A PLACE CALLED HERE



A Place Called Here
Since Sandy Shortt’s childhood classmate disappeared twenty years ago, Sandy has been obsessed with missing things. Finding becomes her goal- whether it’s the sock that vanished in the washing machine, the car keys she misplaced or the graver issue of finding the people who vanish from their lives. Sandy dedicates her life to finding these missing people, offering devastated families a flicker of hope.

Jack Ruttle is one of those desperate people. It’s been a year since his brother Donal vanished into thin air. Thinking Sandy Shortt could well be the answer to his prayers, he embarks on a quest to find her.

But when Sandy goes missing too, she stumbles upon the place - and people - she’s been looking for all her life. A world away from her loved ones and the home she ran from for so long, Sandy soon resorts to her old habit again, searching. Though this time, she is desperately trying to find her way home…

Cecilia e uma escritora bem nova "IRSISH" que me cativou com PS I LOVE YOU. Falava de perdas sim, falava de tristezas de renascer. Sim tudo a ver com a borboleta!!! Leitura simples, macia, barata talvez para os cultos das universidades tipo UNISC. Mas ha de se entender em breve que literatura e literatura. E o simples e belo!
Dei de presente esse livro, na verdade. Ainda nao o li. E se minh amiga o ler e depois me emprestar posso entao falar a respeito. O titulo me atraiu mais do que tudo. Pois Eu e minha amiga estavamos nessa fase caotica de achar defeito em tudo, de querer ir embora, sabe Deus pra onde, esqueciamos frequentemente tos tesouros guardados no hoje- E ca entre nos onde eles estao? Ha de se encontrar enfim- A place called here! I hope we find this place one day some how! Well she is in love now, then I am pretty sure she has found hers...what about me? God only knows how!
