One August afternoon, two young sisters go missing from a beach on the far-flung Kamchatka Peninsula in northeastern Russia. Taking us through the year that follows, “Disappearing Earth” enters the lives of women and girls in this tightly knit community who are connected by the crime: a witness, a neighbor, a detective, a mother. Julia Phillips’s powerful novel brings us to a new understanding of the intricate bonds of family and community.
