#SundayStatus: I'd Know You Anywhere

Sunday Status is a weekly (ish) post where I let you know what I'm reading and what I'm thinking about it as I go along.

I've narrowed down my three books from last week to just one for now.

I'd Know You Anywhere
Laura Lippman
William Morrow, 2010

Eliza Benedict has moved on with her life, but when she receives a letter from the man who held her captive as a teenager, she's torn back into the past.  He saw a picture of her and her husband in the paper and found someone who would write a letter for him and send it to her from jail.  She's not sure how to handle this, but Walter is set to be executed soon for the murder of the other young girls he killed.

I started this earlier on in the week, but haven't had a chance to really delve into it, so that's about all I know.  One thing that's bothering me right now is the voice.  It's a story told in both present day and through flashbacks and it isn't the flashbacks that are bothering me, but the present day parts from the main character's point of view.  Sometimes it seems to skip around, but not quite and I find myself pulled back for a moment wondering whose point of view we're getting and what's going on. The flashbacks seem much more grounded. Can't tell if this is going to pan out and there is a reason for it, but I'll let you know when I finish.
