Until I Find You

April 26 - May 21, 2021 Tour
Soon, Rebecca Gray won’t be able to see. Diagnosed in her twenties with a degenerative eye disease, each day her world grows a little darker. She’s moved to the suburbs to raise her son, Jackson. In the wake of her husband\'s death, it should be a quieter, easier way of life. It won’t be.
The Moment That Changes Everything
When Bec awakes after fainting in the park, she makes promises to start taking better care of herself. When her son begins to cry, she approaches the crib. Reaches in. Picks him up. But he’s not her son.
There’s nothing Bec won’t do to find Jackson. But she’s a blind woman in a world where seeing is believing. The police think she’s confused. Her friends don’t see any differences. Relying on the conviction of her instinct and the power of a mother’s love, Bec must push the limits of her world to uncover what happened to her baby boy…and bring him home for good.
This novel got off to a slow start for me. There is some psychological suspense early on but nothing actually happens until nearly a third of the way into the book. I have to admit I started skimming about a quarter of the way in. The psychological suspense is built on Bec being blind. There is no other suspense as her life is never in danger.
I did not feel empathy for Bec because she was such a stubborn and prideful woman most of the time. But at one point, when Jake was leaving for a police assignment, she says she can't do this without him. I felt there was some inconsistency in the characterization of Bec. She is portrayed as always refusing help before and after that one scene.
The plot was certainly complex. Just before the denouement, as facts become clear, Bec says, “That doesn't make sense.” (3885/4309) I kind of felt the same way. I had to suspend some belief to think that the events could have worked out as described.
The best part of this novel is Frey's writing style. It is actually captivating. Once I got about half way through the book, I didn't want to put it down, even with the complex plot and the character inconsistencies.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
