The Lost Girls by Heather Young


Inheriting a house she had only lived in for one summer of her childhood seemed to be a way out of her current situation​ for Justine and her daughters.

Arriving at t
he house that Aunt Lucy left her was not what Justine had expected.  The house was run down and no where close to anything but some odd neighbors.

Aunt Lucy​​'s​ sister ​who ​had disappeared at the age of six and was never found was the main focus of the book​ along with the emotional lives of each character.


THE LOST GIRLS was a family saga that had chapters about the lives of the three sisters, Lilith, Lucy, Emily, and Justine both past and present.  The Evans women lived unhappy lives which carried on from one generation to the next.

The father of Lilith, Lucy, and Emily was a bit disturbing.  He was odd and strict.  The girls were different but interesting.  Justine and her daughters followed suit.

I enjoyed THE LOST GIRLS despite the gloomy feeling that seemed to overshadow everyone.  Ms. Young has a marvelous, descriptive writing style that helped you understand and connect with each character and each situation.​  Her writing just pulled you into the story. 

If you enjoy a bit of family drama as well as secrets and mysteries, you will enjoy THE LOST GIRLS.  4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation in return for an honest review.​

  5. I tend to enjoy books with a family at the heart of it. They tend to be quite layered and developed. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one because I was unaware of it until now.
