Jodi Picoult - Vanishing Acts

Vanishing Acts
Picoult's 12th book, this time featuring Delia Hopkins, who searches for missing persons
417 pages

Why would a man who loved his wife - so much that in the quarter cenury since her death, he hasn't found someone to take her place - why wouldn't he have a record of the life he'd had with her, of the baby they'd made?

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and a job she loves, finding missing persons.

But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks at her door, and her world fractures into something unrecognisable...

This is also a book I'm reading for a group read, and I'm only a fourth in it so far. But I enjoy it a lot and hope to finish it soon.

First sentence:
"I was six years old the first time I disappeared."
