Books & Brews: The Missing Years Online
Our (normally) traveling book club will be meeting virtually again. Join us tonight to discuss The Missing Years by Lexie Elliott.
Ailsa Calder has inherited half of her childhood home, an eerie Scottish manor in the middle of nowhere. The other half belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace twenty-seven years ago—her father. Leaving London, she journeys to the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands, joined by the half-sister who’s almost a stranger to her.
Ailsa can’t escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house itself is watching her—as if her past hungers to consume her. She also can’t ignore how the neighbourhood animals refuse to set one foot within the gates of the garden.When the first nighttime intruder shows up, Ailsa fears that the manor’s careless rugged beauty could cost her everything.
