Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell Book Summary


From the New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Girl and The Truth About Melody Browne comes a “riveting” (PopSugar) and “acutely observed family drama” (People) that delves into the lingering aftermath of a young girl’s disappearance.

Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. Beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers, and half of a teenaged golden couple. Ellie was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her.

And then she was gone.

Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?

Wow!!. So good! What a great story!

Page Turner. Couldn’t put this book down. Was on the edge of my seat the entire read.

Thrilling. This book is incredible. I could t stop reading it. It brought me to tears on more than one occasion. It is quite beautiful in its on very special way.

Good. A good read, kinda got the sense of what was going on kind of fast. It was good story though

Then she was Gone. Page turner. I figured it out but needed to see how it ended. Author does a great job keeping one in suspense.

Great read. Suspenseful, relatable, sad, joyful - this book had it all. Loved it.

Absolutely amazing!. Such a thrilling and captivating read!! Finished it in about 2 days - could not stop reading!!

Heart felt read. Full of emotional roller coasters

Then she was gone. Well written, a thriller, I couldn’t put it down! Somewhat dark and sad. I give it 5 stars and recommend it for my book club!

Painfully predictable. Poor, lazy writing. Every detail is over explained. The ending is obvious from the beginning.

Couldn’t get into it. I’ve tried reading this book a few times, but I couldn’t get into it. It’s probably an amazing book, but not for me.

Amazing. Absolutely Captivating

Must Read.. A page turner. I definitely teared up in the end, highly recommend.

No thanks. In the minority based on the 4 star average but I found this disturbing.

Horrible Book. A horrible book! Do not read it. This is very disturbing story, and not because it is a mystery or horror. I do not believe the events in this book should have ever been written about in the way they were. This book crossed a line that should not be crossed in a fiction novel.

Couldn’t put it down. If you are looking for a psychological thriller, this is it. A highly recommended must read!

It was ok. Figured it out very quickly.

Soooo good. Loved this book so much. I did not expect the twists and turns. And I just felt the emotions of each and every character. Such a great book!

Twists and turns. I love this book. It was such easy reading. Not too descriptive not too floral. I have to keep forcing myself to stop reading it before I read it and it was finished and I would be upset. Some things I sort of figured out and other things were complete surprises. Great book. Want to read more of Lisa Jewell

Damn…. I really did like this book but oh my god… it messed my emotions. So heartbreaking and psychopathic. I pretty much guessed what happened to Ellie but not completely, there’s definitely a couple of twists.

Great. Loved it. Characters, rhythm and story. Very gripping. At times a tiny touch predictable maybe but still a great read. Hooked me from page one and had to stay up until I finally finished it.

Expect to be bored. The book started interesting and ended interesting. But throughout the middle, it was so boring I thought it was going nowhere. Has almost nothing to do with the missing girl other then the beginning and the end of the book. Twists were not as shocking as I’d expected. Not a book I’d recommend

Crazy good. Lots of twists and turns…. Crazy good book. Loved it’s weirdness!!!!


5 stars!!!. This book had me reading for hours. I couldn't put it down because each page made me crave more and more. It was a very heart wrenching story. I cried at the end and it left me thinking about it for days after I had finished. 10/10 recommend.

Absolutely Exceptional. Where to even begin? Once I got into this book I couldn’t put it down! I loved hearing from multiple characters to get a better understanding of why certain thing happened the way the did. I truly can’t wait to recommend this book to someone else.

Super predictable. Outcome is obvious 30% way through

It’s a good book. It was a little hard to get through at first since it was pretty confusing but once u get through more than half of the book it gets pretty interesting.

So good. This book was amazingly good. It makes you want to read nonstop. I recommend it 100%

Great until the end. This was a great book. Definitely kept me interested but towards the end It just went flat. Wish the momentum stayed but overall definitely a good read.

Slow getting into. This book wasn’t like the typical books I’m used to reading. The kind that grab your attention from the jump. The first half of the book is spent telling everyone’s story, in a way. I actually almost stopped reading it but had heard so many good things, so I kept on. LISTEN. I am SO glad I did. Once I got to all the twist and turns (about halfway in), the slow first half actually made sense. I am so glad that I didn’t give up on this book. It was literally jaw dropping, as it hits you with the most twisted unexpected ending. Even once you think you’ve got it figured out. If you find yourself wondering if you should read it or if you’re debating on quitting the book because of how slow the book starts.. READ THE BOOK. You won’t regret it

WOW. I would give this book 6 stars if I could. I was intrigued the entire time and the ending was amazing.

