A confection of chapters that will take you around the world from Exmoor to Thailand Australia Serbia Dubai San Francisco and Finland from the A with the author at the back of the book this was her favourite locationTwo stories dovetail as lives collide and interweave from the late 20th century to the last days of 2004It is a difficult novel to review without giving away too much so despite or because of what I write you will just have to go out and buy it and see for yourself how the story evolvesLouise has struggled pretty much all her life with being to all intents and purposes abandoned by her Mother Nora who was permanently on the search for a life without bourgeois ties an artist and free spirit Early on in the book Louise discovers that her Mother in all likelihood had decamped to Thailand and was on one of the islands at the time of the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004 Louise determines to fly out to Thailand to try and discover what may have happened to herClaire is a travel journalist who eventually finds her wings after a life riven with pitfalls She is following in her Father s footsteps writing as she goes and it was he who encouraged her to march off the map Things for her change drastically again early on in the book when she witnesses a shooting at a wedding venue she is in the middle of a break up with her partner and her life veers off on a totally unanticipated path She becomes involved with one family whose young daughter tugs on her heartstrings and their mutual fondness fills a deep emotional hole in Claire who is unable to have children of her own Claire has to deal with heartfelt situations and it is clear that the author s own experience mentioned at the back of the book is coming throughThe stories of Louise and Claire come together and gradually there are dawning revelations just how intertwined their lives and those of their loved ones have becomeFor us at TripFiction the wonderful locations were like finding ourselves in a sweet shop as the story lines move swiftly from one locale to another all beautifully rendered It is so evident that the author is a travel editor as she pinpoints with real dexterity the different feel of the chosen locations from the deep red earth of Uluru in Australia to war torn Serbia and the exoticism of Thailand As the characters move around each place essentially has at least one chapter devoted to it and it is clear the author is really familiar with her choice of destination and has clearly done a lot of research For me the book had a feel of a set of short stories with a couple of leitmotivs winding their way through to unify them skimming the surface there are times when the reader gets lost in the current story it can feel a little disruptive when it is time to move on to another character in another time and setting And if there was one small weakness it would be the coincidences of encounters between the characters in order to keep the story moving that felt a little contrivedThe Boxing Day Tsunami comes to horrific life and underpins the narrative of family loss and hope The author also ventures into Serbia at the time of war and to an animal rescue centre Buchanan certainly does not shy away from tackling difficult themes An electric and consuming romance develops and at the heart of the story is a book full of mementoes that one lover gives to another and that is the Atlas of Us their joint experiences and journeys both actual and emotionalThis is one of the hot Summer reads of 2014 and a wonderful way to travel the world And I can t finish without mentioning the terrific and exotic book cover which is sure to entice the reader to purchase

Full review on wwwnovelgossipcomWithin the past few months I ve become a huge fan of Tracy Buchanan s having read both No Turning Back and My Sister s Secret and immensely enjoying both I knew as soon as I saw The Lost Mother was being released in the US I had to read it Usually if I read at least three books by an author that captive me I add them to my auto buy list I m delighted to say that I just added Buchanan to itThis book is really two separate narratives that eventually merge into one Told in both the past and the present and from two viewpoints first from Louise in 2004 immediately following the devastating tsunami in Thailand and from Claire beginning a few years before the tsunami For much of the book I was wondering what these two women had in common but Buchanan slowly tells their individual stories then before you know it things begin to piece togetherLouise is desperate to find her mother who was in Thailand when the tsunami hit They ve been estranged for two years and she is full of regret and sorrow while she searches frantically for her mother As she begins to unravel the puzzle of what happened to her mother Nora she gets way confusing information than she bargained for Claire is a character that touched me deeply especially as she detailed her struggles with infertility I can t imagine the pain and heartbreak that comes with being told you will never conceiveI ve mentioned in my other reviews of Buchanan s work that she has a magical uality to her writing especially her magnificent use of stunning imagery She writes such a detailed and deeply rich narrative full of enchanting descriptions of the setting The Lost Mother hops all around the globe to some exotic and far flung places and the way she describes these cities allows the reader to fully immerse themselves into the story There were times that I really felt like I was standing next to Louise and Claire smelling the sea air or feeling the red Australian sand beneath my feet This book really has something for every type of reader There is romance a bit of suspense mystery painful secrets and drama along with a deep and emotional depth both in the characters and the plot The storyline is complicated but not in a frustrating way just an interesting way that absorbed me until the very last page

Review Ð The Atlas of Us · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ? Julia Williams ‘A compelling and emotional read that pulled me in – full of intrigue and secrets A riveting story that I know will stay with me for a very long time’ Alexandra Brown ‘Beautiful heartbreaking upliftingReally worth a read’ Hello ‘An ambitious and deeply poignant story that will take you into another world’ Heat ‘I could see it playing out like a movie as I was readingI loved it’ Novelkicks ‘A pacy readA great book to take to the beach’ Daily Mail ‘Emotionally charged’ Take A Break. Review I have to be honest I really didn t enjoy this book very much I had high hopes for it but they were really not met I thought the premise behind the book a bit of a mystery surrounding family in the wake of the tsunami sounded really promising space for drama and intrigue as well as a hint of sadness and there was bound to be a love story in there somewhere right I was just really disappointed by the storyline as a whole I found myself switching off in parts and struggle to remember every detail of the entire book now because it really hasn t stuck with me and I ve literally just finished reading it I think for me the potential was there for a lot to happen and nothing much really happened I thought the structure of the book was excellent stories running alongside each other but during different times knowing that the two stories would tie up at some point and the mystery would be revealed The stories didn t tie up until the very last moment and I didn t really attach myself to either story I think that Clare s story kept me interested than Louise s story There was definitely drama there and things happened but i thought that perhaps they were happening just for the sake of it and sometimes things didn t really contribute to the plot at all I d didn t get Louise s character at all and so I think that s why I didn t like her story as much The characters in Clare s story had a lot about them they all had hidden pasts and secrets they were keeping from one another despite promising not to however although I was drawn to these characters I didn t feel connected to their stories I felt Louise was pretty flat as a character and I don t really understand where the other characters in her storyline came from or how they fitted in I did read this book in its entirity persevering until the end to see if anything grabbed me but it really didn t and I really have struggled to find something interesting to say about it There are exotic settings but the description didn t particularly whisk me away there There are interesting characters but I dint really fel any connection with them and there are interesting storylines but they didn t really tie together for me so overall I didn t really enjoy this book or get what I was expecting from it It won t put me off picking up other books from this author in the future though but this just wasn t for me
