The Girl Who Stayed by Tanya Anne Crosby

About the Book
Goodreads | Amazon
Zoe Rutherford wasn't sure what she was expecting when she returned to Sullivan's Island. The house on Sullivan's hadn't represented home to her in decades. It was the place where she endured her father's cruelty. It was the place where her mother closed herself off from the world. It was the place where her sister disappeared. But now that her parents are gone, Zoe needs to return to the house, to close it down and prepare it for sale. She intends to get this done as quickly as possible and get on with the rest of her life, even though that life seems clouded by her past, both distant and recent. But what she discovers when she gets there is far beyond her imagining and will change her in profound ways.

The Girl Who Stayed is a remarkable exploration of the soul by a writer with a rare talent for reaching into the hearts of her characters and her readers, a novel of transformation that will leave you moved and breathless.

Tanya Anne Crosby tells an interesting story full of mystery, suspense, and emotional healing in The Girl Who Stayed. As Zoe Rutherford returns to her family home on Sullivan’s Island, her story intrigued me. Page after page, Zoe faces the haunting memories of her past and seeks for the truth behind her sister’s disappearance, and I couldn’t stop reading. The Girl Who Stayed is a compelling and enjoyable read, and I recommend it. Readers looking for mystery and suspense with plenty of emotion will not be disappointed.
