A missing child sets the lives of three women on a collision course in this powerful and compelling novel by USA Today bestselling author Bette Lee Crosby.

1971.

When a music festival rolls through the sleepy town of Hesterville, Georgia, the Dixon family’s lives are forever changed. On the final night, a storm muffles the sound of the blaring music, and Rachel tucks her baby into bed before falling into a deep sleep. So deep, she doesn’t hear the kitchen door opening. When she and her husband wake up in the morning, the crib is empty. Emily is gone.

Vicki Robart is one of the thousands at the festival, but she’s not feeling the music. She’s feeling the emptiness over the loss of her own baby several months before. When she leaves the festival and is faced with an opportunity to fill that void, she is driven to an act of desperation that will forever bind the lives of three women.

When the truth of what actually happened that fateful night is finally exposed, shattering the lives they’ve built, will they be able to pick up the pieces to put their families back together again

Emily, Gone is a compelling story of loss, love, and forgiveness. Can a wronged mother overcome grief? Will justice be demanded for terrible deeds? Emily, Gone, as told by masterful storyteller Bette Lee Crosby, will make you rethink what it means to forgive—and to rejoice in the power of healing hearts.” —Grace Greene, bestselling author of The Memory of Butterflies

Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby is a book whose story will stay with you long after you’ve finished the last page. It is the haunting unfolding of a mother’s love for her child and the complications and heartache that follow when a child disappears. Ms. Crosby’s style of storytelling is compelling, encouraging you to linger on each page as the voices of the characters speak to you. A must-read!” —Judith Keim, bestselling author of the Beach House Hotel Series

“In Emily, Gone Bette Lee Crosby weaves a tale that combines gut-wrenching loss, the bonds of family love on many levels, and compassionate forgiveness, to deliver a compelling narrative that lodges deeply in the hearts of readers. This is storytelling at its finest.” —Patricia Sands, author of the Love in Provence Series

About Podcast

I started the Author Stories Podcast in the fall of 2014 because I wanted to listen to authors tell their stories. I wanted to know what made creative people tick, and I am fascinated by the journey that people take to get to where they are. I looked for a podcast that fit the bill and couldn’t find one, so I started the show that I wanted to listen to. I reached out to a few authors, and they were generous with their time and wisdom. Almost five years later, and now multiple shows a week, and ASP is still going strong with well over 500 episodes in our archives.

I focus on authors from all backgrounds, genres, indie or trad-pub. None of those distinctions really matter to me, I just love to listen to authors talk, and I believe that I have become a better writer by spending time learning about the craft from some of the best writers in the world.
