April 1975. The entire community of the leafy Dublin suburb, Dun Laoghaire, is shocked and baffled at the sudden disappearance of eighteen-year-old Lucinda Gray, a quiet unassuming girl who has always blended into the background. What could have happened in a seemingly un¬eventful life to make her vanish, as if into thin air? What happened in the days, months and years after her disappearance?
This is a tale, spanning two countries and eleven years, telling of the courage and determination of a young girl making the most of the challenging cards life has dealt her, and the strength and resilience of her loved ones in dealing with the de¬va¬station of her loss.
