Chapter Thirty – The Lost Sister

The Lost Sister
by Tracy Buchanan

This was the first book by Tracy Buchanan that I have read. The blurb intrigued me and I was looking forward to reading it.

I thoroughly enjoy the story from both POV’s of the mother’s Selma from the 1990’s and from the daughter’s Becky from the present day.

This story line had my hooked from the very beginning, from the moment the strange man saves a drowning boy. There are so many twists and turns, it is going to have you turning pages to find out what happens next.

Selma leaves her husband Mike and daughter Becky and lives in a cave with Idris, the man who saved the boy from drowning. Selma was bored with her life and was struggling to write another book. I can never understand why a mother would leave their child and live in a cult.

Becky meets up with her estranged mother and a family secret is revealed. Beck is now on the hunt to find her lost sister and also to try to come to terms with her Mother leaving her as a child. I felt for Becky and what she was going through. Becky’s journey takes her to some interesting locations.

Tracy has written a gripping story, with detailed descriptions that you can picture as you read. This book has so many issued covered in it and some are not going to be to everyone’s liking.  Abandonment, family relationships, abuse and so much more.

The ending came as a complete shocking surprise. This is a heart-rending and thought-provoking book!!!

I highly recommend this book.
