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 fiance, 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 under-standing, insight, and compassion.

As always, it is hardest to review the books one likes, and since it has been a while since I read this, I will do this the short way. Things I liked about Vanishing Acts: all five POVs – the combination worked perfectly together and made an amazing story; the insight into prison system/life, how...
i am just not a fan of Jodi Picoult's writing style. Hearing the same story from 3 points of view in 3 separate chapters over and over again was exhausting.
