  1. We re only human It s a cliche we ve all heard before, but it carries a powerful message life s messy, and we all make mistakes.Sometimes our mistakes are insignificant we can pick up the pieces and move on Other times, life deals us an unfair hand, or the choices we make lead us down an unexpected path, and the resulting issues are not so easily solved.What happens when our choices and imperfections continue to impact our lives for months, even years Do we face the problem head on and begin the [...]


  2. Most of the novels I read are centred on one main character whereas disappearing in plain sight is centred on five core characters one of whom is dead and three other characters who almost steal centre stage When I d finished reading I asked myself, Who was the main character and couldn t come up with an answer This made this novel very different The writing is superb and there were scenes in two parts of the book that were beautifully crafted The first is something we have all experienced one a [...]


  3. While I thought this was going to be a story told from the point of view of a sixteen year old girl sent to her aunt s home for the summer, Francis Guenette managed to bring multiple characters, their growth and interactions as they learn to face and sort their pasts and then move forward into the future Cleverly penned with an eye for interaction and motivation into behaviors, fears and actions readers are pulled into the story that has little nuggets of gold buried within each character story [...]

The novel focuses on Lisa Maria who has been sent to live with her aunt for the summer and Izzy, a widow who is also the resident counsellor for the camp Lisa Marie is a typical sixteen year old with issues from her past she is yet to deal with Izzy has her own issues which stops her being the professional she should be There is a real sense of family about this novel different people with different problems coming together and making a life for themselves with the ghost of Izzy s husband Caleb, [...]


  5. The book packs an emotional punch, I found myself crying several times Lots of twists and turns, some I didn t expect Some of the people didn t really become full fledged characters to me Dan, the priest was never than a cardboard cut out priest Aunt Beth never really came clear as a person, and Beullah just seemed like a bully Lisa Marie seemed like a real teen, but maybe a little too quick to get over her trauma I didn t understand how Izzy could work with friends as a trauma therapist Unethi [...]


  6. Writing this review on 11 January, it may not seem much praise to say that this is one of the best books I ve read this year but I am pretty sure I will still be saying that by 31 December.I chose this book because of the intriguing title and beautiful cover, and its setting on Vancouver Island, where some of my relatives lived for many years, but which I never had the good fortune to visit With regard to the setting, this was powerfully evoked by the writing, bringing the territory to life in g [...]

  10. This lovely, intricately plotted novel unfolds in layers, all rich in detail and intrigue, until author Francis Guenette ties the threads together for a satisfying and surprising conclusion Told from the perspective of several characters as is true with life, some likable than others the story is difficult to categorize, both literary and young adult, but ultimately impossible to put down I look very forward to reading in the series


  11. WOW I read a lot of books but I rarely write reviews Most of the books are fun but not that memorable I enjoy them but they usually don t touch me all that deeply even the ones that are considered literary This book took me by surprise First, I bought it thinking it took place near Crater Lake in Oregon and I used to live near there Then I thought it was a suspense book about a missing person Lastly, I thought it would be a typical light read Well, I was wrong about all of those things This book [...]


  12. Lisa Marie goes to stay with her Aunt Bethany Bethany lives with her partner Beulah next to Camp Micah a place for those who may have had a troubled past to have time to excel at different pastimes and to find themselves with counselling at the same time The plot is based around 5 characters and their lives both now and in the past, the traumas they have endured and how they are patching things together The scenes are beautifully described This is one of those books that is hard to say too much [...]

  14. Disappearing in Plain Sight is a glimpse at the wild ugliness of humanity in the midst of the wild beauty of nature Guenette tells the story of many characters in a way that is both raw and empathetic I was disappointed at first that the characters seemed mostly built on stereotypes and that the story often ventured into the telling instead of showing realm However, this story ultimately invites the reader into a precious and intimate group of people in various stages of grief In the midst of th [...]


  15. I m not quite sure where I got the idea that this was a mystery novel It is not It is what I would call semi dark women s fiction with a heavy emphasis on sexual abuse and loss That said, however, the author does a good job of exploring the psychological effects of both, and the recognition of our own responsibility when it comes to dealing with them I do not regret reading this novel, in spite of the fact that I was mistaken in it s genre.


  16. Brilliant from start to finish.Life doesn t always turn out the way we want it to, but it s how you hang on to face another day that defines you That s what this book is aboutloved it and sad to finish can t wait to start on another in the series.

  19. It s been quite a while since I ve read a book so steeped in a vivid sense of place Because this novel is set in a remote corner of Canada s Vancouver Island, it feels almost mythic Francis Guenette s descriptions of fictional Crater Lake and environs are rich, detailed, textured, and almost tangible, and the reader learns where all the wooded trails lead as the characters live their lives at Micah Camp, a counseling facility for troubled young people.What Guenette depicts with her fairly large [...]


  20. What a book The novel follows the stories of various residents in the little community at Crater Lake With stunning sensitivity and an acute awareness of the importance of historically complete stories, Francis weaves together these broken and touching lives into a tale of emotional healing.The writer has a real flair for her craft even at the points where the plot slowed down and I started to worry that not much else would happen, Ms Guenette s writing carried me through If you re reading this [...]


  21. As a first novel, Disappearing in Plain Sight,is a stellar accomplishment for Franics Guenette As a rule, I only read with my Kindle when I go to bed at night, but once I started to read this book I didn t want to stop I read until 2 o clock in the morning, which is two and a half hours past my normal bed time I shut my kindle off and tried to go to sleep, but I was so captivated by the story that I couldn t shut my mind down It took me a long time to drift off and when I woke up in the morning, [...]

  24. Disappearing in Plain Sight is a beautiful and thoughtful book full of rich characters.Rather than centering on one protagonist, it follows a group of friends over a summer as each is forced to confront their past and face their future.It is a contemplative read Some books in this genre can be slow and or boring but Disappearing in Plain Sight never falls into that trap From early on, I could identify with the characters, and wanted to know what their back stories were and what would become of t [...]

  26. Featuring a complicated tapestry of lives, Disappearing in Plain Sight delivers an emotion packed, contemplative tale that can be a little too relatable for those who have suffered abuse, but overall a provocative read The cast of characters invites quite a few names to top billing Lisa Marie, the spunky teen with an intriguing past the ever on top of things Beulah the cowardly Bethany Izzy and her deceased husband and sentimental Liam though much looms beneath each fa ade as their stories inte [...]
