Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey

Emma Townsend. Five years old. Gray eyes, brown hair. Missing since June.Emma is lonely. Living with her cruel mother and clueless father, Emma retreats into her own world of quiet and solitude.

Sarah Walker. Successful entrepreneur. Broken-hearted. Kidnapper.

Sarah has never seen a girl so precious as the gray-eyed child in a crowded airport terminal. When a second-chance encounter with Emma presents itself, Sarah takes her—far away from home. But if it’s to rescue a little girl from her damaging mother, is kidnapping wrong?

Amy Townsend. Unhappy wife. Unfit mother. Unsure whether she wants her daughter back.

Amy’s life is a string of disappointments, but her biggest issue is her inability to connect with her daughter. And now Emma is gone without a trace.
As Sarah and Emma avoid the nationwide hunt, they form an unshakeable bond. But what about Emma’s real mother, back at home?

My Thoughts
WOW!  This book = AMAZING!  The concept grabbed me from the beginning.  I loved the details that she places with each character, the good and bad.  What would you do if you saw a child being mistreated repeatedly?  Would you step in and take charge or would you sit back and ignore the situation and go on with your life?
Emma's life is turned upside down, but in the form of a kidnapping for good?  Is there such a thing?
Sarah was going about her trip and noticed a little girl being mistreated at the airport...then as luck would have it she sees the little girl again at a site visit...and (may have followed her to her home) she sees her being mistreated again...
Something in her snaps and she takes Emma...
Emma's mom Amy is not cut out to be a parent and has little desire as we can see by her story, but does that mean her daughter should be stolen from her?
This story has you asking yourself a lot of questions - if you saw something like this yourself what would you do? 
Must read for all!
