In 'Stolen', she tells the story of what happens when a child vanishes and no one knows what has happened. Years later, she explores the lives of those affected and how, by a few twists of fate, their lives come together and the truth of what happened over thirty years before is uncovered. Lucy Winters' parents have always been there for her. Loving, gentle and kind, they have given her everything she could have wished for. Now, estranged from her husband, Lucy has moved to the country to take over their thriving auction business. From the moment she begins to prepare for her first sale she knows she's made the right decision. And she dares to hope that at last she is living the life she has always dreamed of. But then, quite suddenly, her world is thrown into turmoil. She discovers a shocking truth, one that forces her to question everything she has ever known. And it becomes frighteningly possible that the very people who should have protected her are the ones who have betrayed her in the most devastating of ways. Can she ever forgive them? Can they ever forgive themselves...? Stolen is a story about Lucy Winters, whose parents have always been nothing but wonderful to her, who decides that she’d like to leave a life in London where she has always felt that something is missing, to take over the family auction business in a small village in the country. Her daughter Hanna is going with her, much to Hanna's disgust, while son Ben is taking a year out to travel the world. Lucy sees this as a trial separation from husband Joe who she is leaving behind in London. He is an out of work actor and is in her eyes a drain on her and her resources. When she arrives in Cromstone, she couldn’t be made more welcome and makes some wonderful new friends, not realising just how much of an important part they will be playing in her future. She finally feels that she is starting to get her life together when astonishing events that she discovers, uncover a lifetime of lies and deceit and she is not sure if she will ever be able to forgive the people who are involved. Stolen' starts over thirty years ago with a harassed young mother and her three small children travelling on the tube. The children are messing about and it's no wonder that, when it is time for them all to get off, things become difficult. This results in the eldest child, Alexandra, being left in the carriage while the mother frantically attempts to stop the train. A kindly looking man gestures that he will get off with the little girl at the next stop and will wait for the mother. That is how it is left so the reader cannot be sure exactly what has happened although I definitely had my suspicions. The story moves forward more than thirty years and the reader is introduced to a whole host of characters who have all somehow ended up in the small Cotswold village of Cromstone Edge. Lucy is running her parent's auction house; Sarah is escaping from a recent personal tragedy and John and Pippa have retired and are looking forward to a quiet life. Along with their families, they get to know each other and settle into their new lives. However, because of what the reader has been told at the start of the book, it's obvious that at least some of their stories are linked to what happened all those years before. It makes for perfect reading as we try to fathom it all out and particularly what might have happened in the intervening years. Although it's possible to partly predict what had probably happened, there are also some surprises in store too. It is like fitting together all the pieces in a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle – some parts are easier than others but by the end the complete picture is clear. I absolutely loved 'Stolen' and I was hooked from the very first page. In fact my housework suffered and my daughters had to wait for their tea because I couldn't bring myself to put it down. Susan Lewis has crafted absorbing story-lines involving some wonderful characters that I grew to know and care about. It was very easy to empathise with all their varying emotions – confusion, joy, grief, frustration, conflict – as the lives that they had always known started to unravel before them. The story does take you on an emotional roller-coaster too, and there were many occasions when the pages were blurred because of my tears. However, there are lots of lighter moments too and I found the backdrop of the auction world quite fascinating. Overall, 'Stolen' is a fabulous book that kept me wanting to read more. It is dramatic, tense and poignant and altogether a very satisfying read. Susan is an incredible author. The characters are so real and the places so authentic that you become involved in the plot very quickly becoming mesmerised and extremely concerned about people and events and I even heard myself sighing and gasping in certain places! About the Author Susan Lewis is the bestselling author of thirty-eight novels. She is also the author of Just One More Day and One Day at a Time, the moving memoirs of her childhood in Bristol.
