The Drifter

Book Summary:

For two decades Elizabeth has been trying to escape her past which is full of painful memories. Finally, she can run from her past no more. She must confront her terrifying nightmares if she is to be able to live now.

We learn about Elizabeth's history at college with her two closest friends. Everything seems perfect for them. Without warning their whole lives change. A series of violent acts ensure that even those that survive will be changed forever. Elizabeth must face the fact she had a role in her friend's death if she will ever have normal relationships again.

My Thoughts:

This book was promoted as a thrilling mystery. I would say it is closer to fiction than mystery. The premise sounded interesting to me. A woman who has been living in denial, but is forced to face her past and the death of her friend seemed like it had a lot of potential. I think it fell a little flat for me. Mostly because it was portrayed differently than it should have been in my opinion.

I also thought that the book could have been a little shorter than it was. There were a lot of details that I really did not need to get into the story. It took me a while to read mostly because it did not hold my interest. There were parts that were really interesting, but it would lag in between.

Overall, I would say give it a try if the description interests you.

*I received a free copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads Program in exchange for an honest review.

*Receiving a free copy of this book does not change my review. It simply provides me with a copy of a book I would not have gotten to as soon, or heard about otherwise.
