9780736914147: A Window to the World

Here is the dramatic story of two young girls, Megan and Jen, who meet in first grade and quickly become inseparable friends.

Inseparable, that is, until one of them is snatched away by kidnappers as the other young girl watches helplessly.  

The remaining child grows up with the haunting memory of her friend’s abduction...and absence from her life.  Then, sixteen years later, the stunning truth of the disappearance

is revealed. And once again, lives are changed forever.

This wonderful and heartrending second novel endears the reader to every character in this intriguing story. A testament to God’s ability to “work all things together for good.” A smashing follow–up to the author’s well–received first novel, Why the Sky Is Blue.

Review:

When your best friend disappears under tragic circumstances, how can you still believe in God—and have confidence in yourself? In Meissner's uneven second novel, eight-year-old Megan Diamond's best friend, Jen Lovett, is snatched by strangers as they ride bikes in their San Diego neighborhood. Meissner (Why the Sky Is Blue) chronicles the events leading up to Jen's disappearance and the ripple effects of the kidnapping, which will affect Megan's self-confidence, perception of romantic love and trust in God through adulthood. Jen's unexpected reappearance years later—just as her father makes headlines as one of the richest men in America—is disappointingly anticlimactic. Meissner tells rather than shows and overexplains some of her potentially lovely symbolism rather than letting readers draw their own conclusions. But her characters are vivid creations, and there are good intergenerational moments between Megan and an elderly furniture upholsterer. Megan's early platonic relationship with the home-schooled and ultra-polite David Christopoulos will play well with conservative Christian readers, as will Megan's assertion, "I don't want to live in a world like this one without God." However, the story never quite takes off, and the ending will feel abrupt to many readers.

*Starred Review* Shy first-grader Megan Diamond, from an evangelical family, forms an instinctive bond with newcomer Jennifer Lovett in Meissner's tightly woven mystery. Outgoing little Jennifer is the daughter of a pair of free spirits, and she encourages Megan in a nascent rebellion against her parents. Or so Megan's rigid mother, Trina, thinks, but is she too strict? How rebellious can first-graders be, anyhow? Before the reader can figure out which side to take, however, there is a startling development: Jennifer is kidnapped. And 16 years will have to pass before a sober Megan will understand why. John Mort
