The Day We Disappeared – Lucy Robinson



Blurb: Annie has a secret. But if she’s not going to tell, we won’t either. It’s a heart-breaking secret she wishes she didn’t have – yet Annie isn’t broken, not quite yet. Especially now there’s someone out there who seems determined to fix her. Kate has run away. But she’s not going to tell us why – that would defeat the point of running, wouldn’t it? It’s proving difficult to reinvent herself, however, with one person always on her mind. Scratch beneath the surface and nobody is really who they seem. Even Annie and Kate, two old friends, aren’t entirely sure who they are any more. Perhaps you can work it out, before their pasts catch up with them for good…A gripping and unpredictable story of two young women running from their pasts. We defy you to guess the twist…

Review: This was the first novel I have read of Lucy’s. It focuses on two women, Annie and Kate, who are running from their past. The book had me hooked, as throughout, I was waiting for their secrets to unfold. The characters are warm and likeable. And just when you think you’ve got a light, chick-lit read, Lucy throws in dark, realistic and relatable circumstances. And then there’s the twist, but you’ll have to find that out for yourself!
