The Lost Daughter
by Elena Ferrante and Ann Goldstein




Overview -

Another penetrating Neapolitan story from New York Times best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal and starring Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson, Paul Mescal, and Peter Sarsgaard

Leda, a middle-aged divorc e, is alone for the first time in years after her two adult daughters leave home to live with their father in Toronto. Enjoying an unexpected sense of liberty, she heads to the Ionian coast for a vacation. But she soon finds herself intrigued by Nina, a young mother on the beach, eventually striking up a conversation with her. After Nina confides a dark secret, one seemingly trivial occurrence leads to events that could destroy Nina's family in this "arresting" novel by the author of the New York Times-bestselling Neapolitan Novels, which have sold millions of copies and been adapted into an HBO series (Publishers Weekly).

"Although much of the drama takes place in Leda's] head, Ferrante's gift for psychological horror renders it immediate and visceral." --The New Yorker

"Ferrante's prose is stunningly candid, direct and unforgettable. From simple elements, she builds a powerful tale of hope and regret." --Publishers Weekly
