"The title story of Lost Girls was inspired by the kidnapping of a local girl in my community when I was eighteen," says Morris. "I hope this story and the others included in the collection help reflect the range of women's experiences and get close to touching the truth about the challenges and joys of being a woman, chief among them being seen, acknowledged, remembered, and heard."
"The stories in Ellen Birkett Morris's collection, Lost Girls, are memorable for the way they see the lasting truths that reside within the familiar," Lee Martin, author of The Bright Forever states. "These stories are full of imaginative leaps that capture the wildness that lies beneath our seemingly ordinary lives." Lost Girls will appeal to those who enjoy reading literary and women's fiction.
