emma's disappearance and acclimation into her new home to be a bit far fetched. I just don't see things going down in real life the way they did in the book. That isn't meant as a negative point - it is fiction after all - just a point I wanted to mention.

I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with the characters and would definitely seek out other books by this author.
