Debut author Emily Murdoch tells a deeply moving spellbinding story of a young girl’s courage and survival in a darkly observed contemporary America. Carey’s childhood is hard; she lives in the woods with her mother and her younger sister. There’s little comfort and not much to eat. Often her mother disappears for several days on end; when that happens, Carey has been told to be sure to keep herself and her younger sister hidden. But then strangers do come by. Carey’s life is about to change forever. She doesn’t seem to have any choice and she doesn’t know what choice to make.

Synopsis

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch

What happens in the woods, stays in the woods...For almost as long as she can remember, Carey has lived in a camper van in the heart of the forest with her mother and little sister, Jenessa. When her mother disappears, Carey's father arrives and everything changes. Suddenly Carey and Jenessa must adapt to the wider world of family, school and boys. But Carey feels trapped by a terrible secret. If she tells, it could destroy her future. If she doesn't, will she ever be free?

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
