The blog for books and movies

Kimberly Leamy is a photography teacher in Melbourne, Australia. Twenty-six years earlier, Sammy Went, a two-year old girl vanished from her home in Manson, Kentucky. An American accountant who contacts Kim is convinced she was that child, kidnapped just after her birthday. She cannot believe the woman who raised her, a loving social worker who died of cancer four years ago, crossed international lines to steal a toddler.

On April 3rd, 1990, Jack and Molly Went’s daughter Sammy disappeared from the inside their Kentucky home. Already estranged since the girl’s birth, the couple drifted further apart as time passed. Jack did his best to raise and protect his other daughter and son while Molly found solace in her faith.

Comments on: "The nowhere child – Christian White" (1)

  1. This is one of the best books, it is not the usual topic I would go for however I honestly couldn’t put it down. The past and the present collide and the past unfolds and the mystery begins to unravel about the main character. This book was written with the most intriguing words, phrases and there was not a dull moment in the book. I was left to guess and predicting after each page, I wanted to keep reading! I would recommend this to anyone who loves mystery and trying to guess what happens next, the age I would recommend this to all ages that are mature as it is quite confronting at times, anywhere between 15 or above. This book was a solid 10 for me!!
