The Child Finder
by Rene Denfeld
PBR Review:
(by- Linda ) What an original and fresh take on the psychological thriller genre. It's hard to put into word how beautifully written this story is; you'll want to read slowly and linger over the words. The book is full of raw emotion that is tempered by a sense of magical realism the author weaves into the story.

It's about five year old Madison, who goes missing in the woods of Oregon while looking for a Christmas tree with her family, and Naomi, the child finder who goes looking for her. The story goes back and forth between the current search and Naomi's own story of being a lost child herself. Any crime against a child is a dark topic, and although presented tastefully, it's still difficult to read about - so beware. Recommend for those who enjoy literary thrillers.
