In her short story THE GLASS CASE, Kristin Hannah explores the heart and mind of a mother – April Bannerman is a young mother of three, married to her high school sweetheart & living in the same town she grew up in. Although she loves her children and husband, April is plagued by the growing doubt that she has not lived up to the expectations of her own mother – who passed away years ago. When her youngest son goes missing one afternoon, April’s views on her own life – and what is most important – goes through a sudden transformation.
This was a cute story of April and her relationship with her mother prior to her death and her relationship with boyfriend turned husband Ryan and what happens when her son doesn’t come home from school. It was cute although I wish it was longer at only 38 pages and most of that was the promotion for her next book.
