APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lisa Jewell has described her 15th novel as her “darkest to date” and we wouldn’t disagree. It’s also one of her most compelling. Then She Was Gone is set a decade after Laurel Mack’s 15-year-old daughter Ellie disappeared without warning or trace. As a truly disturbing picture of what happened to Ellie begins to emerge, Jewell crafts a psychological thriller that’s also a considered examination of loss. We were gripped to the very last page.
