“Seaside used to be home. Now? It held just about every bad memory it could. Because everywhere I walked. I saw my parents and every time I closed my eyes, I woke up thinking they were still alive. Only to realize within a few seconds that it wasn’t just a bad dream – they were dead.”
So Capture is not the typical book for me to read. Not in any way shape or form. It is a story of a woman…no a girl who by virtue of a great loss is forced to face up to her future long before any young girl should. Her trauma not only affects her mentally, but manifests itself in her physical being. This is actually a love story as the author, Rachel Van Dyken, brings an older man into her life…he’s 22, a famous actor, a hunk and good friends with her sister and brother-in-law. Only problem is her friends and brother-in-law are overly protective and she is a wee bit underage.
Again I don’t ever read love stories, but I found this to be entertaining and a worthwhile read. There were no spys or terrorists killed in this novel.
