The Disappearance of E. A. B. was a book I could not make myself put down. It was a really great adventure, as well as a dramatic story. You the reader go through a wide range of emotions while reading this book.
I don't want to give much of the story away so will be brief on the details. It's about a woman named Anna, who with the death of her Father finds out her whole life is a lie. Anna ends up going from one side of the country to the other trying to discover who she really is and in the end decides it really doesn't matter. I felt in the story she is a lonely, love hungry person who just wants to fit somewhere. Her childhood was to say the least bad. Amelia her mother was insane, Wendell her father was very distant and not a loving sort of man. As she grew and in the story she seems to latch on to men just to feel some love, and luckily in the end she finds real love. This book is by no means a romance novel though. I really enjoyed the parts of the story dealing with genealogy as she discovers the town her father Wendell is from that is now under water. There are quite a few typos in the book but they are easy enough to get past and not loose where the line was going. All in all I think its a great book.
