Madison is a girl who was five when she disappeared from the remote Oregon forests while her family was looking for a Christmas tree. Three years later as a last resort the parents contact Naomi who is known as “the child finder”. She has a knack and reputation for finding children who have gone missing. She finds them although they aren’t always still alive. The parents, though, are still hopeful after all these years that she was able to survive the rugged, cold Oregon outdoors. Naomi also has a special calling to look for these children because she has a past herself. Something bad happened to her as a child and she has no memory of it which haunts her, leading her to feel called to help these children. The story is well developed and beautifully written as she goes on her search to find Madison. The book will be published September 5, 2017. This was just voted as a Library Reads selection for September.
