Reviews : Mistaken Identity Book By The Van Ryn family

The circumstances described in this book was fascinating to read about. I felt extremely sad for the Van Ryn family because I knew they had been living under the impression that their daughter was still alive, but I also knew that one day they would discover that she had actually passed away and been buried.

When I was reading this novel, I genuinely sobbed for them. I feel sorry because of the grief experienced by Whitney’s family when they believed their daughter had passed away. They had a wonderful sensation to balance things out because they knew they would soon find their daughter was alive and that they would feel joy that most people will never feel because of this unique happening. Highly advised for reading!
