This is actually a very simple story: a woman (Troy) rescues a 5-year-old boy (Paul) when he's thrown off a ferry. She takes him in, instantly bonds with him. She eventually reunites him with his father when she decides he's trustworthy. Then they help Paul get over his trauma, and Troy decides she needs to find the kidnappers to put everyone at ease.

It was good, just not super great.

(There was minimal swearing and no sexual content.)

I also liked this story, mostly because I could easily relate to the main character. The plot was not so hard to figure out but I liked the narrative and enjoyed the book because of it. February'12
