The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld

Naomi Cottle finds missing children.  When the police have given up their search and an investigation stalls, families call her.  She possesses a rare, intuitive sense, born out of her own experience, that allows her to succeed when others have failed.

Young Madison Culver has been missing for three years.  She vanished on a family trip to the mountainous forests of Oregon, where they’d gone to cut down a tree for Christmas.  Soon after she disappeared, blizzards swept the region and the authorities presumed she died from exposure.

But Naomi knows that Madison isn’t dead.  As she relentlessly pursues the truth behind Madison’s disappearance, shards of a dark dream pierce defences that have protected her for so long.  If she finds this child, will Naomi ultimately unlock the secrets of her own life?

Peer & Press Reviews

A glittering gem of a story – part mystery, part fairy tale, and all white-knuckled, edge-of-your-seat thriller… readers will be drawn in by Denfeld’s lyrical prose and undone by the brutal reality that Naomi uncovers, just beneath the snowy forest floor.

Library Journal

The sense of physical and psychological isolation is palpable in this moving exploration of loss, hope and human resilience.

Laura Wilson, Guardian

A darkly luminous story of resilience and the deeply human instinct for survival, for love.  Blending the magical thinking of childhood, of fairy tales, dreams, memories and nightmares, The Child Finder is a terrifying and ultimately uplifting novel that demands to be consumed and then once inside you – lingers…

A.M. Homes, author of May We Be Forgiven
