Book Review: The Child Finder by Rene Denfield

Book Rating (out of 5):

“Three years ago, Madison Culver disappeared when her family was choosing a Christmas tree in Oregon’s Skookum National Forest. She would be eight years old now—if she has survived.

Desperate to find their beloved daughter, certain someone took her, the Culvers turn to Naomi, a private investigator with an uncanny talent for locating the lost and missing. Known to the police and a select group of parents as “the Child Finder,” Naomi is their last hope.”

The Child Finder is a hauntingly disturbing, but beautifully written book. It took me ages longer to read this than it should of because I kept getting distracted with work and life. But still, I kept finding my way back to it.

It’s a short read and an effective one. A story of children who were once lost and what happens to them when/if they are found. How they adjust when they grow up.

Some of them are forever broken. Some of them become monsters themselves. One of them became a child finder.

The Child Finder is a story of survival and what that looks like for some children during and after the trauma.
