The Lost Mother

The Lost Mother

A novel by


How far would you go for those you love the most?

When Louise McKenzie's mother is reported missing after the Boxing Day tsunami, Louise leaves her young family and travels to Thailand. There, she finds a bag containing her mother's passport and a book filled with beautifully illustrated maps: The Atlas of Us, belonging to a woman named Claire.

Who is Claire? How was Louise's mom connected to her? And might the atlas help Louise find the answers she needs - and her mom?

As Louise pores over the keepsakes hidden amongst its pages, she pieces together the mystery of a love affair, a dark tragedy and a secret both Claire and her mother would go to the ends of the earth to protect.

A gripping, page-turning and emotionally powerful story about love, loss and making peace with the past, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty.
