Sarah Gallagher was a mother, had a small business refinishing furniture and was engaged to be married. She should have been on top of the world, but she was troubled. Sarah was adopted and although she had a wonderful loving mother and two sisters she had always felt that she just didn’t fit in. The relationship she shared with her father was less than ideal and in her eyes he treating her differently than his “real” daughters. Sarah had questions and only her birth mother could answer them.
When the private investigator she hired located her birth mother and Sarah contacted her, only to have the phone hung up on her and the door practically slammed in her face, perhaps she should have taken the hint. Why did her mother hate her so much? Why had her birth mother found it necessary to change her name? No matter how much her fiance begged her to do so, Sarah could not let it go.
Sarah was horrified to learn that her mother was the only woman to survive an assault by the Campsite Killer, and worse yet, she was the result of that attack. The Campsite Killer was her father! Was that why she had such a temper? Was she like her father?
Before Sarah knew what was happening the story had been leaked and it was all over the internet. What would happen if her father, the murderer saw the story? What would he do if he found out that he not only was a father, he was a grandfather. How could Sarah protect her family, when no one knew the identity or whereabouts of this “still wanted” serial killer? How about her birth mother? No wonder she hated her! What would she do when she found out that after all these years of hiding her identity was also revealed.
Never Knowing is not divided into chapters, it is divided into therapy sessions. Yes, Sarah is in therapy. If she didn’t need it before, she certainly would need it now that her serial killer birth father was actually contacting her on a regular basis! Never Knowing may not be a work of literature, however it is an exciting, fun ride and certainly a page turner!
