The inability to find one's way can be defined on virtually every level, from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual. We may have lost ourselves or be lost to others. Ultimately, writers who accept the challenge of creating characters who are lost must also construct a way for them to be found. In fact, as readers too are often seeking some resolution, their satisfaction resides in the finding. There is a special ability in the writer who can both provide the reader what it is he or she desires, but also stay true to the story.
