Interesting story but left with a lot of questions

I liked the idea of this book - a society removed from the rest of the world where some mothers would just disappear. Called the affliction, some women woould literally disappear after having children and there was no explanation as to who it happened to or why them. It was well written and an interesting commentary on how women often do disappear when they become mothers and become totally absorbed in their children. However, it left me with too many questions - where were they and when exactly is this taking place, why didn't more people leave instead of just accepting their fate, did the women really even disappear or did they all actually leave. Vera was an interesting character and you knew her motivations. It would make a good book club selection since it is not too long and will provoke a lot of discussion. I won an ARC of this book from Goodreads.
