Someone took your daughter. And nobody believes you …

Three-year-old Ally was found alone in a parking lot.
She was barefoot and dressed only in a yellow sundress. In the middle of winter.
What kind of person would abandon their daughter?

Fifteen years later and Ally has a new family.
But her real father has sent her a letter.
And now Ally is missing.



This book’s synopsis I found to be very intriguing. A young girl found abandoned, and all alone; she is cold, underdressed, and appears to have been just left standing there. Why would she be there all alone? This alone had me hooked and wanting to read the book to find out what was going on.

Flash forward 15 years, and she is living with the people who found her. Now a teenager, Ally receives a mysterious letter from someone claiming to be her ailing father, saying he doesn’t have much time left in the world and wants to meet her. Without telling her parents, Ally decides to leave and meet this man. But is he truly her father? Is she safe, or is something dark and sinister going on?

Her father Dan, the man who raised her, is worried about where she is gone and decides to go search for her. He is quite hot tempered and angry, and has frequent outbursts. I mean he is searching for his daughter who he loves very much and I can’t blame him for being upset. I did find his character to be overly likable though, and he was quite impulsive, as he often made decisions without logically thinking them through and thinking of the consequences that could follow. I’ll give him credit though – he was determined to do whatever it took to find his daughter and make sure she was ok.

This book takes you on a wild journey as we follow one mans desperate attempts to locate his daughter.


MY RATING: 3/5 stars
