"I literally could not put this book down." –Chelsea Humphrey
"Danielle Esplin's 'Give it Back' is quite possibly one of the most gripping novels I have ever read. " –Nelou, author of The Fray Theory
"The story really pulled me in right off the bat. That hasn't been easy to do for me recently. There was just something about the story that kept me turning the pages. Every new scene just kind of had an ominous tone to it even if it was back story to beef up the main narrative. There was just something about this book. Very well written." –Ben Mariner, author of Apocalypse Wow
"Give It Back by Danielle Esplin is a great read that will keep you guessing. Danielle Esplin created fascinating individual story arcs for each character bringing you into each story and struggle as it progress, and, in the end, brings them all together seamlessly, creating the overall story arc and answering all the reader's questions. Overall, it is well written, with some very beautifully turned phrases." –L.W. Tichy, author of Tangled Web
"The Girl on the Train pales in comparison to Give It Back, and all of my previous prejudices against the genre were swept away. It was engaging, relatable, suspenseful, and stunning in its use of language. And all written in the author's second language. I was blown away." –Ella Magazine
This novel follows three characters: Lorraine, Lexy, and Ella.
Lorraine: Not long ago, Lorraine lost her husband to another woman. She thought that was the worst thing that could happen to her, but soon she realizes it’s just the beginning of an everlasting nightmare.
Lexy: Lexy, an au pair from London, moves to Seattle to help Lorraine with her infant son. But she didn’t come for the child…she came for something else.
Ella: When Ella receives a call from her sister, Lorraine, who begs her to leave San Diego to spend time with her, she decides to take a few days off from work to visit her. Frightened to see how much Lorraine has weakened since her diagnosis eight months ago, she packs a bag and heads to Seattle with a foreboding feeling that this might be the last time she sees Lorraine.
But on her way to the airport, she learns that something shocking has happened since she last spoke with Lorraine and now. To make matters worse, once Ella arrives in Seattle, Lorraine's story keeps changing, making Ella question how reliable her sister really is.
Soon Ella is entangled in a mysterious investigation, and more so, in the lives of everyone involved. She realizes not only that she won’t go home anytime soon but also that she’ll never look at others the same way she did before.
