My Thoughts: Ripple deals with some really tough issues. Even after reading the description of this book I was shocked by what had happened to Helen's daughter, Phoebe. I hurt for both Helen and for Phoebe. E.L Farris wrote characters that I could care about, and I had to find out what would happen to them in the end.
Helen was a very no-nonsense woman. Her career was a huge priority for her. When she learns what happened to Phoebe she starts to go through a major transformation. I liked her as a no-nonsense woman, so I am happy that she stayed that way, but the change in her priorities made her a better mother and I can imagine a better person. By the end of the book I had a lot of hope for her future.
I found Phoebe to be a strong character. Considering everything she was going through, she was still very strong. She had passion, could have an attitude in a snap, and she was rebellious. She showed a lot of growth through the book, thanks to all the amazing women that she was surrounded with, and thanks to finding her inner strength in a time of need.
I loved the other characters in the book. The women from the safe house were so great. I loved their banter and the love they had for the women they were helping. The other lawyers and the therapists were amazing, too. All of these people cared so much for Helen and Phoebe. The little back stories that filled the book helped to add so many dimensions to the book. The sociopath that lurks was terrifying. I was so afraid through the book that he would not be found or stopped. It kept me on the edge of my seat.
Farris wrote such a heartbreaking beginning and then took readers through a wild recovery process. There was so much suspense as the danger drew closer. I would suggest this book to any one who enjoys a good thriller and isn't afraid of tough issues. Ripple is well worth the read.
