The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox (Paperback)

Maggie O'Farrell


The winner of 2007's Good Housekeeping Book Awards: Best Book of the Year award, Maggie O'Farrell's impassioned and haunting family drama, The Vanishing Act Of Esme Lennox, is the story of Esme, a woman edited out of her family's history who is released from care after sixty years. A young woman, Iris, discovers the great aunt she never knew she had and then unfolds the heartbreaking tale of two sisters in colonial India and 1930s Edinburgh, the loneliness that binds them together and the rivalries that drive them apart, and how all this led to one of them making a shocking betrayal. The novel marks a significant departure for O'Farrell, in terms of both maturity and style.
