Behind Closed Doors

Lewis, Susan 2014

For readers of Jodi Picoult, Heather Gudenkauf, and Elizabeth Flock comes a spellbinding tale of a girl gone missing—and the detective who will risk everything to find her.   Detective Sergeant Andrea Lawrence is reluctant to take this emotionally charged case, but she can’t help herself.

In a small British seaside community, a fourteen-year-old girl has vanished. Sophie Monroe hasn’t been seen since she fought—loudly, miserably—with her stepmother and father more than a week ago. But her frantic parents seem to be the only people concerned about Sophie’s disappearance.

Everyone else just assumes that an angry teenager is acting out by hiding for a while.   Did someone help Sophie run away, or abduct her? Either way, Detective Andee is certain something bad has happened. As Andee investigates, two men jump to the top of the list of suspects—but neither of them can be located.

And the deeper Andee delves into Sophie’s life, the more she struggles to keep her own darkest fears at bay—because Andee knows all too well what happens when young girls are lost and never found.   Praise for Susan Lewis   “Spellbinding . . .

One Day at a Time

Lewis, Susan 2011

In 1960s Bristol, Susan’s family was like any other with its joys and frustrations, making ends meet and fierce, working class loyalties. Then tragedy struck and left a legacy that was to last a lifetime. Susan was only nine when her mother was cruelly taken by Death.

No one spoke of it, no one dared. And Susan—bright, inquisitive and with an answer for everything—was left frightened, baffled, and ready to fight back. A year later she was sent away to school. She didn’t want to go and didn’t understand why she had to.

Why couldn’t she stay at home with her brother and father? Why was everything going wrong in her life? In her struggle to cope with an uncertain world—a world where nothing seemed to make sense any more—she ends up pushing away the one person she loves best, her father.

And as they try to find a way back to each other, they are forced to learn one of the hardest lessons of all—that no matter how angry they are with one another, and confused by life, no one can hurt them as much as they can each other, or love them as much either.
