It was the perfect love story… until he disappeared.
Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything in your life. So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.
But he doesn’t call. And he doesn’t call. And he doesn’t call.
Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they’re wrong – something must have happened – there’s got to be a reason for his silence.
What do you do when you finally discover you’re right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn’t share with each other? The truth.
If you’ve ever found yourself waiting for a call that didn’t come, Ghosted by Rosie Walsh is the book for you.
Brilliantly plotted, beautifully written, and hauntingly romantic!
Ghosted is the immersive, beguiling story of Sarah, a woman who spends seven wondrous days with the man of her dreams only to be devastated, mystified, and tormented with the question why when he seemingly disappears, and his promised call never arrives.
The writing is fluid, seamless, and expressive. The characterization is well done with an unforgettable cast of characters that are multilayered, strong, supportive, and determined. And the character-driven plot using the perfect mixture of narrative, letters, and emails, interweaves the lives of multiple families and friends as they each learn to cope, survive, heal, forgive, love, and move on from tragedy, heartbreak, marital discord, mental health issues and infertility.
Overall, Ghosted is a special blend of mystery, hope, humour, grit, romance, and heart-wrenching emotion that is much deeper and touching than it first appears. It’s enthralling, twisty, and engaging from the very first page, and I absolutely adored it!
