Gripping, thrilling, and a roller coaster of a ride. This is a must book you have to add to your TBR if you haven’t read it already.
The Child Finder is a book that has been on my TBR for a while and I finally got the chance to read it. I have heard so much about this book recently from friends and online, that I knew it was the kind of book that I would just devour and love.
This was my first book I have read by Rene Denfeld and trust me, it won’t be my last. This book was so well written, and it draws you in from the very beginning and keeps you hooked right through to the last page. This is the kind of book that I love to read, as you are always turning the pages to find out what will happen next and cannot seem to put the book down. I read this in just one day it was that incredible of a book. I love Rene’s writing style and the way she captivates the reader with her writing. There is a strong female lead in the book as well which I loved.
This book follows the story of The Child Finder, a woman named Naomi. She seeks out to find children that have gone missing from their families with a trace. Some she is able to find, some she cannot. Some have happy endings and are returned to their families, some not so much of a happy ending.
The Culvert family contacts Naomi as their young daughter Madison had gone missing. They were out in the Skookum National Forest in Oregon looking for a Christmas tree, only to have her disappear as she seemed to vanish into thin air. One moment she was there happy with her parents, the next she was gone. The Culvert family have hopes that The Child Family can help them locate their missing daughter and return her alive and safe to her home, as it is their last hope of finding their daughter.
The Child Finder has a knack for finding lost and missing children, as when she was younger she too was a Lost Child. As you read the story Naomi’s past is revealed slowly in bits and pieces.
I loved this book as I found Rene had a way of writing a sad and terrifying story about a sensitive issues including a monster, and had a way of writing it in a beautiful way that you can’t help but feel for everyone involved, including the monster.
The characters were all well written about and I love the character development in the story as you get to know each one of them individually and what makes them who they are today. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters and develop empathy for them as their story unfolds.
Will Naomi be able to find their missing daughter Naomi? And if so, will she be alive? You’ll have to read this amazing book to find out! 🙂
