Stolen
    2017-August-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

“Stolen,” written by Lucy Christopher, is a compelling* story written from the point of view of Gemma, a 16-year-old girl who was kidnapped in Bangkok Airport on her way to Vietnam with her parents, in the form of a letter.

Af first, she kind of recognizes Ty, her kidnapper*, as he approaches her while she is ordering coffee at a nearby coffee shop. Ty waits for an opportune* time to first make his approach, and looking back it all seems to fit well with his timing. He makes smalltalk as he is waiting for his moment and then the action begins.

She regains full consciousness in a rustic* house deep in the Australian Outback with Ty.

Ty never sexually abuses her, but she is truly a captive. Little by little, Ty wears down her defenses as Gemma realizes that escape is impossible. Soon she discovers the stark power and vibrancy* of the wilderness and becomes absorbed in it. She also learns that Ty has been stalking* her for years, devising a crafty plan to steal her away to make her love him which she in the end believes she does.

Ty’s capture, taming, and release of a female camel parallels Gemma’s ordeal*. Her unique first-person narrative is written to Ty after her release. Both characters are as vivid as the desert setting in which they are immersed. Despite the fact that Ty is a kidnapper, the revelations about his difficult youth and his usually caring behavior allow readers, like Gemma, to eventually care about him. (SD-Agencies)
