Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone novella featuring the same characters as Rachel Abbott's best-selling novel, Stranger Child.

Someone is looking for Tasha. But does she want to be found?

Eight months ago Tasha Joseph ran away, and her stepmother, Emma, has been searching for her ever since. She is desperate to give Tasha the home and security she deserves. The problem is, Emma isn't the only one looking for Tasha. The police are keen to find her, too. She could be a vital witness in a criminal trial, and DCI Tom Douglas has a team constantly on the lookout for her. But Tasha remains hidden, and nobody appears to have seen her.

Suddenly the stakes are raised. Somebody is offering money - a lot of money - for information about Tasha's whereabouts. Tom and Emma know they have never been closer to finding the young girl. But they also recognize that she has never been closer to danger. Can they find her first?

She can run - but for how long can she hide?

Best.

There is fiction that has moved me beyond belief (Marilynne Robinson, Arundhati Roy, Lydia Millet, oh my god) and that will always live in my head. This book is, admittedly, not that. It's not precisely- and poignantly-crafted great literature for the ages. But it's not trying to be. It IS: well-researched, genuine, kind, thoughtful, and populated with characters who are Real and whom the reader loves. And: because I loved the characters when they were in their last book, and because that one ended unresolved, I am so unbelievably thankful that this book exists. So, so thankful. Despite my desperate love for the books listed above, *this* is the first time in my life that I have wanted to write a personal thank-you to an author.

*Note that you *should* read Stranger Child before you read this. You won't care in the same way, otherwise.

*Also note that the only observable flaw (and it was SMALL) (tiny spoiler alert follows) that I found was a little bit of what sounded like the author having done a lot of research around a topic (the types and mechanics of explosives, for instance) in order to gain the authority to write about it--GREAT!--and then maybe accidentally going on a little too long with her newfound knowledge. Such a minor flaw, though. I learned things, and now I can be impressive in conversations with firefighters!

Good follow up story

Any additional comments?

This is the follow up to Stranger Child. In this book Natasha (Tasha) is on the run and Emma, her step mother, is desperately looking for her. Tasha is hiding in the streets, alleys and gutters along with her new friend, a runaway boy who has been abused by his father. There is much action as the bad guys are also looking for Tasha, and are offering a huge award for her discovery. Tom, the FBI agent is also searching for Tasha in order to protect her.

In the meantime there is a love story regarding Emma unfolding. It involves a man she desperately loved many years ago, but whom she thought was dead. He also has a connection to Tom. This is short (less than 4 hours) but is cram packed with action and interest. I partidcularly recommend Nowhere Child if you want to know what happens to Emma and to the Stranger Child, Natasha. It is well performed.

Great Conclusion

So glad to get all the pieces wrapped up. I wanted to know what would happen for Jack. I think of him as awesome as Tom just edgier and definitely willing to do whatever it takes. Yay that Emma gets her HEA and Tasha finally gets a family.

Narration was great.

Outstanding

This short story really completed “The Stranger Child.” I highly recommend. I wish I had listened to this immediately after. The story fell right into place and the narration was great.

Almost as good as the first

This was a very good story. Author and narrator did great work. Can't wait to read and or listen to more stories by Rachel Abbot.

Stuck in the middle

I have to say not really a fan of this one. The story feels kind of like this is a book that’s taken out of a series of other books. Parentheses which if that is the case that I am I am totally off the mark on my stars and parentheses. I have to say not really a fan of this one. The story feels kind of like this is a book that’s taken out Out of a larger series. I spent most of the time listening to try and figure out who characters were that seems like they were already established. The story, and I don’t know if it’s because of the narration, But it’s kind of frustrating. I keep waiting for the main character to yet what’s going on and it seems like she’s more into fighting the story than being a part of it.
