Barbara Taylor Sissel
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
Abby Bennett expects to see her husband and daughter head off on their camping trip, have a week to herself, and then have a welcome back feast prepared for them the following weekend. Instead, she gets a cryptic call from her sobbing daughter a day later and knows something isn't right. The problem is Abby has no idea where Nick and Lindsey were going, if it wasn't their usual spot.
Flooding hit a Texan town, and its feared that Nick and Lindsey were swept up by flood waters. No one's found their car yet, and Abby keeps getting calls from someone who whispers or doesn't talk at all. Abby becomes the only person convinced that her family is out there somewhere and in desperate need of her help.
Evidence of Life is a very gripping, emotional story. I can't imagine the pain of losing both your husband or daughter in the blink of an eye. I was truly rooting for Abby and found myself annoyed by those around her who kept telling her to move on.
The story takes a few twists, but eventually I did get the overall picture and understood exactly what was going on, so the final few chapters were not a huge shock. That didn't detract from my enjoyment though. This is another powerful story by Barbara Taylor Sissel, and it's one readers shouldn't miss.
