Elizabeth Is Missing
Maud's sister, Sukey, also disappeared many years ago and was never heard from again. What happened to the two women? Is there a connection between the two disappearances?
Emma Healey has written a fascinating debut novel. She writes compassionately about the confusion of dementia but injects a little humour that lightens what could have been a been a very depressing story. Maud is a lovable heroine who sticks to her guns even if she forgets why she's dug in her heels. Elizabeth Is Missing is a well-crafted whodunit and I look forward to reading more from this author.
