Synopsis

Stories in The Missing Woman circle around women who are either literally missing - a mother in rehab, a daughter never born - or who are missing some metaphorical piece of themselves. A father tries to convince his uncompromising,anorexic daughter to want to live, a single woman lures men to her bed only to abandon them, and a marriage is shaken by a search party for a woman who's disappeared. Burns asks questions about balance - safety with adventure - dreams with practicality - grief with joy - and challenges the reader to take a journey, make choices...
