One night, Molly Clarke walked away from her life. Or at least, that’s the story.
The car abandoned miles from home. The note found at a nearby hotel. The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.
It happens all the time. Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.
But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?

Molly Clarke seems to be having an estranged relationship with her family after the death of her youngest daughter, Annie. While on the way home after visiting her son’s football game, her cars stops in the middle of the road and while trying to get gas for her car, she stops an oncoming truck and gets in. That was the last seen of Molly Clarke as she has left a note saying “Don’t Look For Me,”. A few days later, her oldest daughter Nic gets a tip from a woman who is saying that she saw the truck in which Molly got into.
This story was really good! Fast paced, some twists and turns that will keep you hooked from the first page onwards. The story is told from the perspective of Molly who is being held captive by a man named Mick and develops a sort of bond with a ten year old girl named Alice and Nic, who comes to the small town of Hastings, in the hopes of finding her mother and discovers some deep dark secrets in the town. I was hooked into the story, wondering what is going to happen next that I simply couldn’t put the book down. I like Molly’s determination to live and escape and Nic’s determination to find her mother even though her father is asking her to return back home. The ending was a bit dramatic, like I felt as if I was watching a movie or something and a bit unrealistic but nonetheless, the book was good and enjoyable, that will hook you up from the beginning. I also like how both Molly and Nick are struggling with the death of Annie, each blaming themselves for the death and the emotions that each of them are going through seems realistic.
Overall, I give this book as four stars!
