Missing

Product Details




By Lindsay Harrison


I was immediately drawn into this memoir, and haunted by it after I was through reading it. It is an unforgettable story.

Lindsay's mother suddenly goes missing. As Lindsay and her family track her actions, searching for her, other things are revealed as well.

The tragic events that Lindsay shares with us are intimate and difficult, yet she shares these with sensitivity and honesty.

Lindsay learns things not only about her mother, but also about herself. She begins to understand her family and the relationships within it, that make it what it is. Her love for mother is a focal point. It is obvious and poignant. This book is much more than the confusing and complex search for her suddenly missing mother. It is more about a daughter searching to understand her mother, who she is and who she really was. It is easy to forget that out parents are people.

Lindsay Harrison’s memoir is so heartbreaking and beautiful, that it will stay with you. It will make you   look at your own family and relationships, while you still can. And it should.

  1. I am intrigued. Last year my son's girlfriend's mother went missing (by her own choice) and it was awful for the GF. The mother has since returned but is still estranged from the family.
