Publisher's Summary

Nine years ago, Molly Tanner witnessed a young girl's abduction in the busy city of Philadelphia, shifting her occasional clairvoyance into overdrive. Two days later, the girl's body was found, and Molly's life fell apart. Consumed by guilt for not acting upon her visions, and on the brink of losing her family, Molly escaped the torturous reminders in the city, fleeing to the safety of the close-knit rural community of Boyds, Maryland.

Molly's life is back on track, her son has begun college, and she and her husband have finally rekindled their relationship. Their fresh start is shattered when a seven-year-old girl disappears from a local park near Molly's home. Unable to turn her back on another child and troubled by memories of the past, Molly sets out to find her, jeopardizing the marriage she'd fought so hard to hold together.

While unearthing clues and struggling to decipher her visions, Molly discovers another side of Boyds, where the residents - and the land itself - hold potentially lethal secrets, and exposes another side of her husband, one that threatens to tear them apart.

"To say that this novel is sheer, literary brilliance is an understatement. This book will not let you down, nor will you be able to put it down." (eNovel Reviews)

Not a page-turner

Would you try another book from Melissa Foster and/or Kate Udall?

I probably wouldn't listen to another of Melissa Foster's books. I might give a listen to another book narrated by Kate Udall, depending on the subject.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No real surprise.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I felt like the narrator was speed reading, not a lot of inflection to her narration.

Was Chasing Amanda worth the listening time?

This is one time when I would say I might have enjoyed an abridged version better. There seemed to be a lot of going on and on that didn't add to the story line, just got a little boring and predictable.

totally absorbing

from beginning to end, I thought the book was really well written and well narrated, I didn't want to stop listening to the story, some parts had me on the edge of my seat, some parts quite upsetting.but thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend this book
