When They Find Her - Lia Middleton
A haunting, emotional and nerve-shredding debut about a desperate mother, a tragic accident, and a terrible lie which spirals out of control.
Naomi always wanted to be a mother.
But a year ago, she made a dreadful mistake, and lost custody of her only child.
Now, her daughter has come to stay, and Naomi knows it's her one chance to re-build her family. But the night ends in a terrible accident. And Naomi tells a lie she can never take back:
She reports her daughter missing.
Within hours, her home is invaded. Journalists crowd the driveway. Police search the woods at the foot of the garden. Her ex-husband paces the hall.
And Naomi can't look away. Because the only thing worse than the lie she's told is the truth:
Naomi has no memory of what really happened that night...
