I completely agree with author Megan Abbott's praise of the novel: "Lori Roy transforms 1960s small-town Kansas into a haunting memoryscape. I think a large part of my problem is that I read Dark Places recently and this book really suffered by comparison. This book was easy to read, and although some reviewers noted that it needed a good editor, that didn't bother me too much. This novel is Lori Roy's first with a suspenseful Gothic center whose mystery is not solved until the final page. Gone Too Long was named a People magazine Book of the Week, was named one of the Best Books of Summer 2019, and was excerpted by Oprah magazine.

The story is built around this decades-old mystery about the "murder" of Eve, who has blond hair and blue eyes.

And much to Celia's surprise, "the closer he gets to home, the faster he drives, as if he is suddenly regretting all those years away. attention all landlords tenanted property *** Hello, are you looking for a lovely one bedroom flat in a popular area of Hamilton with a tenant already in place? While his teen daughter settles into a new love and life in Kansas, his adolescent son, and grade school daughter struggle to fit in and belong. I struggled to get through this and will admit to skipping passages, especially when the kids were killing animals for fun.

Even though there was plenty of suspense to keep me turning the pages, I found that I enjoyed the unfolding details of the characters as much as I did the unraveling of the multiple twists.
