The lives of three strangers interconnect in unforeseen ways--and with unexpected consequences. This book feels light and easy to read and yet I have sense of foreboding the whole time I am reading it (ok, it could be that the first chapter was about a young boy being rushed to the hospital by his father with his severed hand laying beside him!). Each chapter is engrossing and pulls you in more.
Without giving too much away, the three story-lines are:
- Ryan, his amputated hand and his father rushing him to the hospital
- Recently orphaned 18 year old Lucy who runs away with her teacher, who has a sense of strangeness about him, George Orson
- Thirty-one year old Miles who hasn't seen his twin brother Hayden in more than 10 years but gets "conspiracy" letters from him and Miles feels compelled to go hunt his brother down. This was a very engaging novel that had a mixture of feeling like a young adult/easy read and something that coiuld easily be turned into a movie.
