I received this book Hiding in Sunshine by John Stuart and Caitlin Stuart a few weeks ago from Influenster as an additional bonus for their Holiday Vox Box. I have to say I am glad I did! This book can be a real page turner. The first chapter was a little slow moving but as the chapters went on it became a book I could not put down! And I even finished reading the book in 4 days!
This father and daughter writing duo really put attention to details in this book, which keeps you wanting more as you're thrown into the realization that this could happen to you!
Hiding in Sunshine is the work of a father and daughter duo who reside in the immediate area where these fictional events transpire. John Stuart is a successful high tech entrepreneur. Caitlin Stuart is a student and an aspiring writer with a lifelong love of reading and telling stories. This is their first co-authored novel, and is proof that a teenager and her dad can indeed collaborate amicably and productively!
About this Book:
Living lives of quiet affluence in a historic, suburban Boston town, Gavin and Lisa Brinkley had no idea how quickly and decisively their lives, and those of their two young daughters, could be upended. A series of events - a mysterious break-in at their home, some menacing tailgating on the highway from Boston, a startling visit from an F.B.I. agent warning of an imminent kidnapping attempt - leads to the family's abrupt uprooting from its comfortable existence into a terrifying new existence on the run, under new identities. This taut thriller by a father-daughter team follows the eleven-year odyssey of an American family on the run, in hiding through the mountain states of the American west, where survival skills and living off the grid are paramount, but so are friendship, cooperation, and resilience. The enemy, always lurking just out of sight, is a foreign cyber-criminal enterprise that launches breathtaking assaults on the American banking system and physical infrastructure, but the Brinkleys also know that the threat is deeply personal, reaching ever closer to them from the shadows of the past. At the same time, Gavin and Lisa discover the perils of wandering too close to the edges of the dark side, in the murky world of cyber-security. A compelling story of suspense and treachery, HIDING IN SUNSHINE is also a celebration of a family's abiding love and courage -- and a young girl's faith in the triumph of the truth.
This book is well worth a look and one you shouldn't pass up! I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
