Item Description...
Fourteen-year-old Jed Pepper searches for answers about his best friend Daisy Chance, whose abrupt disappearance haunts the small town of Defiance, Texas.

Publishers Description
The abrupt disappearance of young Daisy Chance from a small Texas town in 1973 spins three lives out of control---Jed, whose guilt over not protecting his friend Daisy strangles him; Emory Chance, who blames her own choices for her daughter's demise; and Ouisie Pepper, who is plagued by headaches while pierced by the shattered pieces of a family in crisis. In this first book in the Defiance, Texas Trilogy, fourteen-year-old Jed Pepper has a sickening secret: He's convinced it's his fault his best friend Daisy went missing. Jed's pain sends him on a quest for answers to mysteries woven through the fabric of his own life and the lives of the families of Defiance, Texas. When he finally confronts the terrible truths he's been denying all his life, Jed must choose between rebellion and love, anger and freedom. Daisy Chain is an achingly beautiful southern coming-of-age story crafted by a bright new literary talent. It offers a haunting yet hopeful backdrop for human depravity and beauty, for terrible secrets and God's surprising redemption.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Captivating story line and characters  Apr 28, 2010
I got this book when it was free for the Kindle since it was of the genre I usually like to read.
The story is captivating from the very beginning. The author has developed characters that immediately draw you into the story. The story of a young girl, Daisy, gone missing, and the subsequent guilt of her young friend, Jed, grabs your attention quickly, and the book becomes a real page-turner.
This is the first book in a triology, so the ending leaves you wanting more. I took the bait, and bought the second book, A Slow Burn, and I have found myself just as engrossed in the continuing story. I'm sure I will buy the third book due out May 11.
I do usually enjoy reading Christian books. However, some authors can go overboard and seem to try too hard to make it a Christian book, and every other sentence is a scripture, etc., until the book looses it's story line and becomes unnatural. However, this author has balanced the message she's trying to relate with the story line very well. You don't feel like you're being preached to, as it all comes very naturally to the characters. This kind of book is rewarding to read, and leaves you thinking, but not feeling "preached at".
I have thoroughly enjoyed both books, and look forward to the final third book.
Sad book, disappointing ending  Apr 19, 2010
Daisy Chain deals with many of the negative emotions that teens face, but in a very grisly and sad format without a definite ending. Is this real life? Yes. Is this something I want to read about? Not unless I were living through many of the same things, such as disappearance of a friend and an abusive home life. Without giving away too much of the ending, there are a lot of loose ends left hanging.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that this is a well written book but not my cup of tea. I don't like getting sad for the sake of getting sad.
eh....  Apr 17, 2010
I don't even know where to start, and thats saying something. It was just OK. I felt sympathy for the characters, and finished it because I was intent on finding out about Daisy...but...withought giving much away, I'll just say you are left wanting. This is more spiritual than anything else. If you are reading for a good mystery, then this is not for you. It's more of a tale of what happens to people in aftermath. I can't help but feel this book just exists to suck you in to the series, and well frankly, I didnt care enough about the characters to keep reading more books. I like stories that can exist independently in a series, which this does not. I could get on board with a series that has a specific plot for each book, but I fear all of these will just keep adding on to what you already know...not for me...
Looking forward to the next in series!  Apr 14, 2010
I wasn't prepared to really like this book, as I don't generally read fiction. I can honestly say, from the first page, Mary DeMuth, completely captivated me and kept me engrossed in the story---wanting to find out what happened next. I didn't think that a fiction book could contain the relevant messages, found here, but was pleasantly surprised. Keep writing Mary! Can't wait to read the next in series.
Did I miss something?  Mar 29, 2010
I have to wonder.... was I reading the same book that got the 4 plus reviews? I enjoy reading "Christian literature" so the subject matter wasn't a problem. But really, this story line was s-l-o-w to the point of redundancy. I kept reading thinking it would go somewhere. At 50 % read I found myself wondering how much more time I wanted to invest in the plot. At 69% I caved and said, "enough already!" Will Daisy ever be found? I'll never know and frankly, I don't care.....yawn!
