"Chasing Amanda" by Melissa Foster


“Chasing Amanda”by Melissa Foster

It is now eight years ago since Molly witnessed the abduction of a little girl in a Walmart parking lot.  Molly has had the hardest time getting over this traumatic situation, as she felt she could have done more to help this little girl.  Molly, her husband Cole, and her son, Erik, decided to move away from Philadelphia, the town where this occurred eight years ago, to a new town, called Boyd, for a fresh start for Molly.  Here they are making a new life with new people, a new home, and new surroundings.  Molly wasn’t running away from what happened, but it was a part of her and of the families healing, as it had affected them, as well, with Molly’s distress.
A local Pastor, Pastor Lett, has also helped Molly work through the traumatic situation Molly witnessed.  Pastor Lett called Molly’s recovery process, ‘cleansing the chaos from her mind’.  Molly could live with that, and her visits were getting less and less with her.  Molly was making progress.  However, Molly still had visions.  Molly called them “The Knowing”.  These visions Molly had were not happening very often at the moment, thankfully
Every morning Molly goes for a run through the woods.  This one morning she had a vision of a little girl named Tracey being abducted.  When Molly returned from her run, she found out it was true, and “The Knowing” was back.  The visions were back.
This book takes us through all of the search efforts to find Tracey.  No one could find her, and Molly continued having “The Knowing” haunting her.  She kept getting visions of Tracey over and over as to what was happening to her, but couldn’t quite make the details out clear enough.  Molly was being hard on herself about seeing the abduction back in Philadelphia again, and made a pact with herself this time she was going to try to help more with this abduction of Tracey.  This time she was not going to keep so quiet about what she saw and knew.
The visions kept coming to her.  She couldn’t make them out clear enough yet to be able to tell exactly what and where Tracey might be.
Molly did eventually go to the police and told them a little bit of what her capabilities were.  She was laughed at by some, but taken more seriously by one of the Officers.
This story twists and turns and goes in every different direction than what you might expect it to go through.  I thought I knew who the abductor was, and how the entire story plays out.  I was completely fooled and shocked as the story unfolded and all the answers came out.
Melissa Foster’s masterful writing talent weaves a story that pulls you in and keeps you reading right to the end.  You can’t ‘just’ put her books down because you want to know how everything unfolds.  This book ‘IS’ a “Can’t Miss” read!
Melissa Foster’s other book she has written, “Megan’s Way” is being made into a movie at this moment.  I can’t see why this book has not been chosen to be made into a movie as well.  Melissa Foster is an author to watch.  Her masterful writing abilities result in amazing stories.  I look forward to reading more of what she writes.  I can’t wait to read her next book
I received this book for “FREE” from the Author, Melissa Foster, in exchange to read this book and write a review about it.  It is NOT required for my review I write to be either positive or negative, but, “of my own opinion.”  I was NOT provided with “ANY” monies to accept this book, “NOR” to read it, NOR were “ANY” monies given to me to write the review for this book.  All that was ‘expected’ of me was to enjoy the pure pleasure of reading it.  Again, the opinions expressed for and about this book are ‘of my own opinion’.  I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255, http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
