Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I always expect surprises from Jodi Picoult's books and 'Vanishing Acts' was no exception. A very enjoyable book. I had difficulty with some of the relationship responses that happened, it seemed unrealistic at times.
Pub. Date: November 2005
Synopsis: Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.
What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you've loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you've always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life as we know it might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; and how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.
