Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Sarah Beth Durst has been praised for her captivating novels that merge the darkly imagined with very real themes of self-discovery and destiny.

In The Lost, we'll discover just what it means to lose one's way...

It was only meant to be a brief detour. But then Lauren finds herself trapped in a town called Lost on the edge of a desert, filled with things abandoned, broken and thrown away. And when she tries to escape, impassible dust storms and something unexplainable lead her back to Lost again and again. The residents she meets there tell her she's going to have to figure out just what she's missing - and what she's running from - before she can leave. So now Lauren's on a new search for a purpose and a destiny. And maybe, just maybe, she'll be found...

Against the backdrop of this desolate and mystical town, Sarah Beth Durst writes an arresting, fantastical novel of one woman's impossible journey... and her quest to find her fate.

A Story Unlike Anything I've Read!

Any additional comments?

I loved that this book was such a new premise to me. It was just a little slow to start, mostly just because I was just as confused as the main character. But it wasn't long before I was sucked into the mystery. I even had trouble stopping and going to bed!

I will say though that while this has a little romance, there's no steam at all, so to me it's mostly a mystery, rather than romance.

I really enjoyed the story overall, but was a little dissatisfied by the ending, while I think it's an HEA, it felt a bit incomplete. I'm hoping we get a sequel to truly finish the story.

Good book, not a romantic comedy.

I did enjoy the book and it was well written, and well performed. Audible lists it as a romantic comedy, but it is a drama. Period. Horribly sad and parts, It also leaves you to figure out the ending on your own. I think it would have been much better had I known going in it was going to a heart wrenching drama.

Loved it!

I loved this wonderfully unique story! The author definitely thought out of the box when she wrote this one, and the narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Good read

Something different. Interesting characters and situation. Good ending and everything comes together well. Reads like a young adult novel, which I like. in any case, it doesn't detract from the story.Characters who care about each other.
