From the Back Cover:

Alma wakes one ordinary morning to find her world has fallen apart. Her beloved teenage daughter Zoe has run away from home. On the landing is a curt note that explains nothing. What on earth has caused her to leave so suddenly? Where can she have gone? To the sorrow and anger of her husband Paul and student son Adam, Alma responds by completely rejecting them. As she plunges into a very different way of life, setting out on a new career and attracting new men along the way, Alma finds herself continually distracted by an ever deeper need to explore the past. What can she have done to Zoe to make her run away? What about her own childhood – what lies hidden? And, insistent, heart-wrenching, the most pressing question of all: will Zoe ever come home?

“Maggie Gee writes very well indeed … with passages of visionary intensity and great tenderness of feeling.”
SUNDAY TIMES

“'Lost Children' is a story with heart-warming tugs of reality … a poignant examination of the trials of family life and the life-long process of growing up.”
COMPANY

“'Lost Children' is the most elegiac of Maggie Gee’s novels. Her great achievement is to demonstrate how oppressed women are not inevitably sweet.”
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

“A compelling novel of great relevance. Gee is exceptionally successful in her attempt to breathe life into a broad range of characters without ever relying on caricature.”
THE TIMES

“'Lost Children' is an engaging and deeply perceptive novel. This is a triumphantly tender vision.”
LITERARY REVIEW

Also available in Flamingo: 'Dying, In Other Words, The Burning Book' and 'Light Years'
