Hannah and Sam are well-defined and highly likable characters which is what keeps me going in my least favorite genre, mystery. Wade also does a masterful job of creating a sense of place and time. The plot, however, was a bit confusing especially at the end when too much was happening too fast (it would have be a 4 star if I had stopped 3/4 through, but then I would not have know how it ended!). This is a first novel and I am trusting the her next will be better. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060774932, Hardcover)

On a cold, rainy day, ordinary Hannah Price stumbles into the cathedral and does something extraordinary—almost in a trance, she makes a perfect drawing of an antique carving of the Virgin and Child, capturing their every detail.

The next day the statue of the Child is taken from the Virgin's arms, and a few days later Hannah is interviewed by the police. Soon, strange things start happening to her. An odd man keeps appearing. The portrait she painted of her best friend, Sam, is vandalized. Is it all related to the theft? Hannah is determined to find the statue, even if it will take a miracle.

Rebecca Wade has crafted a thriller that will puzzle and provoke every reader until its stunning conclusion.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:03:56 -0400)

Overweight with acne-prone skin, twelve-year-old Hannah always feels unsure of herself, but when a wooden statue of Jesus goes missing from a cathedral, she discovers a special connection with both the statue and a larger force.
