"Entertaining Short Story"
Missing hours, a compulsion to stare at the sky, voices in
her head.... It was no wonder that Melinda's husband,
Frank, thought Melinda was losing her mind. Melinda, a
mother of five, goes into the barn one day to find a
missing cat and in turn goes missing herself for three
hours. As the days pass she starts hearing voices and
dreaming of things so upsetting that she wakes up
screaming. Agreeing to be admitted into the local hospital
for evaluation and treatment, both which she thinks she
doesn't need, Melinda soon discovers that it's not just the
weird figures in her dreams that she must be wary of, but
the doctor as well. Or are they just dreams? Melinda is
positive that aliens are abducting her. She knows it is
important to tell the world, but knows that no one will
believe her. Something is coming. Something important is
going to happen.
A story well written. It draws you in and keeps you there,
making you wonder if the main character really is losing
her mind, or if she really was abducted. You never really
know until the end and it leaves you wishing the story
would continue. I would definitely recommend this book.
