Any "Author Information" displayed below reflects the author's biography at the time this particular book was published. The mendacious mercurial nature of some characters in this book will rattle you to the extent of even making you nihilistic. If you've been active in the book community at all this month then you're sure to have noticed that Then She Was Gone is an April Pick by Book Of The Month, so naturally this is one that's being hyped for a reason-it's just that good! Although parts of the story are a little bizarre (Jewell says this herself in the Acknowledgements), she makes it work. She never in a million years could have predicted the shocking revelations her inquiries would uncover or the personal epiphanies that would change Laurel's life forevermore.

She never gives her hopes up and fixated to find her in expanse of tearing up her own family, parting her ways with her husband, estranging with her two other kids. As soon as their relationship become serious and she forms true bounding with Poppy, she surprisingly finds out the birth mother Noelle of Poppy who left her is the same woman who has tutored her daughter Ellie. And even though I had an inkling about where this was going, it didn't diminish my pleasure in this read at all.But it's fiction and it's part of a story and that's why it worked -- the writing supports it and carries you off into a world you cannot leave. Floyd‘s family has a precocious daughter, Poppy, who looks like Ellie and a sister that is quite different. But the hints of other crimes Tempe’s identification uncovers, particularly crimes against children, spur her on to redouble her efforts despite the new M.

When she meets his teenage daughter, she can’t shake the feeling of how much she reminds her of her beloved Ellie. It is forbidden to copy anything for publication elsewhere without written permission from the copyright holder. S. Geological Survey, leading to “immediate suspension of the National Volcano Early Warning System,” and there’s always someone around looking to monetize the natural disaster and the sasquatch-y onslaught that follows. I wasn’t satisfied with the ending as there were still storylines that weren’t completely tied up and explained.Someone once mooted the theory that Hanna felt too guilty to have a boyfriend because her little sister would never have one. After starting this novel I couldn’t quit, her writing is just so compelling, those of the words I would use to describe it! This and another small coincidence, puts new thoughts into Laurel’s head, prompting her to do a little amateur sleuthing. Laurel's life stalled, her marriage fell apart and the relationship with her two remaining children is strained. Then Laurel is introduced to his little girl: Poppy, and she is dumbfounded to discover that Poppy bears a striking resemblance to Ellie, her Ellie.

Then She Was Gone was fine as an undemanding beach thriller, but I wouldn't recommend it for readers looking for something new and innovative. This was a quick read but unlikable and ridiculous, hard to believe characters made it difficult for me to believe a word. Lisa Jewell is a brilliant storyteller and I will be recommending this book for an emotional, suspenseful, and captivating read. As Laurel unravels the horrors of Poppy's origins and Floyd's true intentions, she comes to terms with the loss of her daughter and reconciling with the children she still has. Laurel, Ellie's mother, is struggling to get her life back on track and save her relationships with her two remaining children.How the author balances both stories and interweaves them into an amazingly realistic and beautiful conclusion can only be described in a word as brilliant. The writing is strong, but it's disappointing when you figure out all the major reveals in the first few chapters and even get the reasons behind them. Publication information is for the USA, and (unless stated otherwise) represents the first print edition. And another surprising thing about this man is her 9 years old daughter named Poppy who lives with her, has great resemblance with her deceased daughter.

How can we understand that our partner is an ideal candidate for providing mutual love or unconditional love? Populated with fantastic characters, this was a fascinating and moving story about obsession, loss, and family.maybe i wont be playing the whole ‘predict what happens based on the synopsis only’ game because it turns out i only got 1 out of 4 guesses right and its not a good look for my ego. Laurel's voice is so realististic, raw, and sympathetic, she nearly had me believing she was a real person and that this was a true story.
