Earlier this year I saw The Foundling on Netgalley and thought I’d try it out. I’d never heard Paul Fronczak’s story and was quickly pulled in. It became a real page turner.
The Foundling by Paul Fronczak is a true story about a boy strayed at childhood and connected to a kidnapping. I was extremely engaged because I’d never heard this story. The book quickly turns into a search through his past and continues on that path until the final conclusion.
I had to learn what was going to happen with Paul. I wasn’t happy with many of Paul’s choices, but had high hopes for him, and understand how one needs to know their origins. I agreed with his wife in that he was not necessarily wasting his time, but that it would possibly never come to an end, and that there might always be unanswered questions.
I found many parts sad and can’t imagine how arduous his journey must’ve been. In the end, I felt sorry for him and his family. He spent so much time on a group of people that didn’t seem to want anything to do with him.
I do understand, in my own way, how Paul felt as I’ve had a similar experience, but at some point I suppose you have to accept things for the way they are.
It’s certainly a page turner.
4**** and glad to have read it…
Thanks to Netgalley for a copy in exchange for a review.
