THE LOST DAUGHTER
Ferriss’ latest is a deeply emotional book with lyrical writing. It is a modern story with deep underlayers, making it more meaningful than just a light read. The characters, deeply flawed but very human, draw you in. They’re making choices blindly, since they never can see the future clearly, and then they must live with the results as they come.
Brooke O’Connor is happily married with a beautiful daughter and a loving husband. But she refuses to have another child. Sean can’t understand why. Brooke has a secret that could change her and her family’s lives, one she hoped never to have to tell her husband. But when her high school love returns and wants to reestablish a relationship, she is forced to confront past tragedy. (BERKLEY, Feb., 400 pp., $15.00)
