In her page-turning new novel, T. Greenwood follows one woman's journey through heartbreak and loss to courage and resolve, as she searches for the truth about a missing 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.
Blending her trademark lyrical prose with a superbly crafted and suspenseful narrative, "Where I Lost Her "is a gripping, haunting novel from a remarkable storyteller."

Eight years ago Tess Waters, a freelance copy editor, underwent a traumatic experience adopting a child from Guatemala, which is played out in Greenwoods novel in italicized chapters through flashbacks. Everyone thought she had lost her mind, but she knew better. Now visiting friends in Vermont, she is the only one to see a child wander across the road and disappear into the dense woods. But after the townspeople and authorities rally to find her, days go by without a clue or even a missing person report, and public opinion shifts to suspicion and doubt. Can Tesss strained marriage stand the stress of her sighting of the disappeared child, which reminds her and her husband of their earlier disturbing adoption? Or did the years of emotional pain conspire against her and cause an illusion? In her determined search for the little girl she saw, Tess fights to redeem her own brokenness. Greenwood (Two Rivers) crafts believable relationships with searing, heartbreaking realism. Showcasing the power of friendship and of hope, this mysterious, suspenseful exploration of the human psyche will keep readers turning pages and losing sleep. (Mar.)
