Lots of families have mysteries that get swept under the rug and never discussed. Not all families have a son who wants to pull that mystery out, dust it off, and solve it. All while recording the relevant conversations. That's My Lost Family in a nutshell. It's short, sweet (but not saccharine), and worth listening to.

If you like true-life family relationships, dysfunction, and even genealogy, give this short audio a try.

The snow is coming down! So I‘m #audiopuzzling while I listen to an Audible Original called My Lost Family. I tagged another of the author‘s books b/c the AO story isn‘t in the database. #booked2020 #finishinaday

Cinfhen I listened to the audio / it was ok. Stay warm & safe indoors 🥰 2d
Cathythoughts The puzzle is really coming along 👍🏻❤️ 2d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @cathythoughts Thanks! It‘s just a small one. I‘ll start a bigger one tomorrow. But I had to give myself a chance to get back in the zone! Haven‘t done puzzles since last winter. 2d

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen I liked it, but it was so short. I can‘t imagine going through what their family experienced. 2d

This is the sad and sometimes shocking and ugly story of what happened to a young Jewish woman and her family in London in the 1950s. As a fifteen year-old, Lilian married Raymond, had two children, and divorced when the children were three and two years old. Raymond came over to take the kids to park and the three of them disappeared. Forty years after the disappearance of her children, Lilian got a phone call and they were back in her life. Wow.
