Kurzbeschreibung

Frances is doing fine; she has her life sorted. Then comes the phone call from Alec, the husband who left her for her younger sister Susan, thirteen years ago. Susan has disappeared, and Alec wants her daughter Kate to come and stay with Frances, out of harm’s way. Meanwhile, Frances’s youngest sister, Gillian, finds that two months after ending her relationship with a married man, she is pregnant. While all this is going on another crisis is looming. It’s been a family full of secrets. Frances and Gillian haven’t even managed to tell their parents Susan is missing. After all, she’s left unacknowledged thirteen years of birthday and Christmas presents for Kate, the granddaughter they never saw. She was the one who made sure she could never be forgiven, and now there’s another secret. It’s not always the things you fear most, which matter in the end.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Left me thinking... 5. Februar 2013
Von Tina M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The book is a great read, with a great story. The characters are very well developed and the plot is both easy to follow and yet so depressing with daily sorrows and unspoken words so one quickly feels pity. Yet, there were so many grammar and spelling mistakes that got me thinking the book was poorly revised? BordAeaux wine? And one of the main characters' name switched from Alec to Alex and back to Alec. That really really annoyed me and made me almost out my Kindle down!

4.0 von 5 Sternen How to survive them 8. Juni 2010
Von Dr. J. Mcgonigal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
John Cleese and Robyn Skynner wrote a 1980s book called 'Families and How to Survive Them', and it's true that family life can be no joke. What I liked about Moira Forsyth's novel TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE is the authentic sense she conveys of modern families, moving together and apart, with the different generations interwoven still within each others' daily lives even although decisions and accidents from the past have brought various kinds of separation.

She is good at observing their ways of self-preservation, and particularly good on the effect of living with teenagers. The two sons of Frances, the main character, being brought up by her as a separated working parent in a Highland town, are authentic in all respects, combining self-centeredness, sibling rivalry and loyalty. Their feckless father comes too late on the scene to make any real impact on the lives they have already begun to lead, and the characters she has helped them to develop.

Frances is a well-drawn character. I kept feeling I ought to like her less than I actually did, with her slightly judgmental and determined Northern manner, drawn to men who are weak in ways she is not blind to. But her sensitivity to the world around her and the clear-sighted commitment she shows not only to her sons but to the pregnant daughter of her sister, who betrayed her many years before, balance the survival toughness she has had to develop.

That sister has disappeared, and the tension of not quite knowing when or whether she will ever return carries the plot forward with a mysterious momentum. The final birth scene also blends realism and wonder in an authentic way -- another mystery.
