Jemima Forbes is seven when a mysterious event occurs and her father and uncle disappear from her life. She felt neglected by her mother and ignored by her father but she was close to her uncle. She spends her growing years obsessing about the disappearance of her uncle and when she is old enough, leaves home to try and find out what happened.
It was a little hard for me to believe Jemima could be so naive into adulthood. It seemed her frustration and anger would have compelled her to insist on answers. And where were her friends and classmates?
I saw the big reveal at the end coming. It wasn't really a surprise. But I was left wondering how she would handle the revelation and go on with her life.
This was a beautifully written story, made even better by the outstanding performance of Jennifer Gill. It really enhanced my enjoyment of this audiobook.
