Publisher's summary

"[Katherine Littrell's] narration seamlessly moves between Australian and Kentucky accents, allowing individual characters to shine." (AudioFile magazine)

"The Nowhere Child is a well-written thriller that avoids the clichés of the genre. The characters are interesting and believable and the book kept me reading up to the satisfying conclusion." (Phillip Margolin, New York Times best-selling author of The Third Victim)

Winner of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, The Nowhere Child is screenwriter Christian White’s internationally best-selling debut thriller of psychological suspense about a woman uncovering devastating secrets about her family - and her very identity....

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 3, 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. The Church of the Light Within, a Pentecostal fundamentalist group that handles poisonous snakes as part of its worship, provided that faith. Without Sammy, the Wents eventually fell apart.

Now, with proof she and Sammy are in fact the same person, Kim travels to America to reunite with a family she never knew she had. And to solve the mystery of her abduction - a mystery that will take her deep into the dark heart of religious fanaticism where she must fight for her life against those determined to save her soul....
