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.

Dies ist eine wirklich spannende Geschichte. Leider klappt es mit dem Kopieren meiner Rezi nicht, also werd ich sie halt hier mit meinem Blog verlinken ;)
I LOVED this book!!! It had a strong storyline, the characters were interesting, and the small twists and turns of the story made it a great read. I didn't want to put it down.
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...
All in all, Vanishing Acts was an absolutely heartfelt story not only about the kidnapping as its main focus, but also many other present everyday issues everyone could or might be facing already.Read full review on my blog, Beyond Strange New Words.
