Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed novelist Kim Echlin pens this Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist that Publishers Weekly calls a “powerful, transcendent love story.” The Disappeared follows two young lovers torn apart by political turmoil. At 16, Anne meets Serey—a Cambodian refugee—in Montréal and falls passionately in love. But Anne’s father does not approve of her new boyfriend. Then Serey leaves Anne for Cambodia to find his family, and Anne hears no news of him for years. Could her father be censoring her letters, or is Serey not receiving them? In search of answers, Anne travels to Cambodia herself—and witnesses the devastating fallout of the Khmer Rouge dictatorship. Echlin has crafted a stunning portrait of love and courage played out against the horrors of genocide. A moving performance by narrator Tandy Cronyn elegantly captures the lyrical tone of Echlin’s story.
