I have also used and valued the kaleidoscope metaphor but in an organizational change situation. I am intrigued by the possibility of bringing the reflection of kaleidoscope and its pattern rearrangement to my memoir writing.
And, I will definitely sit with the possibility. Good Morning, Audrey. I agree, Susan definitely offers a new way at looking at things and trying to make sense of them. Best wishes in your memoir writing and thanks for stopping by. Looks like a great read! Just ordered it. Since Susan is also an adoptive parent plus sibling to a special needs person, I have TWO good reasons to read and possibly review this memoir!

Everyone is unique and God gifted beautiful….. Thanks, Kris. She begins to understand her family and the I was immediately drawn into this memoir, and haunted by it after I was through reading it. She begins to understand her family and the relationships within it, that make it what it is. Her love for mother is a focal point. It is obvious and poignant.
This book is much more than the confusing and complex search for her suddenly missing mother. It is more about a daughter searching to understand her mother, who she is and who she really was. It is easy to forget that out parents are people.
The Missing List – a memoir
It will make you look at your own family and relationships, while you still can. And it should. I liked this book, but didn't love it. It's a true story of a missing person told from the daughter's perspective. When Lindsay had a fight with her mother on New Year's Day she assumed that it would quickly blow over in a few days, but then it didn't and a few months later her mother goes missing.
The book covers Lindsay and her brothers frantic search for their mother and later how their family deals with the grief when their mother's body is found. You definitely feel Lindsay's guilt and pain I liked this book, but didn't love it. You definitely feel Lindsay's guilt and pain over losing her mother and it does make for a quick read.
But, it was kindof depressing too. Overall, like I said before it was good, but not great. Dec 11, Kristie rated it really liked it. I felt Lindsay wrote an honest book about her own downfalls after learning that her mother was missing. Yes, at times she seemed immature but she was so young and trying to get through college when this happened. It is not a very flattering portrayal of herself but she knows that and has gotten herself with help beyond her grief and on to her long life ahead. She even gives credit to those whom she felt handled the situation in more positive ways, like her two brothers and father.
I have to adm I felt Lindsay wrote an honest book about her own downfalls after learning that her mother was missing. I have to admire her for having the guts to write this book. May your life be smooth sailing onward! Sep 27, Kirsten rated it did not like it. Nov 09, a. Sad, not well written.

Jul 01, Eileen rated it really liked it. This is a memoir of a girl trying to come to grips when her mother goes missing.
It is an honest and open story about the many feelings we go through when tragedy hits. Aug 05, Paul Pessolano rated it liked it. This has not been their first fight and they have been able to work through their problems, however tonight is different. Lindsay is attending Brown University when he brother calls and tells her that her mother is missing. The two brothers and Lindsay start a frantic search for their mother who is not answering her cell phone and has kept in touch with her children at least several times a day. Her hopes are dashed when her brother calls and tells her that her mother has been found dead.
Her body was found in her car in a lake. It is determined that she died of an apparent suicide. She finds herself disappearing in pills and alcohol, trying desperately to understand why her mother would do this. A true story that shows a family that is torn apart by grief and yet finds a way to come together and overcome adversity. A good story for those who have been confronted with personal tragedy and are looking for help in facing their problems. May 02, Jess rated it liked it.
I didn't realize until after I started reading this memoir that Harrison was at Brown when the story took place and grew up in Boston's north shore. Okay, maybe it's not that funny, but I'm a Rhode Islander living in California so I get excited about glimpses of home like this. Sue me. Throughout the first half of the book I wanted to reach in and shake year-old Lindsay even while I f I didn't realize until after I started reading this memoir that Harrison was at Brown when the story took place and grew up in Boston's north shore.
Throughout the first half of the book I wanted to reach in and shake year-old Lindsay even while I felt sorry for her. By the time she started to recount the ugly side of her relationship with her mother I no longer blamed her for being a whiny twit at the opening of the story. I just felt for her. And I was terribly chilled to see a situation I can relate to on so many levels unfolding on the pages of a book. Without going into more detail, I'll just say that while this book wasn't perfect, it was quite impressive for a year-old writing less than five years after the events she's recounting.
I'm looking forward to what Harrison will do next. Jan 02, Kdevoli rated it really liked it. My heart really went out to the author Lindsay, whose mother committed suicide while she was in college. They had a very enmeshed relationship, lots of guilt trips, and Lindsay's last interaction with her mother was a fight over Lindsay not wanting at age 20! Her mother's response to this normal developmental milestone was to pack Lindsay's belongings in trash bags and kick her out of the house. Lindsay's brothers seemed to h My heart really went out to the author Lindsay, whose mother committed suicide while she was in college.
Lindsay's brothers seemed to have less trouble drawing lines in the sand with their mom, but I'm afraid Lindsay identified with her too closely. I think the brothers may have been right in their post-mortem assessment that the mom may have been bipolar, but she saw medication as weakness and refused to take any. Not an easy read. Jul 20, Jennifer Margulis rated it it was amazing. Before her body is discovered, Lindsay Harrison's mother is missing for 40 days.

Finding the book on Scribd inspired me to go back and read the entire story. Missing opens with Harrison frantically traversing New England in search of her mother. But unlike a mystery novel, there are no subtle clues to follow, and no clear solutions.

Instead, we have an exploration of how elusive truth is, and how we need stories — even purely speculative ones — to give us hope and healing in times of despair.
