But knowing in advance that somewhere along the way throughout this novel her experience will be tied into three other people is what drives you forward - at lightening speed.
For me, this novel took me beyond finding out the connection of the four main characters - the backgrounds and current issues about each character will rip your heart out. Be prepared to become very emotionally involved with each and every one of them. There are passages about each one that will leave you breathless, give you pause to close your eyes and just imagine the heartbreak they went through/are going through.
I found the sensitivity portrayed of the characters the most important part of the novel.
I will interject one little personal comment about Cecilia with regard to what haunts her from her past: Get Over It.
Pay close attention as you read this novel. Each chapter deals with one of the four characters and I've come to appreciate this way of writing.
I have yet to be disappointed by a debut novel. This one was no exception, Knowing the author's background gave credence to her story. I look forward to future novels by Kavanagh.
Her husband, a policeman, another of the narrators, guesses that she had left him when he wakes and finds her closet empty. He is called out to examine the dead body of a young lady the morning of the crash and then is given the job of dealing with the dead girl's father; another of the story's narrators. When the husband hears the plane has crashed, he assumes she has been killed and is almost relieved; but when he arrives at the hospital expecting to hear she is dead, he is shocked to find that she is one of the few survivors. He realizes he is going to have to deal with an injured wife, a bereft father and finding a murderer.
Another of the narrators is the daughter of the crashed plane's pilot and she tells the story of the pilot's family, herself, her mother and her brother.
At first it is difficult to see how the stories of the all the characters are connected but as secrets are gradually revealed, the lives of the main characters are discovered to be interwoven in a dark way. The rumor circulates that the pilot purposely crashed the plane which devastates the pilot's family and the questions of why he would do that is a major part of the plot.
The books certainly keeps one's interest and the answers all come together in a surprise ending. It a good plot and a good read.
