REVIEW - MISSING JULIA - CATHERINE DUNNE


One morning William Harris gets up and knows that something is wrong.  The woman he loves - his partner has not contacted him, replied his messages for three days. On the other side Melissa - the missing woman's daughter also figures that something is not quite right. Both of them decide to go and look at Julia's house and the shocking discovery is made that this is no ordinary disappearance neither is it an abduction - Julia has systematically cleared out her wardrobe, her house making all necessary arrangements to cover her disappearance.

Trying to unravel the reasons as to why Julia - a rational person, a doctor who is methodical and who has not shown any signs of upheaval should do such a thing is what William sets out to do. William loves Julia deeply and knows the feelings were reciprocated so he is nonplussed at her behaviour knowing that it is completely out of character for her to act like this, unless there is a very valid reason. Using simple logic and basic detective skills he unravels a story of personal anguish that Julia has borne alone and comes to the realisation that her disappearance in the way it happened is merely to protect those she loves against a possible law suit and disgrace.

From Ireland to London to Chennai the story travels as Julia tries to find peace for herself away from the turmoil of what has happened.  Nice story telling here.