Slow burn, then powerful ending. Not how I expected the book to go, AT ALL. But nonetheless, it’s beautifully and delicately written. It’s a must read.

Great read!. Fascinating story! I couldn’t stop reading!

Great read. Bought this at Costco a few years ago, and it was so well written. Loved the unexpected twists and turns. Y’all should read it (:

Predictable. Found myself skipping some pages honestly as I got bored. Very predictable. Disappointed

Had me hooked!. Loved this book! Catching all those different point of views had me on the end of my seat all the way to the end!

Best Book Ever!. Best book I have ever read. Could not put it down, I adore her writing style!

AMAZING. This book was so amazing f and definitely kept me on my toes like crazy!!!!! TOTALLY RECOMMEND

Build ups. I select books based off personal preference and reviews. This book had more reviews on how great it was vs not. And boy was I disappointed. Most of the time I was flipping through it to stop the bleeding. Everyone said predictable but I was morbidly dissatisfied with it all. Not sad about wasting money on a book, more sad I wasted time trying to finish this one.

Predictable and long!. This book felt like it dragged on and on…and on. I felt like I knew immediately how it was going to end. Not a terrible book just a dull read

Very good ending but very drawn out. Very good book in the end but I felt there was a lot that could have been left out so it wasn’t so drawn out.. but all in all it was a good book!

Amazing. Could not put it down. Gripping.

A little slow but good read. Definitely slow to get into & pretty predictable where the story is going from the first 30 pages. Wasn’t surprised by most of the “twists”. but overall a good & interesting read

First book of 2022. This is a great book to read! I wanted to start reading again in 2022 so I did some research and started with this one! I am so happy to say it is so good and keeps you on your toes! You think you have everything figured out until you don’t. Twist and turns throughout that make you want to keep reading! So good.

Then She Was Gone. I enjoyed the novel. The book had me wanting to keep reading and reading, until I felt that I knew what was going to happen next. But even though the plot twist was obvious.. this was still a great book to read!

Wow. What an incredibly amazing story!!!!!

Felt very drawn out. The beginning was hard to get into and then once we hit the middle it felt very drawn out and you want things to speed up. It was boring sometimes and took a while to get to the mystery. The ending made it worth the read.

Amazing!. Well written & pulls you in. Please turn this into a movie or tv series!

Unpredictable-Amazing. This book left me in a river of tears.. such a good read. A book that brings you through all the emotions, all the feels, all the thoughts, and all the predictions. I just started getting into reading again and this is my new favorite. Just wow.

Loved it. Great book! Page turner!

4 1/2 thrilling, but heartbreaking stars!. Ellie Mach was a 15-year old girl to had it all ... she was smart, was beautiful (inside and out), had a wonderful boyfriend and a loving family. It was all taken away from her one morning ... when she went missing. After Ellie's disappearance, her family falls apart ... her older brother going off to college hardly ever returning home, her older sister becoming a shell of her former self and her parents divorce because her mother cannot get over Ellie being gone. Ten years later, Laurel (Ellie's mother) meets a man that brings out feelings in her that she hasn't had for a long time. But when Laurel meets Floyd's 9-year old daughter, Poppy ... all the feelings from 10 years previous come back because this little girl looks just like Ellie. This is the first book that I have read by Lisa Jewel and WOW ... it took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. Even though I knew that some of the characters are not nice people, I couldn't help but feel sorry for them because they all had their troubles and Ms. Jewel was very good at giving you all sides to the story. I cried and I laughed ... but mostly I sobbed! I'd have to stop reading for awhile just to give my eyes a rest. Ecen now, there are tears still falling while I'm writing this. This is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time, just because of the nature of the story and how it was told. I recommend you have a box of tissue handy when you go to read this book. I received an ARC courtesy of Simon & Schuster Canada through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

Could Not Put This Book Down!!. Very heart wrenching but fantastic read. Definitely recommend this.

Page turner!!!. Loooooooovvvvved!!!!! Could NOT put it down! Posted it on my FB page and since then several friends have also read it!! Page turner! A must read!

Amazing. Love love loved this book. Plot twist after plot twist. It was honestly so good. I need more books like this

LOVEEEEE. I usually can’t get into books that well, but this book I couldn’t put down!!!! So good

Great Book!. This book is very well written with lots of suspense. I couldn’t put the book down!

Then she was gone. Unique story telling. A page turner!

Wow... amazing. Loved this book. So many twists and turns and complex characters with time lines that she handled cleverly.

Then she was gone. Really good. Could not put it down..

Absolutely amazing. I personally can not say I disliked any part of this book. The emotions are very present, the thrill is always there. Very well written. I could not stop reading.
