Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Elizabeth Is Missing, the debut novel by Emma Healey, is billed as a mystery but is more so the story of 80 year old Maud's decline into dementia. The book draws well the image of a woman trying to hold onto the fragments of her memory, and in doing so, solve the mystery of her sister's disappearance decades ago. It is a sad story that could have been told as a short story or novella.
