The Missing

Length: 240 pages4 hours


Juliet’s skills as an artist and painter are reflected everywhere in this haunting, poetic novel. At the heart of the story is a journalist, Frances, who sets out on the trail of another possible Anastasia but whose own history makes as much of an appearance as the elusive duchess. The writing is rich and vivid; you can linger over descriptions of the twisting back streets of Paris and visualise the women who sew gloves and hats in a Paris atelier. Packed with atmosphere, there is a powerful sense of place as Frances’s own memories come back to haunt her.
A deliciously descriptive book that questions the notion of memories and the idea of believing what you want to believe.
