Twelve-year-old Juniper and her friends in the Fortune Tellers' Club use their psychic skills to try to find a missing child.
For a sophisticated and titillating read, dip into The Lost Girl by famed British novelist D.H. Lawrence, known for producing such masterworks as The Rainbow and Women in Love. This award-winning novel is a journey of discovery, following protagonist Alvina Houghton as she experiences a series of devastating personal losses and seeks to find an ideal romantic partner, against the express wishes of her parents. The Lost Girl highlights Lawrence's keen insight into human behavior, and it's a must-read for fans of classic twentieth-century literature.
The Lost Girls analyses a number of British writers between 1850 and 1930 for whom the myth of Demeter's loss and eventual recovery of her cherished daughter Kore-Persephone, swept off in violent and catastrophic captivity by Dis, God of the Dead, had both huge personal and aesthetic significance. This book, in addition to scrutinising canonical and less well-known texts by male authors such as Thomas Hardy, E. M. Forster, and D. H. Lawrence, also focuses on unjustly neglected women writers – Mary Webb and Mary Butts – who utilised occult tropes to relocate themselves culturally, and especially in Butts's case to recover and restore a forgotten legacy, the myth of matriarchal origins. These novelists are placed in relation not only to one another but also to Victorian archaeologists and especially to Jane Ellen Harrison (1850-1928), one of the first women to distinguish herself in the history of British Classical scholarship and whose anthropological approach to the study of early Greek art and religion both influenced – and became transformed by – the literature. Rather than offering a teleological argument that moves lock-step through the decades,The Lost Girls proposes chapters that detail specific engagements with Demeter-Persephone through which to register distinct literary-cultural shifts in uses of the myth and new insights into the work of particular writers.

He brings her home to his family, who reluctantly take her in—but Charity grows up never feeling accepted among either the Asian immigrants or the whites. In these two worlds divided by prejudice, her only true and unconditional bond is with her protective rescuer, Joe—until Charity is drawn to a devoted young man who offers her something she’s never had: a chance to really belong. As Charity’s relationship with Chen Fai deepens, Joe is forced to confront his impermissible feelings for a girl he has come to love. But as the racial tensions in Wyoming Territory ignite, Charity is torn between two men and two cultures, between the forbidden and the safe, between risk and desire.
