Synopsis

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Before too long she's staying the night at this house and being introduced to his nine year old daughter. Poppy is precocious and pretty - and meeting her completely takes Laurel's breath away. Because Poppy is the spitting image of Ellie when she was that age. And now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. What happened to Ellie? Where did she go? Who still has secrets to hide?

Reviews

'Every time I think Lisa has peaked she goes and ups her game. Then She Was Gone is sublime.' -- Tammy Cohen

'Only Lisa Jewell could have written such a dark, uncompromising psychological thriller while still making it uplifting, and warm and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone.' -- Rachel Rhys

'If you're looking for something darker and twistier Girl On The Train style, Lisa Jewell's new thriller, Then She Was Gone ... is one to buy' Voucher Codes

About the Author

Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact, she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph’s Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Twelve bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch, and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done.
