The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld

Dec 28, 2017

It's been well over a year since I last posted in my book blog. I've been busy. I've been distracted. I've spent so much time focusing on other writing and catching up on my other blog, that this one was ignored. I have been keeping track of my books so I might catch up someday.

I'm starting with a book I just finished. It had such an impact on me that I needed to post about it right now.

My mom bought me The Child Finder for Christmas.

I started reading it when we got back home on Boxing Day. It took me three days to finish it, but to be honest, I wanted to finish it the first night.

I loved this book, but my reasons for wanting to finish it aren't because I loved it. It's because I needed a happy ending. I had nightmares the first night I read it. I was restless the second. Tonight, will be better now that I've finished it.

This wasn't a scary book in the sense that it was in the horror genre. It was scary because it was so real. The world is full of scary situations, and this didn't shy away from that.

Somehow in the midst of the fear and disturbing aspects, the writing was still magical.

I don't like to give a lot away about the books I read because I think people should read them and find out for themselves.

It's not a book for anybody who wants an easy read. It's not for the faint of heart. It is good though. It was still a quick read for me. My heart felt heavy reading it, and at times, I cried. Other times, I hugged my child, and swore I'd never let him go.

I had a feeling the ending would make things better. It did, but it made me want to know more about the main character. I hope their are more books about her.

That's all I'm going to say. I think the writing was wonderful. I'm going to be reading more by Rene Denfeld as soon as I can.

Happy Reading.
