Overview

Lost: A Memoir is a lyrical one-woman portrayal of love, loss and hope, based on Calgary author Cathy Ostlere's bestselling memoir.

It's late-September, 1995, and Cathy, along with her parents, is waiting for her youngest brother to call them in Calgary on his birthday. For years it has been a family tradition that no matter where in the world David might be—from Australia to China to England—he would call on his birthday. The day passes and by the evening there has been no call. Could he have forgotten?

The month before, David, and his British girlfriend, Sarah, set sail from Ireland in a boat called Mugwump for the tropical island of Madeira, 1200 nautical miles south. A journey that should take two weeks becomes a mystery when the days and months pass with no word or sign of the missing boat.

Unable to wait helplessly at home, Cathy travels to Madeira determined to uncover information that will allow the families to continue hoping for the young couple. But instead of finding answers to Mugwump's disappearance, the beautiful and sensual island of Madeira stirs the sister's longings and she begins to examine the choices she has made for her life, and as hope for David and Sarah's rescue fades, Cathy's home life unravels.

Lost: A Memoir is a heartrending story of a woman's search for her missing brother and an intimate exploration of what it means to be passionate, alive, and committed to one's dreams.
