2 floors. 55 steps to go up. 40 more to the crib.

Since Rebecca Gray was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease, everything in her life consists of numbers. Each day her world grows a little darker and each step becomes a little more dangerous.

Following days of feeling like someone’s watching her, Bec awakes at home to the cries of her son in his nursery. When it’s clear he’s not going to settle, Bec goes to check on him.
She reaches in. Picks him up.
But he’s not her son.
And no one believes her.

One woman’s desperate search for her son . . .

In a world where seeing is believing, Bec must rely on her own conviction and a mother’s instinct to uncover the truth about what happened to her baby and bring him home for good.

My Review:

Once again I am floored by how Frey just draws me into her stories from page one and keeps me absolutely riveted until the very last.  In this particular book, she introduces us to Bec, who has lost her sight in her adulthood, lost her husband before her baby was born, moved into her mother's house, lost her and is now just trying to keep her shit together.  Then she's positive that the baby she's picks up one day is not hers... so what has happened and why won't anyone believe her?

PHEW - this is quite the roller coaster.  And I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to write this without giving anything away. So I'll just say that the way Frey gives us this view of a blind woman is impressive and I absolutely appreciate all the research she put into giving us a strong main character with a disability.  There was just one little thing with the reveal that didn't *quite* make sense to me in terms of the happenings of it all... but that's such a small thing and it didn't take away from the absolute feelings I got while reading this story.  The final letter had my eyes a little wet.  I could not put this book down.

This is my third book by Frey and I would highly recommend each and every one.  Frey is easily one of my favorite authors and I will pick up anything she puts out into the world.  If you love page turning suspense novels that really tug at your heart strings, absolutely put this on your TBR - then come and talk to me!
