Emily, Gone is a beautifully crafted story filled with heartache, loss, changes of heart, family relationships, reunions and much more. The characters are well developed and easy to like...even misguided Vicki. I enjoyed the story and was waiting to see how Emily would be reunited with her family and it was so well done. A series of seeming misfortunes turned into a magnificent ending. I very much enjoyed this story and will be looking forward to reading more Bette Lee Crosby books.
