Lucy Durant was only fourteen-years-old when she lost her older brother. First to his paranoid delusions as he became increasingly obsessed with UFOs and government conspiracies. Then, permanently, when he walked into the desert outside Bishop, California, and never returned.
Now on the tenth anniversary of Nolan’s mysterious disappearance, Lucy is still struggling with guilt and confusion—her memories from that period are blurry and obscured by time, distance, and alcohol. Now an adult, she’s stuck in a holding pattern, hiding out at her father’s house, avoiding people, and doing whatever she can to keep herself from thinking about Nolan. But when a series of unsettling events leads Lucy back to Bishop, she is forced to reconcile with her estranged mother and come to terms with the tangled memories of her past to discover what really happened to her brother all those years ago.
The author does a masterful job of keeping the narrative balanced…The reader should trust no one and question all. Perfect for fans of Joyce Maynard and Jennifer McMahon.
Everything We Lost is a powerful study in obsession…a powerful work of psychological suspense that makes for a compelling read, whether you believe we are being visited by aliens or, like me, very much doubt it.
