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.
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.
