THE LOST HOURS by Karen White
Piper has just buried her grandmother Annabelle and now she is all alone. She came to live with her grandparents at the age of six after her parents died in a car crash. Annabelle's attorney has delivered to Piper an envelope containing only a charm. What does it mean? No note or explaination!
She digs up a forgotten box buried in the garden. It contains old, torn scrapbook pages and a newspaper clipping telling of a baby found floating in a river. She reads and learns about the lives of three best friends who recorded their thoughts, dreams and loves. Where are the rest of the pages? Piper embarks on a journey through her grandmother's life where love, death, and lost friends are found.
Such a tragic story resulting from a tragic time in our history. I give the book 5 stars. How cruel we humans can be to one another. I actually was mad at some of the characters, how dare they not tell the truth, to allow someone to believe all the way to the grave that they did something that they didn't!!! GAAAAH! Thanks Tess for the book.
