I have pre-ordered THE LOST GIRL by Carol Drinkwater.
Why is this significant? Well, I have to admit I do not pre-order books. However, from devouring the author’s bestselling Olive Series and her superb novel THE FORGOTTEN SUMMER, I just know that this book is going to be wonderful (read my review of THE FORGOTTEN SUMMER here).
When THE LOST GIRL is published, in the UK, on 29th June, I want to be able to dive straight into it and not come up for air until I have finished it.
Here is the book blurb from Amazon UK:
Her daughter disappeared four years ago. . .
Since her daughter went missing four years earlier, celebrated photographer Kurtiz Ross has been a woman alone. Her only companion her camera. Since Lizzie disappeared, she has blamed and isolated herself, given up hope. Until, out of the blue, an unexpected sighting of Lizzie is made in Paris.
Could this lead to the reconciliation she has dreamed of?
Within hours of Kurtiz arriving in Paris, the City of Light is plunged into a night of hell when a series of terrorist attacks bring the city to a standstill. Amid the fear and chaos, a hand reaches out. A sympathetic stranger in a café offers to help Kurtiz find her daughter.
A stranger’s guiding light
Neither knows what this harrowing night will deliver, but the other woman’s kindness – and her stories of her own love and loss in post-war Provence – shine light into the shadows, restoring hope, bringing the unexpected. Out of darkness and despair, new life rises. New beginnings unfold.
Dare she believe in a miracle?
Set during a time of bloodshed and chaos in one of the most beautiful cities on earth and along the warm fragrant shores of the Mediterranean, Kurtiz discovers that miracles really can happen.
The Lost Girl is a heartrending story of loss and enduring love.
