Where I Lost Her
Pub: February 23, 2016
Greenwood is at her formidable best as she brings her lush prose and distinctive style to this novel of literary suspense. Where I Lost Her is a story about the fine line between longing and madness, nurturing and obsession, as one woman searches for the truth about a mysterious child. Eight years ago, Tess and Jake were considered a power couple of the New York publishing world—happy, in love, planning a family. Failed fertility treatments and a heartbreaking attempt at adoption have fractured their marriage and left Tess edgy and adrift. A visit to friends in rural Vermont throws Tess’s world into further chaos when she sees a young, half-dressed child in the middle of the road, who then runs into the woods like a frightened deer. The entire town begins searching for the little girl. But there are no sightings, no other witnesses, no reports of missing children. As local police and Jake point out, Tess’s imagination has played her false before. And yet Tess is compelled to keep looking, not only to save the little girl she can’t forget but to salvage her broken heart as well.
