Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her ability to tap into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she explores what happens when a young woman’s past—a past she didn’t even know she had—catches up to her just in time to threaten her future.

How do you recover the past when it was never yours to lose?

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her beloved, widowed father, 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…until a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret about herself that changes the world as she knows it—and threatens to jeopardize her future.

With Vanishing Acts, Jodi Picoult explores how life—as we know it—might not turn out the way we imagined; how the people we’ve loved and trusted can suddenly change before our very eyes; how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat. Once again, Picoult handles an astonishing and timely topic with understanding, insight, and compassion.

A common enough story. But when read from the multiply points of views of Picoult characters it takes on a whole new meaning. Gripping story however not as emotional as I have come to expect from Picoult. She still manages though to make me she'd tears in public at least once during this read. Enjoy a great read

A book dealing with the reality of child abductions & the moral versus legal implications. You become so immersed in the characters you know legally the crime was wrong but morally you can understand why it was committed. The intertwining of the lives of all the characters makes the story very realistic. Another one of Jodi Picoult's real life stories as if she has lived it.
