Описание

Based on the experiences of real-life kidnapping victim Sally Horner and her captor, whose story shocked the nation and inspired Vladimir Nabokov to write his controversial and iconic Lolita, Rust & Stardust is a heart-pounding audiobook by award-winning author T. Greenwood, who at last gives a voice to Sally herself.

Camden, NJ, 1948. When 11 year-old Sally Horner steals a notebook from the local Woolworth's, she has no way of knowing that 52 year-old Frank LaSalle, fresh out of prison, is watching her, preparing to make his move. Accosting her outside the store, Frank convinces Sally that he's an FBI agent who can have her arrested in a minute—unless she does as he says.

This chilling audiobook traces the next two harrowing years as Frank mentally and physically assaults Sally while the two of them travel westward from Camden to San Jose, forever altering not only her life, but the lives of her family, friends, and those she meets along the way.

    What a story!! Deserves 10 stars! This book sounded intriguing when I listened to the sample, but I had NO IDEA what a sad, beautiful, mesmerizing, and ultimately tragic treat I was actually in for. Beautiful, impeccable, gorgeous writing depicting a fictionalized account of an all too true story, with one breathtaking performance by Thérèse Plummer. Absolutely very highly recommended!

    A very emotional retelling of the kidnapping of 11 year old Sally Horner. Although this is a fictionalized novel, the author took the time to research the true crime case and blend in as many facts into the storyline. She does explain, however, that she is not a true crime writer & this novel focusses on filling in the blanks to make a story that gives the reader more perspective on what others may have experienced as a result of Sally's kidnapping. The author does a great job blending fact & fiction and developing the characterisation that make readers feel that the emotions expressed are legitimate. Hearing the story told by differing POVs improves the storyline & takes the reader into the realm of what could have been Sally's reality. It is very easy to forget that this is a fictionalized novel as you become immersed in the story. I would suggest that you keep some tissues at hand, if you are listening to this very well narrated audiobook.
