Deep End of the Ocean, The

Jacquelyn Mitchard
The Deep End of the Ocean is a story about every parent's worst nightmare: the loss of a child. It is a story that is all too familiar to many of us, made frighteningly routine by the young faces emblazoned on milk cartons or steeped in pathos by Hollywood scriptwriters. In Jacquelyn Mitchard's deft hands, however, the story of the Cappadora family is neither routine nor cliched. It is chillingly and beautifully real. "The Deep End of the Ocean" is a moving account of a family coming to grips with the nightmare of losing a child. The writing is strong and the plot, although somewhat predictable, keeps moving so that the pages keep turning. The book is thought-provoking and quite emotional. The book contains some sexual content and profanity. I enjoyed the book although it was a difficult subject. It is not a light read, but certainly worthwhile and I would recommend it to others. Book ships from Texarkana, Arkansas. Really emotional book
