How To Be Lost: A Novel Kindle Edition
To their neighbours in suburban Holt, New York, the Winters family has it all: a grand home, a trio of radiant daughters and a sense of security in their affluent corner of America.But when five-year-old Ellie disappears, the fault lines within the Winters family are exposed.
Fifteen years later, Caroline, now a New Orleans cocktail waitress, sees a photograph of a woman in People Magazine. Convinced that it is Ellie all grown up, Caroline embarks on a search for her missing sister. As she travels through the New Mexico desert, the mountains of Colorado, and the smoky underworld of Montana, she devotes herself to salvaging her broken family.
How To Be Lost is a spellbinding novel about sisters, family secrets - and love.
'The narrative is so engrossing, so propelling, you're surprised to come upon the last page...a damn good story.' ― Time Out New York
'A walloping knockout of a finisher that would seem like a cheap trick if it weren't so thrilling. The author plays a smooth game, not showing her hand until the absolute right time.' ― Kirkus
'This is one of those sink-your-teeth-into-it novels that reminds you why you loved to read in the first place.' ― The Charlotte Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Then another voice comes into the novel; Agnes Fowler, who we get to know through her letters to various people and in particular to her Husky Alaskan. She is a great character, quirky and a rather eccentric if perhaps a bit too open about her life and thought!. There are also some minor characters, Caroline's friends in New Orleans, who give the story a further touch of lightness and humour.
The novel has some great twists and turns. I look forward to reading more works by this author
It's a beautifully written story about 3 sisters and their journey.
It's poignant and sad at times but definitely worth a few emotional moments.
If you're a sister read it!!
