When Felix Kendall vanishes, his wife Kate is left in turmoil. As she and their children adjust to a hand-to-mouth existence, she looks back on their marriage and Felix's orphaned upbringing in search of clues, confronting the possibility that she has badly misread him. And as Kate gradually discovers strengths she never knew she had, Felix is coming to terms with just what he has lost.

    " Really liked the characters in this, and the story was great too, seemed to lack somewhere though to mean it wasn't quite a cracker, can't quite put my finger on it though! "

    " Really enjoyed this well written novel. Will read more by this author. "

    " The Man Who Disappeared I picked this book up because i was one of the newly formed TV book club books. The blurb for the story was quite exciting but unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. There was actually very little action within the novel and I found myself slightly bored throughout a large proportion of it. Less exciting than I thought it would be. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/6/2014

    " Read as part of a bookclub list - it is a good enough story and its well written but it lacked any real spark for me "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 1/25/2014

    " "When posh people go bad" and the family have to scum it and shop at ASDA instead of Waitrose...gasp....and mother has to get a job as a cleaner!! Poor posh lady....poor child having to go to state school....shudder, just imagine that. I couldn't identify with it, but I persevered and finished it. Disappointed with the end though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 1/18/2014

    " Quite enjoyed this recommendation from the TV Book Club - nothing too taxing but an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Pryce | 1/18/2014

    " Kept me interested till the end. I read it on holiday in Turkey and went for a swim between chapters "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 1/13/2014

    " Read this one as a quick summer read. And it was quick, and it was easy. Can't say that it will ever be one of my faves, but it was interesting. I especially liked to see the mother's role in the family, and how she didn't know how strong she really was until it was all tested. So true... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan Pottinger | 1/7/2014

    " This is a McDonalds of a book, so bland you can't hate it nor really rave about it. Didn't feel for the lead character at all, she was far too superficial and felt that it would have been a far stronger plot if Felix had have stayed 'disappeared' ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Burton | 12/19/2013

    " First book I have read by this author.....bit slow to draw in at first but a generally good read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 12/18/2013

    " This started out really well, got my interest but then just went nowhere. Did not follow the story and did not feel for the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wanrong | 12/17/2013

    " I vaguely remember liking "Astonishing Splashes of Colour", so was quite happy to give this book by Clare Morrall a try. Not that it was bad or anything, but it just wasn't much to speak of. Okay for a summer read, but the storyline (while interesting premise) didn't quite take off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 12/16/2013

    " Engaging novel about loss and recovery, with a surprising appearance by The Group of Seven. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/11/2013

    " Very readable. She' s one of my favourite writers. Great characters, well developed story. A "sit back and enjoy" read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iheke Ndukwe | 10/20/2013

    " This is a frightfully clever book but you can't help thinking that more could have been done with it. Also, the book feels heavily weighted towards a female audience. That said, it was a good story well told and well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 8/17/2013

    " Quite enjoyed this book, quite an interesting storyline and easy to read but can't help thinking the story could have had more to it, for example the analysis of the characters pasts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Howe | 7/25/2013

    " A fairly slow read, and in places somewhat implausible. However, I made it to the end and found the writing style reasonable, the main character likeable and easy to identify with. Would I read more of Clare Morrall? Mmm, perhaps. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale Harcombe | 5/14/2013

    " Interesting premise about how well we know the person we are married to and what happens when what we think we know is not the reality. I enjoyed it though couldn't say it was a page turner.I'd be curious to read another of this author's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lin | 4/3/2013

    " Not a page turner but the story got more interesting as it progressed "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carey Combe | 12/8/2011

    " From her first brilliant book - Astonishing Splashes of Colour - Morrall never disappoints, realistic with some great characters. "

    " I found this quite an odd story, but, like the rest of Clare Morrall's books, really enjoyed it. "

    " A good gripping read, showing how small decisions lay paths that are hard to deviate from. The main strength of this for me was the way it focused mainly on the woman left behind as opposed to the man who disappeared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 9/16/2010

    " Really liked the characters in this, and the story was great too, seemed to lack somewhere though to mean it wasn't quite a cracker, can't quite put my finger on it though! "

    " I really enjoyed this. My only annoyance was that I didn't understand why there was so much media attention surrounding the case. I guess there had to be for the story to work but it just didn't really make sense.
