What’s up next? Elizabeth is Missing, by Emma Healey

I saw this debut novel reviewed by my blogging friend, The Perfectionist Pen, (theperfectionistpen.wordpress.com), and I knew it was something I’d want to read. I’m about seventy pages into the story and the only thing I want to do today is sit and read the whole thing!

It’s the story of Maud, who is nearly lost in a world of elderly dementia. She is struggling to understand what has happened to her lifelong friend, Elizabeth. Maud’s daughter and caregivers don’t take her worry seriously.  Surely she is just confused about things.  But Maud is certain something has happened. As she searches for clues, with limited abilities, she’s reminded of the mystery behind her sister, Sukie’s disappearance, shortly after World War II. Clear memories from the past occupy her mind and Maud’s muddled sense of reality places her in a sad and moving position.

This first person narrative takes place in England and is told through Maud’s point of view. It’s a look into the confused perceptions of a woman who is losing her grip of the present, but is holding on for her dear friend, Elizabeth. I’m looking forward to seeing how this story unfolds!

  1. Hi
    May I hope that you can review my historical fiction? I published a Korean War novel The Dance of the Spirits on Amazon. The book won the 2014 eLit Awards sponsored by Jenkins Group. The book tells a story of a forbidden love in a forgotten war and received positive reviews from Kirkus Reviews, San Francisco Reviews, Midwest Book Review, and a few reputable literature blogs.

    Best wishes to you and yours
