My Name is Anna

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Two women – desperate to unlock the truth.
How far will they go to lay the past to rest?

ANNA has been taught that virtue is the path to God. But on her eighteenth birthday she defies her Mamma’s rules and visits Florida’s biggest theme park.

She has never been allowed to go – so why, when she arrives, does everything seem so familiar? And is there a connection to the mysterious letter she receives on the same day?

ROSIE has grown up in the shadow of the missing sister she barely remembers, her family fractured by years of searching without leads. Now, on the fifteenth anniversary of her sister’s disappearance, the media circus resumes in full flow, and Rosie vows to uncover the truth.

But will she find the answer before it tears her family apart?

Customer Reviews

My Name is Anna

Well plotted - but feel the most interesting thing is what happens next - please tell us how they all cope with re-integrating the family.

Exciting and gripping story!

The book is set in the UK and USA and takes a bit of thought to get into the story.  It is told from the point of view of two girls, Anna and Rosie, who experienced very different childhoods from each other.  

I enjoyed the twists running through the book. The story touches on heartbreak, friendship, family, loss and love.  I would highly recommend.

Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK and Lizzy Barber for the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.
