Staff Reviews


I was blown away by this thoughtful thriller. It is a story of identity. Is it possible to choose who we are despite the circumstances thrust upon us? Naomi has no memory of her life before she was 12 when she was found running naked across a field and was taken to the police far from where she was found. Now, as an adult, she spends all of her time and resources finding missing children that law enforcement has given up on. And she is very, very good at it. Now she is searching for Madison, missing for 3 years in the deep woods. We also hear Madison's experiences trying to survive her capture. I loved this!

“In Rene Denfeld's new novel, a woman who searches for abducted or lost children must confront her own memoires of being abducted as a young girl. While searching for a girl recently kidnapped in her hometown, she is haunted by her past and the lies that she used to weave her present, lies that often took the form of stories. Meanwhile, the abducted girl must survive years of terror and heartbreak, all while constructing a magical mythology to shield herself from the atrocities of her captor. These characters, especially the women, are strong and imaginative. Readers who enjoyed Room will devour this literary thriller, which promises to open up Denfeld's readership to a much wider level.”
