The Lost and The Found by Cat Clarke
When six-year-old Laurel Logan was abducted, the only witness was her younger sister. Faith’s childhood was dominated by Laurel’s disappearance – from her parents’ broken marriage and the constant media attention to dealing with so-called friends who only ever wanted to talk about her sister.
Thirteen years later, a young woman is found in the garden of the Logans’ old house, disorientated and clutching the teddy bear Laurel was last seen with. Laurel is home at last, safe and sound. Faith always dreamed of getting her sister back, without ever truly believing it would happen. But a disturbing series of events leaves Faith increasingly isolated and paranoid, and before long she begins to wonder if everything that’s lost can be found again…
This is the second novel I’ve read by Cat Clarke and I can guarantee that it won’t be the last.
I couldn’t put this book down, yes I was gripped but I was also invested in this story, i needed to know what had happened and how the family would be.
Faith is a fantastic character and I loved how she dealt with the changes in her life, it must’ve been so strange having her life turned upside down yet again.
I loved Faith’s relationship with her stepdad Michel, it felt at times as though he was the only person who truly understood the mindset ahe was in.
This is a read that is hard to put down, a story that will get into your head and leave you astonished!
