Finding Emma, by Steena Holmes

"Heartwrenching! Four year old Emma goes missing. Her family searches frantically for her but there are no leads. Now Megan, Emma's mother, sees her daughter in every child. More than once she has brought hardship on the family because of mistaken identity. Two years later, and the search is taking its toll on the entire family. Megan's husband and daughters feel like they've not only lost their little sister, but their mother too. But can Megan ever stop searching? And, if she does, will she miss her daughter's face in the crowd? As a parent, this story stirred some of my deepest fears...the loss of a child. It is poignantly told and had me smiling at times and crying at others. If you enjoy stories about love and family, you will enjoy this story." -- Amazon reviewer

Megan is the harried but happy stay-at-home mother of three little girls living in a small town. Her life implodes when her youngest daughter, Emma, disappears on her third birthday.
Two years later, Megan is preparing to commemorate Emma’s birthday and the anniversary of her kidnapping, compelled to keep her name alive in the minds of her community and her family. Her commitment to Emma, however, borderlines on obsession as she follows the families of little girls who look like the daughter she lost.
Her obsession with finding Emma has distanced Megan from both friends and family. Her two older daughters are resentful of her relentless and fruitless search for their sister, and her husband pleads with her to accept that Emma is gone so that the family can move on with their lives.
Meanwhile, in the same small town, Jack is beginning to question his wife’s secrecy about their adored granddaughter, Emmie. As Dottie slips into dementia and becomes increasingly protective over Emmie, he can’t help but wonder if there could be a dark secret that Dottie is keeping from him.
Jack and Megan’s worlds finally intersect at the town carnival, when Megan snaps a photograph of a little girl on her grandfather’s shoulders.

Meet the Author

Growing up as a small town Canadian girl, there wasn't much to do but ride your bike, hang out with friends on the beach and daydream. I always wanted to write but never dreamed it was something I could do as a career. I love to travel and fell in love with the sheep covered hillside, old castles and romantic history of Scotland and England. I dream about waking up in Tuscany and touring small town shops in the south of France with my husband, of placing my toes in the ocean and experiencing history first hand. As a mother with three daughters, I'm learning that teaching them to pursue their dreams is a lasting legacy. I love to wake up to the Rocky Mountains, will forever enjoy the taste of coffee and chocolate and can't imagine the day when a story doesn't unfold in my heart. Living a life with passion and pursuing dreams is a life well lived.

Her latest release - FINDING EMMA is a heart-wrenching story of a devotion that borders on obsession when a mother must choose between her family and finding her missing daughter.

"FINDING EMMA may be the most heart-wrenching and heart-warming book I have ever read...Tense, emotional and realistic it will ring your emotions dry."
