The Child Finder

The Child FinderThe Child Finder by Renee Denfeld

"The recently released novel The Child Finder, by Rene Denfeld takes place in a national forest in Oregon. The main character is a woman who investigates missing children. Naomi, the investigator, was abducted herself when very young, and because of her background, she has chosen this specific career to help locate other lost children. The author introduces some colorful characters living in the sparsely populated areas in and around the forest. Also involved in the search is the sheriff and the park ranger. Besides the search for one child who went missing when looking for a Christmas tree with her parents, there is also an element of the old folktale, the snow child, that runs through the book. All of the story happens during a snowy winter. The author has also included an interesting back story about when the young investigator was missing and had no memory of who she was. All of these elements are believable and add to the story. The conclusion to the book was very suspenseful and exciting. I enjoyed the book a lot."
