Arrowood by Laura McHugh

Arrowood by Laura McHugh

Arden Arrowood was four years old when her twin two-year old sisters were kidnapped from their front yard.  She has never really recovered from the guilt of that day even though she was so young herself.  She hasn’t been back to the family estate of Arrowood on the Mississippi River in years, but when she inherits the property she returns to try to put the past behind her by answering the questions no one has been able to, most importantly, where are her sisters?  

Aided by a journalist who is writing a book about the case for the twentieth anniversary of their disappearance Arden digs into the past of her family, her town and herself wondering if her own memories are reliable at all.

This is another story where the house is a character in its own right and seems to want to give up its secrets.  This is one of those books that as you neared the end you were pretty sure you knew how it ended, which I have to admit would have been disappointing, but it didn’t end where you assumed it would.  That’s when the author threw in one amazing twist that just left me with my jaw hanging open.
