The Girl You Lost by Kathryn Croft


Book Description:

Eighteen years ago your baby daughter was snatched. Today, she came back.

A sinister and darkly compelling psychological thriller from the No.1 bestselling author of The Girl With No Past.

Eighteen years ago, Simone Porter’s six-month-old daughter, Helena, was abducted. Simone and husband, Matt, have slowly rebuilt their shattered lives, but the pain at losing their child has never left them.

Then a young woman, Grace, appears out of the blue and tells Simone she has information about her stolen baby. But just who is Grace – and can Simone trust her?

When Grace herself disappears, Simone becomes embroiled in a desperate search for her daughter and the woman who has vital clues about her whereabouts.

Simone is inching closer to the truth but it’ll take her into dangerous and disturbing territory.

Simone lost her baby. Will she lose her life trying to find her?

My Thoughts:

The Girl You Lost is a dark psychological thriller which has more twists than a helter skelter!

Nothing could be worse than to lose a child, especially when you don’t know what has happened to them, whether they are living or dead. Somehow though Simone and her husband Matt seem to have pulled themselves together and got on with their lives by throwing themselves into their work.

You can’t help but be totally gripped by the whole story line. A missing child to turn up after eighteen years but even then the circumstances in how they turn up is even more intriguing. I have no idea if I could have been as composed as Simone was throughout the story. She seemed to take the whole situation extremely well and quite calmly.

There are just so many twists and turns in the story and the further that Simone got into looking for her daughter as well as trying to find Lucas, certainly unravels some shocking revelations.

The Girl You Lost is a novel that once you have started you will not want to put down. With twists and turns a plenty, this is one compelling read that you will not want to miss.
