I am truly and completely wow’ed!
From the moment I started Searching for Sylvie Lee, I found myself 100% captivated. This book centers around the Lee family, a Chinese family made up of a husband, wife and 2 daughters (Sylvie and Amy) who immigrated to the Untied States 30(ish) years ago. Their eldest daughter, Sylvie, travels to the Netherlands to be with her grandma in her final days and ultimately goes missing! It was at this point that I found this book unputdownable!
Throughout the novel Jean Kwok takes us between New York City and the Netherlands and the novel is told in three perspectives of Ma, Sylvie, and Amy. I felt that worked perfectly with the plot because it keeps the reader on the hook, but still an organic way to take us on their journey. Searching for Sylvie Lee is a 5 star read that seamlessly combines women’s fiction, mystery/suspense, and general fiction to create a compelling storyline that will stay with you! This fantastic novel would make a great book club selection! Must Read! I would like to thank the publisher for providing me this book in exchange for an honest review.
