Missing Reels

    By

    New York in the late 1980s. Ceinwen Reilly has just moved from Yazoo City, Mississippi, and she's never going back, minimum wage job and shabby apartment be damned. Who cares about earthly matters when Ceinwen can spend her time at repertory houses and the remaining time trying to look like Jean Harlow? One day, she discovers that her downstairs neighbour may have starred in a forgotten silent film that hasn't been seen for decades. So, naturally, it's time for a quest. She will track down the missing reels and become a part of movie history: the archivist as ingenue. As she embarks on her mission, Ceinwen meets a somewhat bumbling, charming English professor, who is as rational as she is dreamy. A gentle mystery with a quirky touch of Woody Allen style comedy, Missing Reels is an addictive read filled with perfectly painted characters and an Irresistibly retro 80s charm.
