Waiting for Lindsay by Moira Forsyth

All afternoon the voices called, the two syllables of her name singing through the woods, down the steep garden, and across the sands to the sea.

On a hot July day, thirteen year old Lindsay Mathieson walked along the shore, past the rocks and out of sight. For ever. Thirty years later, a new crisis draws her family back to that familiar beach, and to memories too long buried.
