Author: Karen Dionne
Genre: Thriller (moderate)
Atmosphere: The setting and mood are somewhat like "The Great Alone"

This book will make you wonder about many issues. Is it possible to love the baby of your kidnapper? How much does the father need to screw up before you stop being on his side? Children are resilient - why do we lose that as we grow up? How minimalist can you go when you live in a cabin cut off from civilisation?

Beautifully written. You'll be glad you've read it.
