Eric Kennedy, ne Schroder, has had a difficult childhood but does that really excuse his kidnapping and then, let's face it, almost causing the death of his 6 year-old through neglect? Well, in this complex book, it just might. Every reader will need to decide for themselves - and maybe every parent too. Lots of issues here to fire up a reading group discussion. Don't expect an early night!
And so I had believed - right up to the moment when I saw myself on TV - that I had not 'kidnapped' Meadow but that I was merely very, very late to return her from an agreed-upon visit.
