Then She Was Gone

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell Book Summary


“A riveting thriller.” —PopSugar

“Sharply written with twists and turns.” —Library Journal

“An acutely observed family drama with bone-chilling suspense.” —People

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?

- Interesting storyline that kept me intrigued!5 star

I read this book in about a day (mostly because I’m in quarantine with limited WiFi access, so the next best thing is to read lol). I really enjoyed this book though. The author did a great job telling the story from different points of view. I didn’t quite expect the ending to be what it was, but it made sense in hindsight! I highly recommend this book!

- Predictable2 star

The book started out interestingly enough, but soon it plodded along. It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure the stories plot. Jewell is a fine writer for the most part and could certainly write clothing descriptions for a fashion catalog, too.

- So good.5 star

I love Lisa Jewel her stories drawing you in and when your done she leaves you with wanting more. A great read!

- Great book5 star

Crazy story

- Obsessed5 star

I could not put this book down. The author has a way of capturing your attention and keeping you reeled in. The story line, as well as the characters, was easy to follow. Would definitely recommend! Great read!


Read this book in a day I couldn’t put it down for the life of me it’s so good , she’s an excellent writer !!!

- AMAZING!!!!5 star

Haven’t felt this way about a book in years..... couldn’t put it down and finished it in 6 hours. Forced my sister to read it the next day... she finished it overnight! THAT good.

- An interesting take on a relatively tired theme.4 star

There are better versions of this story out there, but for what it is the novel held my attention and gave a slightly different take on the theme. I didn’t find myself especially invested in any of the characters and felt like some areas were a bit empty. The main character’s relationship with her adult children fall into this category. While this seems like an important angle to the protagonist’s perspective on events, it was mostly unexplored. All in all, a worthwhile read if you keep your expectations in check.

- Love5 star

I love this book. It might be a favorite of mine. It made me happy, then sad, and it made me feel everything each character was feeling. I cried of happiness once and then cried from feeling sad for the characters. Great book!

- Bad1 star

Just bad

- Then She Was Gone4 star

Read this book straight through. At times it was confusing, but I would recommend this book. Lisa Jewel is a brilliant writer. Have enjoyed her other books.

- Heart wrenching page turner!5 star

From the minute i started this book i couldn’t put it down. This is my second book i’ve read by Jewell (first was girls in the garden which i loved also) and the fast paced writing had me turning the pages even faster! It’s a thriller that will tug at your heart and have you on the edge of your seat. Can’t wait to read a third by this author. Wish they would make a movie out of this one.

- Then she was gone4 star

I have not finished this book but it seems really good I wish that people who left reviews would not write “spoilers” ....if you want to leave write a review just say if you like the book or not and why..... don’t put things in your review about events that happen in the book that ruins it for the rest of us who have not read the book!

Once I started this book, I could not put it down. Even though the ending is predictable, Ellie’s story is definitely worth the read.

- Then She Was Gone5 star

Never been a book person or found one that interested me but I couldn’t put this down. I finished it in a week. So good.

- Finished in 2 days5 star

Finished this book in 2 days. Could’ve finished earlier but didn’t want to finish so fast lol a bit predictable but still so amazing.

- A way to re-inspire4 star

The fact that the mystery of who ‘’Dunnit’’ early in the book allowed me to cherish the book more. 4 stars only because even though Floyd had to die, he was a hero to me.

- Then she was gone5 star

Wow! This is the first book where I have cried. This book was incredibly well written. I became invested in every way. A story with several twists and turn that keep you in suspense! A must read!

- Entirely invested from the first chapter5 star

Couldn’t put this down I read it cover to cover! Unbelievable writing by Lisa Jewel! Brava!!! Must read

- Mind Blown5 star

I love this book so much! It was so well written. This book is so dark. I haven’t read anything like it. It literally blew my mind. It was so twisted from the beginning. I couldn’t stop thinking about the book; I had to keep reading. I had to find out about Ellie. I had suspicions about Noelle and Floyd, but non that reached the reality of the story 😱 If you don’t mind dark stories, this book is amazing!

- Then She Was Gone1 star

Disappointed in this book, my first and last Lisa Jewel read. I had the entire story figured out in the first 50 pages. Very predictable and absolutely no suspense!

- 4 1/2 thrilling, but heartbreaking stars!4 star

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.

Love the different perspectives & first & third person story telling. What a great book, you have a feeling you know the storyline but then you read the details of what actually happened and it just brings you further into the complexity of each character. Possible screenplay happening?
