The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox

Maggie O'Farrell

Set in Edinburgh in the 1930s, this is the story of Esme Lennox, an outspoken, unconventional girl who repeatedly embarrasses her family in polite society. Even Kitty, her beloved sister, is beginning to lose patience. Something will have to be done. Six decades later, Iris Lockhart receives a stunning phone call which informs her that her great-aunt Esme, whom she never knew existed, is being released from Cauldstone Hospital. A gothic, intricate tale of family secrets, lost lives, and the freedom brought by truth, The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox will haunt readers long past its final page.
