Publisher's Summary

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, which 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?

What the Critics Say

"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)

Good story, awful performance

I couldn't finish it. The performance is poor. The story itself is good, but the reader feels the need to just overindulge. She tries to create this artificial sense of suspense by taking double the needed time to read every sentence. The writing is good enough, there's no need for the narrator to feel she needs to over compensate. She ruins it.
