"Masterful...A big story about human connection and emotional survival" - Los Angeles Times 

The first book ever chosen by Oprah's Book Club

Few first novels receive the kind of attention and acclaim showered on this powerful story—a nationwide bestseller, a critical success, and the first title chosen for Oprah's Book Club. Both highly suspenseful and deeply moving, The Deep End of the Ocean imagines every mother's worst nightmare—the disappearance of a child—as it explores a family's struggle to endure, even against extraordinary odds. Filled with compassion, humor, and brilliant observations about the texture of real life, here is a story of rare power, one that will touch readers' hearts and make them celebrate the emotions that make us all one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Deep End of the Ocean Marvellously well written book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep End of the Ocean I thought that this book was very well written and worth the read. Jacquelyn wrote very well about the deep effects it can have on a family when a member goes missing. You share and feel loss, pain, fear, love, happiness, rewards, heartbreak, confusion, etc... All the emotions that each character goes through. I enjoyed this book and hope that you will as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok I found that this novel did not live up to its rave reviews. At times, the writing was confusing, and drawn out. Perhaps the novel would have impacted me more if I was a mother.
