Romance, Adventure, Suspense
The novel has the theme of searching. There is a search to regain a snapshot in time as well as searches to belong. Being hurt and excluded in our pasts are heavy burdens to carry. Living with our eye on the past prevents us from enjoying the present. We need to give our burdens and our pasts to the One who can make all things new.
This links to the theme of trust. After a crime is committed, suspicion needs to find an outlet. As the net widens and more ‘coincidences’ of bad luck happen, the question of trust looms large.
