A Sunday Times Top Five Bestseller and chosen for the Waterstones Book Club 2014, Elizabeth is Missing is the stunning debut novel from author Emma Healey. An ancient noise, like a fox bark, makes an attempt at the edges of my brain. “Elizabeth?” I ask… Meet Maud. Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn't remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognizable - or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger. But there's one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it. Because somewhere in Maud's damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about. Everyone, except Maud… The subject of a bidding war between nine publishers, Emma Healey’s debut novel became one of the most talked-about books of 2014. Described by the Independent as ‘an extraordinary tale of ordinary tragedy’ Elizabeth is Missing is a compelling mystery which – through its depiction of its confused 90 year old narrator Maud – walks sensitively through new imaginative territory. A moving, intriguing journey following the breadcrumbs of the past, it will keep you glued to every page.
