A book for the weekend Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesnt remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognisable, or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger. But theres one thing Maud is sure of her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket says so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, Maud will get to the bottom of it. Because somewhere in Mauds damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy yearold mystery. One everyone has forgotten about. Everyone, except Maud....Both a heartbreakingly honest meditation on aging and a gripping psychological mystery, Elizabeth Is Missing is a fascinating debut novel.
