Details about Missing by Erin Kinsley
Missing by Erin Kinsley ePub PDF free download – Alice lies back in her deckchair, letting the bird bring to mind music long not thought of, not heard for years: the dreamy, chilled melody of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Albatross’. e guitar rings in her head, the background score to childhood memories of watching Top of the Pops in that cramped, unhappy house, her father oozing disapproval of long hair and loose morals from behind his evening paper, her mother darning his socks, bravely deant and tapping her foot to the songs she liked. e gull wheels away, out over the sea, which is, for once, the ultramarine blue of Enid Blyton story-book summers, a onceupon-a-time background for shrimping nets and sandcastles, for jam-sandwich picnics and ermos asks of lukewarm tea. A boy runs excitedly up the beach, a plastic bucket full of seawater slopping over his naked legs; a teenage girl throws a ball for an overexcited dog. As his grandkids bury his feet in a hole in the sand, an old man smilingly rolls his trousers up to his knees. Alice’s own picnic is made up of foods she chose as her favourites, but the thought of the prawn sandwich makes her nauseous, and the pink-and-yellow Battenberg cake is claggy in her mouth. e rst cocktail, though, is still well chilled in the cooler bag.
