“Take my hand, little one.”
Fran finds her standing by the swings. A little girl, Esther, no older than seven years old, by herself in the dead of night, her pretty but old-fashioned yellow dress covered in grass stains and her hair dishevelled. She says she’s waiting for Father, and that strikes Fran as particularly odd.
After Esther is reunited with her family, Fran can’t stop thinking about this pious child whose imaginary friend is God. Fran’s instincts tell her something is very wrong. Why does Esther keep running away from home, and how did she get that bruise on her leg?
Fran’s husband warns her not to get too close, but one morning, Esther and her family disappear. Where did they go? Why did they leave their furniture behind?
Fran knows in her gut that something terrible is going to happen to that child, and she can’t stand by while it happens. No matter the cost.
After all, she found her. But can she save her?
So today on release date let’s take a look at Little One.
This one I found it for my New Release Challenge for january.
And it surprised me very good, when I began reading it gave the sensation that the protagonist was a little lost in a way but after a while you discover a torn but brave woman underneath, that think for herself and take action when she deem necessary and important, I liked that about Fran.
Adrian in the other hand was so calm, I was relating to him a lot during the book, he had this inner peace disposition until you saw a little more closely, and as they say not everything is what it seems.
The introduction of Mary and Esther was chaotic in a good way because it’s what moves us forward and wao the motivation that this book gives you to learn the truth and put the pieces together it was masterfully done, I loved it.
The twists and turns were very interesting and cool and it left me putting pieces of the puzzle together all the time, it was an awesome thriller.
