Inhaltsangabe zu „The Day We Disappeared“ von Lucy Robinson

Annie has a secret. But if she's not going to tell, we won't either. It's a heart-breaking secret she wishes she didn't have - yet Annie isn't broken, not quite yet. Especially now there's someone who seems determined to fix her. Kate has run away. But she's not going to tell us why - that would defeat the point of running, wouldn't it? It's proving difficult to reinvent herself, however, with one person always on her mind. Scratch beneath the surface and nobody is really who they seem. Even Annie and Kate aren't entirely sure who they are any more.

ein langsamer Anfang, aber es lohnt sich für die Überraschung am Ende. Mich hat schon lange kein Plot Twist mehr so überrumpelt...

    The Day We Disappeared

    “Are you being mysterious and odd, Kate Brady?” – “Mysterious and odd,” I confirmed. “It’s our family motto. Nescio et mirum.” The blurb doesn’t really tell you a lot about what is happening. Personally, I picked this book up because it is set in London and has a pretty cover. Also, secrets intrigue me. Not knowing what to expect is what threw me off a bit in the first 50 pages or so. But as soon as I fell in love with the characters, I was 100% in love with this book. “We men aren’t all bad. Some of us are actually quite pleasant.” And by “the characters” I mean all of them. I’ve never read a Lucy Robinson book before, but this has definitely not been my last. She has a way with words, but also a talent for scenes that let you see deep into a characters soul, main character, secondary character, animal or otherwise. It’s ridiculous how quickly and how hard I fell for all of them in this book. I don’t even like horses that much, but Mark made me feel right at home at his farm. Just like Kate. “They expect you to lie, Annie – and they lie right back.” Usually when the main character in a book keeps a secret, I get annoyed quite easily. There’s only so much foretelling, half-sentences and paraphrasing a reader can take. But with Kate and Annie, I didn’t mind it at all. Again just showing how great a writer Lucy Robinson seems to be. And when the secret was finally revealed, it hit me right into the heart. I hadn’t expected it at all. And what a clever plot twist it is… I doubt anyone would expect it. At least I hope not, it would ruin the whole experience otherwise. "Tick tock, tick tock. It wasn’t just the changing season, though. It was something else. Something bigger. You’ve stayed here too long, whispered the Bad Sh*t, as I pulled on some riding gloves. You’re going to get found out…" There’s not much I can say about the book without giving too much away. I did enjoy it a lot, it was a quick read but still enjoyable, heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time, and quite the experience. I do think however, that not telling readers anything at all in the blurb is a bit of a problem. I would have liked to know a little bit more about Annie and Kate. The jobs they were about to begin. I doubt that would have spoiled anything, it would however helped ease the reader into the story. "I loved travelling. I loved the landscapes, the big skies, the freedom. Most of all I loved the surprising feeling of safety it gave me. I’d hand over my rucksack at the check-in desk, pass through security and… there. It was as if my very soul breathed out. Suddenly I was just another girl, a nameless face in a sea of travellers." I subtracted one point/star for my confusion in the beginning. I almost wouldn’t have read on because it felt like such a weird book, not at all like what I had signed up for. But I would have so regretted not reading on. Definitely recommending this to anyone, it’s the perfect read for this summer.
