The Lost Child By Ann Troup

What They Say:

Mandy Miller disappeared from Hallow’s End when she was just three years old. She was never found.

Thirty years on, Elaine Ellis is carrying her mother’s ashes back to Hallow’s End to scatter them in the place that she once called home. Elaine has never been there, but it’s the only place Jean talked about while she was growing up – so it seems as good a place as any.

As Elaine settles into her holiday cottage in the peaceful Devonshire village, she gets to know the locals; family she never knew she had; eccentric and old-fashioned gentry, and new friends where she would least expect them. But she is intrigued by the tale of the missing girl that the village still carries at its heart, and which somehow continues to overshadow them all. Little does she know how much more involved in the mystery she will become…

What I Say:

I would like to thank you to Carina for approving me to read this on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When Elaine Ellis's mother dies the only place she can think of going is to where her mother grew up and talked about all the time.  As Elaine settles into her holiday cottage, she meets Brodie who is wise beyond her years but also vulnerable.

The main story of the missing girl is weaved through the story and this is written in a fast pace that I found I really enjoyed the whole book.

4 out of 5 stars
