Missing Sisters | [Gregory Maguire]

Missing Sisters

Alice's life is about to change. She's a skinny orphan. She's never been able to hear too well. And she can't speak too well, either. The only person who seems to care for her - one of the nuns at the orphanage - gets taken away from Alice in a freak accident. And then one day somebody calls Alice by the wrong name. Miami, she says. Miami Shaw. Miami Shaw, who may be Alice's twin sister. Who lives only a few miles away. Who has what Alice has always dreamed of - a whole wonderful family.

Audible Editor Reviews

Gregory Maguire is best known for writing Wicked, which inspired the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. He also spent time in a Catholic orphanage in his youth, thus he has firsthand knowledge of the setting of Missing Sisters. In this young adult novel, Maguire examines the less-than-charmed life of Alice, a late 1960's orphan with disabilities who loses the companionship of Sister Vincent de Paul, the one person who seems to understand her.

Angela Goethals brings her wealth of experience as a young adult audiobook narrator - as well as an accomplished film and television actress - to the narration. At times touching and at others humorous, Goethals' voice embodies the full spectrum of emotion required of a tragic tale turned triumphant.

Publisher's Summary

Alice's life is about to change. She's a skinny orphan. She's never been able to hear too well. And she can't speak too well, either. The only person who seems to care for her - one of the nuns at the orphanage - gets taken away from Alice in a freak accident. And then one day somebody calls Alice by the wrong name. Miami, she says. Miami Shaw. Miami Shaw, who may be Alice's twin sister. Who lives only a few miles away. Who has what Alice has always dreamed of - a whole wonderful family. But is there a place in that family for Alice?

From best-selling author Gregory Maguire comes a funny, heartrending story of the strength of sisterhood and the struggle to find a family of one's own.
