Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Days of Abandonment comes The Lost Daughter, Elena Ferrante's most compelling and perceptive meditation on womanhood and motherhood yet.
Leda, a middle-aged divorcee, is alone for the first time in years when her daughters leave home to live with their father. Her initial, unexpected sense of liberty turns to ferocious introspection following a seemingly trivial occurrence. Throughout the novel, Ferrante's language is as finely tuned and intense as ever, and she treats her theme with a fierce, candid tenacity.

Awful disappointment

After having read the Neapolitan series about Alaina and Lela I thought for sure I'd love this authors other books. I was wrong. The writing itself is good and similar to the 4 part series I enjoyed, but this main character and the woman in the other (Abandon whatever...) are unlikeable, crazy and unrelatable! I drudged through these two books just because I kept thinking something would happen to change my mind, but no. Absolutely disappointing!!

AwfulStory and narrator

At first intriguing, then just weird. Protagonist must be one of the most unlikeable ever. Narrator overacted and had nasal quality.
