reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: When Beatrice Hemmings receives a phone call in New York City telling her that her younger sister in England "has gone missing," her big-sister intuition suspects foul play. Juanita McMahon becomes Beatrice with reflective perfection as she learns the truth about her sister and discovers fundamental truths about their relationship. McMahon's delivery is haunting at times as she unfolds the narrative, written as a letter to the missing sister, Tess. McMahon's transitions from British to American accents and back are flawless. Mystery and the possibility of murder make for a suspenseful psychological thriller. H.E.F. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from April 4, 2011
        British author Lupton's unusual and searing debut is her heroine Beatrice Hemming's letter to her dead younger sister, Tess. Abandoned by their father just before their eight-year-old brother's death from cystic fibrosis and raised by their genteelly ineffectual mother, Bee and Tess have always exchanged long, intimate letters, so when Tess, an unmarried London art student, apparently commits suicide after her CF baby is born dead, Bee resigns her corporate design job in New York City and moves into Tess's shabby London flat. Convinced Tess was murdered, Bee gradually learns Tess had been spurned, like her unborn child, by her married art teacher lover; she had also been eerily pursued by a drugged-up slumming fellow student and mentally tortured by hallucinogenic drugs thrust on her by a masked stalker. Bee's self-defenses crumble as she discovers that she never returned Tess's anguished calls for help. Observing the unsettling similarities between her mother and her fiancé, Bee realizes "why no one could be my safety rope." At the harrowing conclusion, Bee's aching heart accepts that "grief is love turned into an eternal missing."
