I spent all of yesterday devouring The Second Captive by Maggie James. This book was a quick, exciting read. The story is told from three points of view, and I enjoyed the way the book was laid out. Part one is told from the perspectives of captor and captive. Beth is kidnapped and kept in a basement. Eventually, she begins to understand her captor and even possibly love him. She is still wise enough to escape when the chance is presented. No spoilers here, the book begins with her coming home then jumps back to the beginning.
The second part of the book is told from the perspectives of Beth and her mother. Beth is home, but she has changed. She won't tell anyone what happened, but her mother is persistent and slowly pieces together her daughter's harrowing story.
The Second Captive is an engaging and thrilling read. I could not put it down! I will definitely be checking out more books by Maggie James.
