About The Book:
Once, Jane Moore and Alexandra Walsh were inseparable, sharing secrets and stolen candy, plotting their futures together. But when Jane became pregnant at seventeen, they drifted slowly apart. Jane has spent the years since raising her son, now seventeen himself, on her own, running a gallery, managing her sister’s art career, and looking after their volatile mother—all the while trying not to resent the limited choices life has given her.
“Alexandra, Gone” is a powerful and emotional story, with sparks of levity and humor. I look for McPartlin to continue to become a popular voice in women’s literature in the years to come.
