The Nowhere Child reviewed by Vivian

Twenty eight year old Kim Leamy’s world is turned upside down when a stranger approaches her claiming she was abducted as a two year old. The claims are initially easily dismissed – it seems absurd that she was abducted from America and taken half way around the world to Australia without ever knowing before now. But the one true person who has all the answers – her mother, passed away years ago. There are still unanswered questions from Kim’s childhood which continue to niggle at her and the only way to find the answers once and for all is to travel back to Kentucky to find the truth. From here the plot thickens and takes an unexpected twist turning this book into an engaging thriller.

Wow! I could not put this book down. I loved the characters and the story line. I enjoyed how each chapter alternated between the present and the past cleverly keeping you hanging and wanting to read more. It’s no wonder this book has already won a literary prize. This book is screaming to be made into a movie! A great read.
