Missing persons

lostThe Lost Girls” by Heather Young, begins in 1935, when six-year-old Emily Evans vanishes from her family home on a remote Minnesota lake.  Sixty years later, her sister leaves the house, still haunted by its past, along with the story of her sister’s disappearance, to her niece. Young’s story is “bracingly observant, psychologically astute, and suspenseful (Alice Mattison).’“Good as Gone” by Amy Gentry is about a kidnapped girl who turns up on her parent’s doorstep after eight long years.  As the shock and euphoria wears off, her mother begins to suspect that the young woman is not really her long lost daughter. Author Gentry “delivers …with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well-executed plot twists (Kirkus Reviews).”
