Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker
Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker is a twisted story about mothers and daughters. Cass and Emma are sisters and
live with their mother, her new husband and his son. The girls were constant pawns in their mother’s twisted reality with her personality disorder. Then one night the girls disappear and three years later Cass reappears. Dr Abigail
Winter a forensic psychiatrist with the FBI was one of the people on the case and not finding the girls was something she could never let go of.
Cass tells the story of what happened to Emma and
Cass over a series of days to FBI. Abigail Winter tells the story of the investigation and her questions from the past and present. As the story goes back and forth between Cass and Abigail, pieces of the story are presented, leading to a conclusion
that is just a shock to the system.
Emma in the night was a thriller with twists and turns, madness and mayhem and a crazy mother. I loved the characters with Cass and Abigail’s voices. I
felt that Abigail in her role of knowledge and understanding explained Mrs. Martin’s personality disorder beautifully. I thought, Emma in the Night was a great read.
