Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Returning again to the theme of working-class people and their wrenching concerns, Songs for the Missing begins with the suspenseful pace of a thriller, following an Ohio community?s efforts to locate a young woman who has gone missing. It soon deepens into an affecting portrait of a family trying desperately to hold onto itself and the memory of a daughter whose return becomes increasingly unlikely. Stark and honest, this is an intimate account of what happens behind the headlines of a very American tragedy.


Review:
Emily Janice Card helps us zoom in on the family and friends left behind when 18-year-old Kim disappears. Her mother, Fran, is capable and busy, and Card gives her an almost-professional terseness that cracks occasionally when she turns to her husband for comfort. Husband Ed has a gruffer voice, but there's more tenderness and sensitivity in Card's expression of him. Their 15-year-old, Lindsay, uses IM and computer games to stay aloof, but Card conveys her internal feelings of emptiness and confusion. With tension pervading all the story's viewpoints, Card voices the characters as they adjust to grief and sadness, and attempt to resume their lives as best they can.
