Just what would you do to save your child? This is the question that is presented to the reader. The author, Diane Chamberlain, is a hit or miss author for me. I think if I was reading this book on the beach it would have been a hit. Since I wasn’t, it was more of a miss. Think the movie, “Back to The Future” meets the book, “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” The humor in the book reminds me of the movie with someone from the past trying desperately to fit into the future without sticking out like a sore thumb. While it also reads similar to “Traveler’s Wife,” making the reader wonder did the magic of the complicated plot take away from the realism of the characters? Like most women’s fiction “Daughter” has enough drama to pull heartstrings. I did think the book ended too nicely, it could have been wrapped up with a bow. All though this style of writing bothers me; this reviewer admits I was anxious to learn how it would end. If you are a fan of this genre, I suspect you will gobble this one up.
I received this Advance Review Copy (ARC) novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
