This is a FANTASTIC read! I really like this author's writing style. Her characters are well developed and I found myself evolved in all aspects of their lives. Buy this book if you enjoy reading about truly interesting characters and how they deal with their lives.

Alexandra,Gone written by Anna McPartlin w takes place in a Dublin suburb and is about how two families cope with the disappearance of Alexandra who one day just disappears. Of course her husband Tom is the automatic suspect but as the story progress's you realize that this is not the case. This contemporary story jumps from character to character which makes the story flow together. The story is sad and at the same time humorous. The main character Jane (who was a childhood friend of Alexandra's) trys to be the rock in her family, raising her son without the father and running a gallery and managing her sister Elle's career. She also has to deal with their always drunk and cantankerous mother Rose who lives in a basement apartment in her home. When an elevator breaks down she finds herself with Alexandra's husband Tom and ends up helping, along with Leslie (a fellow passenger in the elevator who has demons of her own) in the campaign to find what happened to Alexandra.
Tom has done whatever was needed to try to help find his wife to no avail. His in-laws have had a tough time with their daughters disappearance but go on with their daily lives the best they can.
This is a story of love and loss,new friendships and old, and how family dynamics can affect each member of that family. Underneath this often downright funny novel is the dark shadow of what really happened to Alexandra, (this would be a spoiler so I won't say).
This was a fast read and I enjoyed it very much.

I really liked this book. The title would suggest that it is about Alexandra, and it is to an extent. But the real story involves the other characters and what they go through while trying to find Alexandra. Really the character Alexandra is just a catalyst to pull all of the other characters together. Not to say that Alexandra isn't part of the plot, because the entire book revolves around finding her, but she's not part of the main stories.

This book reminded me a bit of a Maeve Binchy novel. Even before I read the author bio, and realized that McPartlin also lives in Ireland. I guess it's a similarity in Irish authors, but luckily Maeve Binchy is one of my favorite authors so being similar to one of her books is a good thing (at least in my opinion). The writing is similar and the dialect is the same. While this story doesn't have a Binchy style happy ending it is still very similar.

There was really only one character that I connected with, and that was Leslie. I too have lost family to cancer, and like Leslie am scared every time I go to the doctor that they will find something. Even though I didn't really have a personal connection with the rest of the characters I still liked every one of them. Jane is the levelheaded one. She keeps everyone else "in line" so to speak. Elle is the one that adds drama and excitement to the story. Tom is the one we all want to feel sympathetic for. The rest of the characters help the plot along, but I didn't really feel anything for them. They were just kind of there.

The writing was very good. It was humorous, touching, and romantic. Everything in the story was believable. I didn't feel as if any of the characters were fake, and the dialog was real. There were a few twists that I didn't see coming. And while I knew how the story would end I didn't expect it to take the path it took to get there.

Overall this was a great book. I liked the characters, the plot, and the writing. It's very readable, and I think I could read this again.

This story has elements of familiarity but are presented in a way that I didn't feel bored or lose interest in the story. The main character is not Alexandra, though she is the title of the story. Instead, we meet in more detail, her husband, a former best friend and her sister, and one other woman. These four converge in an unexpected way (a bit coincidental) and ultimately impact one another rather significantly.

There is a saying that people enter one another's lives for a reason and when that reason is filled, they will move on. Jane, the former best friend, is explored in most detail. Her life has not been what she thought it would be, due to an unplanned teenage pregnancy. She is not bitter though and makes the best of her world. Her relationship with the men in her life, her son's father and also Tom Alexandra's husband, are revealing, as Jane learns about herself through them. She discovers an inner strength and also learns about putting herself first. As a woman, I found her journey heartbreaking at times, but also admirable.

The other two main female characters, Elle and Leslie, are polar opposites. Elle is Jane's sister and very selfish. Leslie is alone in the world and for many years, lived the life of a hermit. As each of them finds her true self, the two also become good friends.

Tom is more of a secondary character, though as the husband, he is featured often. There is just less dimension to his story. Jane's mother and son are also featured, yet they are there as supporting characters to Jane.

Though the title states Alexandra, Gone to reflect her disappearance, the story is much more about how the other characters are lost when we meet them, and then how they get found. There are guided questions at the end of the book, should the reader want it for a book club.
