81 year old Maud finds a note in her pocket that reads ‘Elizabeth is missing.’ The writing is her own but she cannot remember ever having written such a message. Maud is determined, despite her failing memory, to get to the bottom Elizabeth’s disappearance, a mystery closely linked to the unresolved vanishing of her sister, Suky, just after the end of the war.

With compassion, and fine writing, Emma Healey helps us to gain a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s through the voice of Maud, her strikingly original and compelling creation. Elizabeth is Missing is a gripping mystery, both warm and harrowing in its depiction of Alzheimer’s and the trials those affected must face.
