“Bringing up Maggie” by Kim Vogel Sawyer, book review

Hazel and her three year old sister, Maggie, are out picking blackberries when Hazel is momentarily distracted and turns her back. In that moment, Maggie disappears! Hazel is frantic, but unable to find her. This was 70 years ago in 1943, but Hazel is still riddled with guilt today. It displays itself in her overprotectiveness of her own daughter, Diane. But her granddaughter, Meghan, sees it in a different light.

When Meghan is injured in an accident, all three women are forced to spend the six week recovery time together. During this difficult time, the disappearance of Maggie comes to light. Meghan uses her investigative skills to try to solve this long cold case. Maybe she can give some relief to her grandmother and mother.

This was an interesting book, filled with lots of details and strong characters. As with the author’s other books, the reader is quickly drawn into the plot and character’s lives.
