Another great novel from the bestselling Cecilia. Very different from her previous books, this one has more in common with The Lovely Bones than her other relationship tales such as PS I Love You. The idea behind the novel is lovely, a place where all the odd socks end up, along with everything and everyone who gets lost. A real joy, as ever.

If you like Cecelia Ahern you might also like to read books by Anna Maxted, Cathy Kelly and Christina Courtenay.

Synopsis

A Place Called Here by Cecelia Ahern

Since Sandy Shortt's childhood schoolmate disappeared twenty years ago, Sandy has been obsessed with missing things. Finding becomes her goal - whether it's the odd sock that vanished in the washing machine, the car keys she misplaced in her rush to get to work or the graver issue of finding the people who vanish from their lives. Sandy dedicates her life to finding these missing people, offering devastated families a flicker of hope.

Jack Ruttle is one of those desperate people. It's been a year since his brother Donal vanished into thin air and the sleepless nights and frantic days aren't getting any easier. Thinking Sandy Shortt could well be the answer to his prayers, he embarks on a quest to find her.

But when Sandy goes missing too, her search ends when she stumbles upon the place - and people - she's been looking for all of her life. A world away from her loved ones and the home she ran from for so long, Sandy soon resorts to her old habit again, searching. Though this time, she is desperately trying to find her way home…
