Synopsis

Those months, the months before she disappeared were the best months. Really. Just the best. She was fifteen, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone. Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet. But what really takes her breath away is when she meets his nine-year-old daughter. Because his daughter is the image of Ellie. Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide? British author Lisa Jewell’s first book, Ralph's Party, came out in 1998. Since then, she’s gone on to write a range of fiction including her so-called 'curry and flatmates' novels of the nineties and noughties such as: Thirtynothing, A Friend of the Family and Vince & Joy, as well as challenging contemporary fiction and thrillers including: After The Party, The Making of Us, The Third Wife, The Girls, I Found You, Before I Met You  and Then She Was Gone.
