Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, and the critically acclaimed author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be, comes a novel about friendship and the memories that haunt us—includes a special PS section featuring insights, interviews, and more.

On the night of her high school graduation, Kathryn Campbell sits around a bonfire with her four closest friends, including the beautiful but erratic Jennifer.  “I’ll be fine,” Jennifer says, as she walks away from the dying embers and towards the darkness of the woods. She never came back.

Ten years later, Kathryn has tried to build a life for herself, with a marriage and a career as a journalist, but she still feels the conspicuous void of Jennifer’s disappearance. When her divorce sends her reeling back to the Maine town where she grew up, she finds herself plunged into a sea of memories. With nothing left to lose, she is determined to answer one simple question: What ever happened to Jennifer Pelletier?

    I'm so thrilled when one of her books appears on the under $4 list! Not that they aren't worth more, they are. Her characters live in your head even when you're not actively reading. She writes beautifully and spins great tales, too.

    I finished "Orphan Train", which I loved so was hoping I would enjoy "Desire Lines" just as much. I was very disappointed. It was as if the novels were written by two very different authors. The story was dragged out and the main character was very unlikable. I stopped caring if they figured out the mystery of the missing girl since she was just as unlikable.

    Good character development and plot. The story weaves in the conflicted main character's relationship with her mother, father and husband with a challenging murder mystery. Themes of loss, innocence, and coming of age are cleanly tackled. I found the book hard to put down and the characters stayed with after I put it aside for work. Highly recommended.
