What a story. John Marrs has a way with characterisation that's so relatable you get immersed in the story. When You Disappeared is heart-breaking and redemptive and bittersweet. It ultimately centres on how one assumption can set a person on a path that alters, and ruins, the lives of a host of other people. It's redemptive in that a good life can be built from the ashes of tragedy and heart-breaking in that one decision started a chain reaction that perpetuated that tragedy. So, so very good. Just read it, really.
