Vanishing Time

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): Cama Truesdale’s ex-husband and young son leave Boston for a "boys only" fishing trip in South Carolina’s Low Country. In the early morning hours, Cama is jolted awake by a phone call. There’s been a fire on board the boat. Her ex-husband is dead. Her son is missing and presumed dead. As she sets off for South Carolina, Cama's belief that her son Tate is alive is unwavering. But her frantic search soon stirs up painful memories that send her reeling back to her childhood and the mysterious car crash that killed her Gullah mother and white father. As the clock ticks down, exhausted, haunted by dreams, and stymied by the police and local community, she enters a world in which she must rely on instinct over fact, and where no one and nothing is what it seems—not even the boundary between the living and the dead.Vanishing Time is a tale about how grief can shape reality and the power of a mother’s love.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: When a mother is convinced that her son is still living even though all the evidence goes against her, look out because it creates a good book to read.  Toss in her own childhood trauma that is linked to present day and you have a great book to read!  I was on pins and needles to the very end and was shocked by the time I got there.  I wasn't able to figure out the links from past to present but they unfolded very well.  I really enjoyed Vanishing Time.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I have read other Katharine Britton books in the past and have enjoyed everyone of them.  You can see my reviews on Little Island and Her Sister's Shadow.  Katharine always has the most beautiful covers too!

Katharine has a Master’s degree in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College. Her screenplay "Goodbye Don’t Mean Gone," on which "Vanishing Time" was based, was a Moondance Film Festival winner and a finalist in the New England Women in Film and Television contest. When not writing, Katharine can often be found in her Vermont garden, waging a non-toxic war against slugs, snails, deer, woodchucks, squirrels, chipmunks, moles, voles, and beetles. Katharine’s defense consists mainly of hand-wringing after the fact. Also by Katharine Britton: "Her Sister's Shadow" and "Little Island."
