    Clara is adopted Of course that’s not all there is to her but as you can imagine the search for her true biological identity does become central when a dying man admits his crimes So on she goes looking for the truth that was denied to her and although she finds it dealing with it simply can’t be easyWhat I liked the most about this book is the realistic treatment of Clara’s emotions regarding the truths she uncovers along the way While many many writers would give their main character a fairy tale like life where everything makes sense as every piece falls into place what Jannie does here is to throw some pieces askew for Clara and then she has her settling them into place on her own one by one And that if you ask me if the best way to create an interesting character and an interesting story Is everything easy for Clara when she leaves Denmark and goes to America to meet her biological family? Well no not really It’s not hell either but the author manages to balance the good and the bad the happy and the sad the joy and the confusion in a way that is realistic which is the best word to describe Clara’s inner journey What do you do when the parents you never knew you had wish to shower you with love as they deserve but also want you to forget 20 years of your life as if they had never taken place? How do you make them understand that said love can also be a little overbearing? That a person used to being alone needs time to recover from a huge family where everything wants a piece of you? Clara could easily turn bitter or pretend there’s nothing wrong and put a smile on her face but would any of these sound remotely real to you? They wouldn’t to me The author however juggles both options wonderfully giving you characters you can relate to and that you can root for In my opinion this novel has a powerful message every one of us can relate to love your family but above all treasure yourselfAll in all this is the perfect novel for this holiday season wherever you live It’s got a main character you root for because you can see and above all understand her struggles a hero that’s always there supporting her and that’s not willing to allow Clara to forget their shared past even though she does resist his charm at first and above all a flowing story that will warm your heart in these cold days or that will make the perfect beach company if you like myself happen to live in the Southern Hemisphere ;

    Eve uinn was kidnapped 27 years later Clara Christensen discovers she is really Eve – a victim of a ‘white laundering kidnapping’ scheme Her adoptive parents now dead had no clue their daughter was procured illegally Now Clara finds herself in a foreign country on the doorstep of her birth parents preparing to meet the family she never knew—the family who has spent 27 long years waiting for her returnIn a twist of fate the uinn’s had taken in though not officially adopted a young man named Duncan A man who would go on to meet and fall in love with a Danish woman named Clara while on vacation only to find the phone number she gave him illegible This was my first book by Jannie Lund and it will not be my last She has a way of making the characters real and come to life This is a sweet clean romance It’s also Clara’s story of discovering who she really is learning to adapt to a large family who remembers her as a baby and her parents having to realize that the Eve they lost will never return and having to learn to accept Clara as she isAnd as far fetched as it is that the Duncan Clara met on vacation would just happen to be the same man her biological parents took in as a boy it’s easily overlooked This is a feel good story I didn’t want to endShould you read Finding Clara? YES If you enjoy sweet contemporary romances I think you’ll love this story Disclaimer I work for the company that released this book however I receive no monetary compensation for any sales of this book My employment with the company in no way changes my opinions or rating of the book

    I always enjoy reading this author's wordsThe characters make this book so colourful They burst off the page and bring the whole plot to life The reader is thrown right into the middle of Clara's story and what a story it is I loved the added twist of exactly how she knew Duncan tooMore than a few times the author had me giggling at random conversations and obviously I adored that both Clara and Duncan run The little added gem for me was Duncan's rather random telephone relationship with Gertrud That was a nice addition and whenever Duncan spoke to her I found myself smilingAnother brilliant read from a great author
