Description

Estelle Paradise wakes up in a hospital after being found near dead at the bottom of a ravine with a fragmented memory and a vague sense of loss. Then a terrifying reality sets in: her seven-month-old daughter, Mia, is missing.



Frustrated and unable to explain her daughter's disappearance, Estelle begins a desperate search. But when the lack of evidence casts doubt on her story, Estelle becomes the number one suspect in the eyes of the police and the media.



As hope of reuniting with Mia becomes all she has left, Estelle will do anything to find answers: What has she done to her baby? And what has someone else done to her?

    If you have been part of the craze reading books like GONE GIRL and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, you will definitely like Burt's take on this gripping and suspenseful story of a mother and her baby. It's not quite fair to say that Estelle is an "unreliable narrator" because she truly doesn't remember what happened. She awakens to find her baby gone and her apartment completely devoid of anything related to her baby. It is like the baby never existed. Her husband is away working in Chicago while she is in New York City and he is certain that she has done something to their baby. Estelle can't believe that she has, but the baby is gone and she remembers nothing.As Estelle flashes back to the days, weeks and months before Mia's disappearance, the reader sees a mother desperately struggling to make it through her days as a stay-at-home mom. There is no doubt she is suffering from postpartum depression, but was it deep enough for her to harm her baby? As the reader, you will grow increasingly frustrated with both Estelle and her husband, who seems clueless to her despair. Her misery runs so deep she describes being at the bottom on a well and not being able to see the stars.This is not a happy book. For mothers, it will make your stomach churn. What happens to Mia is unthinkable, horrific, and a nightmare for all involved. This book is tough to read at times. As badly as I wanted to know what happened to Mia, I had to take breaks from reading. I'm sensitive to these types of books and I rarely choose to read them because I have a hard time distancing myself from the story. This book may keep you up at night, both from the subject matter and because you will have to keep reading. I can't give away any of the details because you truly have to process this story as you read it. The twists and turns take you all the way to the very end of the story. When you get to that final page, if you are like me, you will realize you have been holding your breath and thankfully, you can finally breathe again. REMEMBER MIA is Burt's first novel with, hopefully, more to come. Favorite quote:"There are moments of joy in everybody's life. Happiness, like sadness, comes wrapped in many layers." "Just like memories.""Just like memories," he says. Page 144

    For a long time I wasn't sure what to think of this book. The unreliable narrator made me dread what was coming. Then I bought into the idea, told myself the author couldn't let the worst happen, and I ended up really enjoying this book. The story starts out with the mother of a missing 7-month-old girl getting dragged from a terrible car accident, and she can't remember anything about the accident or what happened to her baby. We find out, mostly through the mother's memories and flashbacks, that she has a troubled marriage and a lack of concern for her daughter's possible whereabouts largely due to undiagnosed post-partum depression. After the mother heals her husband talks her into checking into a psychiatric clinic to try to regain her old self and her memory about what happened to her daughter and the car accident, and the reader goes on the journey with her. Being a mother myself, I had quite a dreadful feeling about what happened to this baby, but I eventually turned a corner and had to believe in the main character and the author that neither of them would let something unthinkable happen to this baby. This is a scary look into post-partum depression and how it affects mothers and marriages. I won this book via Library Thing.

    A good psychological thriller, but a bit confusing at times. This is a novel about a disturbed mother of a missing baby. The mother has post partum depression and questions herself about how her child might have disappeared. The story has lots of twists and turns but a few loose ends. I am not sure I liked the ending!

    This book started off great. I so wanted to know what happened to seven-month-old Mia. Not only does Mia disappear from her crib, but all of her things are gone too. Mia's mother, Estelle, was found days later, barely alive, at the bottom of a ravine, hours away from home, with bits and pieces of her memory.

    But then the story draaaaaagged onnn. My eyes were reading but my brain was somewhere else, so I had to re-read a lot of paragraphs. I found it jumped around a bit, but that could be me as I lost and gained interest. I did not like the ending. This book was very disappointing.

    This is the story of a missing infant girl whose mother is the central focus of the disappearance as she suffers from an injury caused is a car accident that causes amnesia. The primary plot involves the dual issues of clearing her name and locating her missing child Mia. The novel is very steady and methodical with not a lot of ups and downs. Estelle (the mother) is dogged in her pursuit and ultimately the conclusion is satisfying. Nice first novel.

    Estelle Paradise wakes up in the hospital after a horrific car accident and some sort of attack with no memory of how she got there. She quickly discovers that her 7 month old daughter Mia has been missing for days. People across the country speculate that she murdered her child and label her convenient amnesia as a lie. The police doubt her story and put her on the top of the suspect list. Even her own husband accuses her of being at fault and essentially abandons her. She checks into a psychiatric care facility with a stellar memory recover therapist in order to find out what happened. What happened to her baby and what happened to her?Remember Mia brings to life a parent's worst nightmare: a defenseless baby is missing and no one knows what happened. The narrative follows Estelle as she uncovers what happened. The story moves quickly and keeps momentum throughout. I had to know what happened. Estelle is a typical mother. Her baby developed colic a few months in and never recovered. Mia cries and screams all day long no matter what Estelle does. It has worn on her and she's become depressed. Estelle was so excited to have a baby, but the reality is much harder than she imagined. After calling every specialist and having them all tell her the same thing about Mia, her husband draws the line and puts her on antidepressants. She starts losing track of time, forgetting things, and making horrible decisions. In this situation, it's so easy to look in from the outside and call her a bad mom, but she probably has post-partum depression and has no support system at all since her parents died and she doesn't seem to have any friends. I liked Estelle and mostly felt sorry for her. Her mental state makes it hard to tell what is real and what is in her mind.Although it's a very readable book, I had quite a few problems with the book. The work to recover Estelle's memory seems very easy and conveniently fast. The characters beyond Estelle are pretty one dimensional. Her husband is a self involved jerk who takes no responsibility for anything. I couldn't believe how horrible he was and it really called into question why she even married him in the first place. Even their very first meeting shows his true colors. The villains of the piece literally detailed their entire plan for Estelle like Bond villains. They are flatly evil and call her a bad mother while turning around and admittedly selling children to abusive households or criminals. The book jacket touts itself as similar to Gone Girl, but it's a pretty basic, straight forward story. The twists are few and far between. After the villains are revealed, the plot just becomes uninteresting. I thought the ending was much too convenient and the actual outcome would have been quite tragic.Overall, I like Remember Mia, but it's a beach read with not a lot of rereadability. It was an interesting adventure, but not terribly complex.

    Remember Mia by Alexandra Burt is a captivating suspense thriller that will not disappoint. Estelle, mother to 7-month-old Mia, wakes up after being found left for dead in a gorge, but she has only a fuzzy recollection of recent events. Mia had gone missing a few days earlier and not a trace of evidence was left behind. Desperate, Estelle embarks on a frantic search to find Mia while she becomes the point of focus of the police investigation into Mia’s disappearance. Intricately crafted, Burt’s writing keeps readers’ attention as Estelle seeks out answers about what had happened to her, and most importantly, to her daughter. With an ending that is nearly impossible to foretell, suspense lovers will truly enjoy Remember Mia.
