When her old friend Hannah doesn't show up at her house in the south of France, everyone assumes that Claudia, who has known Hannah since their shared years at boarding school, will know where she is, and what has happened. But as Claudia travels from the USA to France to help Hannah's husband and children conduct their search, she is forced to deal with her old jealousy of Hannah, as well as her own relationship in the present with her French lover, Alexandre. As events unfold, Claudia begins to wonder if Hannah and Alexandre may have had an affair and if that has had something to do with Hannah's mysterious disappearance. In this exquisitely written, Ferrante-esque novel the question of whether or not Hannah will come back becomes urgent and bewildering. And if she doesn't come back, what will the lives of her friends and family be without her?

Claudia and Hannah are drawn together at their strict English boarding school during the 1950s. They share dreams of the future but ultimately take different paths: Hannah settles down and has a family, while Claudia becomes a filmmaker in America while maintaining a long-term affair with Frenchman Alexandre. Despite their life choices, their friendship endures for 30 years. Then Claudia receives a call from Hannah's husband, Phillip: Hannah has gone missing without a trace; could Claudia come help find her? Claudia returns to Europe to search for Hannah, all while reliving moments of their friendship and wondering what will happen if Hannah is really gone. As secrets are uncovered and truth comes out, the reader is asked to explore whether love and friendship can endure in the face of jealousies and betrayal. This sobering novel is written in a descriptive, leisurely style and set in beautiful areas in England and France. It also contains many references to films of the French New Wave, which is sure to attract film buffs. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
