Just finished reading this and not quite sure what to think of it!

Somebody goes missing in the summer of 1976 and after attending a church service, two children set out to find God, convinced that finding God will lead them to find the missing person. They visit their neighbours in an attempt to find out where God is and along the way, various secrets are revealed. Some of the book is written from the perspective of Grace, one of the children, though to me, at times, it felt more like the adult Grace reflecting back on what had happened, rather than a 10 year old describing what was happening as it happened. For me, the ending was quite abrupt and I was left quite confused by it all.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has read it and what they think!

I bought it as a Kindle deal a while ago but haven't read it yet. Maybe I should read it after i've finished the new St Mary's book ....
