On one fateful day, in one fateful moment, Megan loses her youngest daughter Emma. Only two years old, she walks out of the front door of the home that Megan shares with her husband and three young daughters and she disappears without a trace. Two years later Emma still has not been found. The police seem no closer to finding her, no new information has been found, yet Megan refuses to give up. As the emotional distance between herself and her husband grows and as Megan begins to realize that her other daughters need her to be emotionally present in their lives, Megan must decide if she is able to let Emma go forever.
It’s every mother’s worst nightmare: having your child taken away from you, not knowing what has happened to them. Every time the phone rings you jump, fearing the worst while hoping for the best. Every where you look, you think you see your child. I couldn’t find fault in any way that Megan reacted, because deep in my heart I know I would react the same way.
Megan is faced with a brutal decision: move forward with Peter and stop her urgent search for Emma, or risk losing her family. Megan isn’t sure she can go on without the love and support of Peter, but has too much damage been done to save their marriage?
Finding Emma is a thought-provoking and often heart-wrenching read that left me contemplating what I would do if I were in Megan’s situation. It made me think about the families of missing children everywhere.
