Close My Eyes
When Geniver Loxley lost her daughter at birth eight years ago, her world stopped--and never fully started again. Mothers with strollers still make her flinch; her love of writing has turned into a half-hearted teaching career; and she and her husband, Art, have slipped into the kind of rut that seems inescapable. But then a stranger shows up on their doorstep, telling Gen the very thing she's always wanted to hear: that her daughter Beth was not stillborn, but was taken away as a healthy infant and is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found.

There are a few interesting episodes, but mostly this book is like a script for another television series.

Great plot line, full of unbelievable twists and turns, marred by weak characters and immature writing.
