Publisher's Summary

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.

What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you've loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you've always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life as we know it might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; and how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.

Great Read

story started out a little slow, but soon became thought provoking. Worth reading for sure.

Brilliant! So many layers it kept unfolding. Really well narrated and such depth to the characters.

A bit boring

Very long winded. Some things that were written seemed very unnecessary. Became a bit predictable. Would often zone out as I found it a bit boring.

Potpourri of storie strands

Probably the one title I like the least of fav brilliant Jodie Picault’s books.
From child abduction to confused love story (why do they All love Delia so boundlessly?), to prison journal (compelling and touching), to an abundance of middle class alcoholics, to native Indian magical realism and a surprise sprinkle of convenient occluded memories.
A bit all over the place and to me emotionally unconvincing.

Another Picoult special

Jodie Picoult has a knack in drawing the reader/listener into the lives of her characters whilst drawing attention to important life issues. I felt I lived this experience alongside Delia. Beautiful story.

narration is just awful

The narration was just awful. Made it hard to follow the story. The mexican accents were the worst part for me.

Hideous narration

I couldn't listen to this book. The narration was TERRIBLE. Sounded like a robot. I'm not sure it's actually a person reading it.

Wasn't her best work

The story started strong. I became invested, then all the climaxes fell short, and it took a turn that felt... boring. I didn't even hear how it eventually ended as I fell asleep listening to it.
