Description: They said she walked away. But what really happened to Molly Clarke?
From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a compelling and emotionally powerful story of a daughter's desperate search to find her mother before it's too late.

They called it a “walk away.” The car abandoned miles from home. The note found at a nearby hotel. The shattered family. It happens all the time. Women disappear, desperate to start over. But what really happened to Molly Clarke?

The night Molly disappeared began with a storm, running out of gas, and a man offering her a ride to safety. But when the doors lock shut, Molly begins to suspect she has made a terrible mistake.

A new lead brings Molly’s daughter, Nicole, back to the small, desolate town where her mother was last seen to renew the desperate search. The locals are sympathetic and eager to help. The innkeeper. The bartender. Even the police. Until secrets begin to reveal themselves and Nicole comes closer to the truth about that night—and the danger surrounding her.

My Thoughts: I'm still not sure exactly what I think about this book. After having read it for only a short period of time, I found it hard to get into. I almost put it down a couple of different times. I thought that the story itself was too slow for me. I like a story with a lot of action and fast movement. 

I also wasn't fond of the change of narrator. I understand that it adds a different perspective to the story but for me it just didn't do it. The story changes perspective between the main character, the daughter, and the killer. 

Rating: 2 out of 5 because although I did finish this book, it just wasn't for me. I fond that it moved to slowly for me. I was disappointed because I heard lots of great things about this book. But not every book is going to meet everyone's needs, right?
