- Book Review - Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell
Ellie, fifteen, is smart, in love, and preparing for her exams. She convinces her reluctant but indulging mother she needs a tutor for her maths exams. Little does she know, hiring that tutor will change everything, and not in a good way. The tutor brings little treats and tries hard to make Ellie like her, but Ellie soon tires of the tutor and convinces her mother to let the woman go. Soon after, Ellie disappears. The story picks up ten years later.
Thank you! Ten years after her teenage daughter went missing, a mother begins a new relationship only to discover she can't truly move on until she answers lingering questions about the past. She drifted away from her other two children, Hanna and Jake, and eventually she and her husband, Paul, divorced. Both of these sections primarily focus on Laurel. All of these devices serve to build palpable tension, but the structure also contributes to how deeply disturbing the story becomes. At times, the characters and the emotional core of the events are almost obscured by such quick maneuvering through the weighty plot.
I was so excited to read and review it! She had her whole life ahead of her.
