Book Review - You Are My Only



From Goodreads:

Emmy Rane is married at nineteen , a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock. Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the “No Good.” One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that opens Sophie’s eyes, giving her the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever…

The riveting stories of Emmy and Sophie—alternating narratives of loss, imprisonment, and freedom regained—escalate with breathless suspense toward an unforgettable climax.

When I read Beth Kephart's last novel, Dangerous Neighbors, I knew I'd found a unique gem and told everyone who would listen to go out and buy it. I eagerly awaited her newest release, You Are My Only, and I wasn't disappointed.

As I read her luscious descriptions and insanely poetic use of the English language, I found myself hoping the story would never end. You Are My Only is a heart-wrenching mystery, full of intrigue and just a touch of romance thrown into the mix. As near to perfect as I've read in a long time. I urge you not to miss this one. Highly recommended.

OMG, that sounds a lot like The Face on the Milk Carton, which I LOVED. I think this might need to go on my TBR list!! :-)
