Sometimes it takes losing everything to truly find yourself... 

Since Sandy Shortt's childhood classmate disappeared twenty years ago, Sandy has been obsessed with missing things. Finding what is lost becomes her single-minded goal from the lone sock that vanishes in the washing machine to the car keys she misplaced.

It's no surprise, then, that Sandy's life's work becomes finding people who have vanished from their loved ones. Sandy's family is baffled and concerned by her increasing preoccupation. Her parents can't understand her compulsion, and she pushes them away further by losing herself in the work of tracking down these missing people.

She gives up her life in order to offer a flicker of hope to devastated families and escape the disappointments of her own. Jack Ruttle is one of those devastated people. It's been a year since his brother Donal vanished into thin air, and he has enlisted Sandy Shortt to find him. But before she is able to offer Jack the information he so desperately needs, Sandy goes missing too and Jack now finds himself searching for his brother and the one woman who understood his pain.

One minute Sandy is jogging through the park, the next, she can't figure out where she is. The path is obscured. Nothing is familiar. A clearing up ahead reveals a camp site, and it's there that Sandy discovers the impossible: she has inadvertently stumbled upon the place-- and people--she's been looking for all her life, a land where all the missing people go. A world away from her loved ones and the home she ran from for so long, Sandy soon resorts to her old habit again, searching. Though this time, she is desperately trying to find her way home...

worth reading

The author was really good in the way she gave out information in the story. You kind of knew what's going to happen next but at the same time you had no idea at all.

A Place Called Here

This book is kind of fantasy-like story where the main character, Sandy lost and found herself in a world that all missing people she tried to find called "Here". Then, the journey began when she try to find a way to back home. It is worth to read this book to feel the thrill and suspense during your lazy time. Nice 👍

Great book

The author did an excellent job of conveying facts in the story. You had a vague concept of what was going to happen next, but you had no notion at all. You felt a little lost most of the time, but it added to the stew of confusion that eventually led to enlightenment.
