Frailty – Betsy Reavley

How far would you go to protect your family?   

Danny and Libby are about to face every parent’s worst nightmare.

When eight-year-old Hope Bird disappears without a trace, from the idyllic village where she lives, life for her family will never be the same again. Her parents know she would never have gone off alone and the police have no idea where she is. Then a child’s shoe is discovered and the case takes an unexpected turn. Soon a suspect is identified but this is only the beginning.

Will they ever find Hope?

Frailty is a haunting, gritty, psychological page-turner about the choices we make.

My Review: Frailty is a difficult book to read due to the subject matter and imo a difficult book to review because there were several “niggles” throughout the book which kept winding me up and making me question the plot but without wanting to give away any spoilers all does become clear at the end. Frailty is the story of 8 year old Hope who disappears on her way to the newsagent. Libby and Danny are the distraught parents having to cope with every parents nightmare wondering where she is and trying to function day by day. This story is told through Libby, Danny and Hope’s point of view and as a mother reading Libby’s chapters was heart wrenching. A tough book to read.
