    A Stranger in the Family review ☆ 0 A Stranger in the Family what is the connection between a Leeds solicitor's family and a literary academic family in Glasgow headed by a Jewish refugeeI have been recently dealing with heavy stuff at work so here is yet another leisure read almost no thinking reuired when reading from Robert Barnard A Stranger in the Family 2010 promises A novel of suspense on the cover and sort of delivers particularly in the latter part of the novel Mr Barnard again displays a skill unusual for authors of mysterysuspensecrime novels the endings of his books are usually better than the beginnings In fact the beginning of this novel is barely readable and I had to grind my teeth to plough through Suppose you are abducted from your birth parents and siblings as a three year old child and raised by an adoptive family Suppose you are twenty two when you learn about the abduction and you finally meet your bir

    A Stranger in the Family review ☆ 0 A Stranger in the FamilyI'm a long time Robert Barnard reader His mysteries pack extraordinary events into a perfectly ordinary life No need for danger and thrills to make his stories interesting In the case of A STRANGER IN THE FAMILY Kit is told at age 23 that he was adopted as his adoptive mother is dying It's perfectly natural in such a case to try to fill the gap after her death by tracking down his birt

    A Stranger in the Family review ☆ 0 A Stranger in the FamilyAll I can say is Thank goodness I am finally done with this book I found this book at a book sale at one of my local libraries so I can say I am glad I didn't pay too much for this book This was a rather dry read for me I thought the story line sounded good a three year old kidnapped in 1989 and later found his family The story line focused on the reason behind the kidnapping rather than when he finally found his real family The book opened with him standing outside his birth mother's home in Leeds which is in England and he finally goes to the door rings the bell and tells who he is There is no over emotion of a long lost son returning home that was taken while the family was on holiday The mother invited him in showed him his old room blah blah blah Where is the emotion The hugs crying the happiness of him still being alive There was none of that Then there were the siblings The two older ones remembered him seemed s

    A Stranger in the Family review ☆ 0 A Stranger in the FamilyThe book started off brilliantly and is very easy to read However the characters are all cut out of the same cardboard the direction of the story is implausible If I was abducted as a child why would I go into the back history of my adopted father and towards the end the story felt pointless if it used the same setting to tell a story about the birth mother's legacy that would really have been interesting Digging a past crime which has no repercussions is just blah
