An April 2015 LibraryReads Pick

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Reconstructing Amelia comes another harrowing, gripping novel that marries psychological suspense with an emotionally powerful story about a community struggling with the consequences of a devastating discovery.

At the end of a long winter in well-to-do Ridgedale, New Jersey, the body of an infant is discovered in the woods near the town’s prestigious university campus. No one knows who the baby is, or how her body ended up out there. But there is no shortage of opinions.

When freelance journalist and recent Ridgedale transplant Molly Sanderson is unexpectedly called upon to cover the story for the Ridgedale Reader, it’s a risk, given the severe depression that followed the loss of her own baby. But the bigger threat comes when Molly unearths some of Ridgedale’s darkest secrets, including a string of unreported sexual assaults going back twenty years. Meanwhile, Sandy, a high school dropout, searches for her volatile and now missing mother, and PTA president Barbara struggles to help her young son, who’s suddenly having disturbing outbursts.

Told from the perspectives of Molly, Barbara, and Sandy, Kimberly McCreight’s taut and profoundly moving novel unwinds the tangled truth about the baby’s death, revealing that these three women have far more in common than they realized, that the very worst crimes are committed against those we love, and that—sooner or later—the past catches up to all of us.

Review Quotes

“A roller coaster of a novel…How lucky for us readers—McCreight has once again proven herself to be an insightful writer capable of taking us on a hell of a ride.”

Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“This new novel by Edgar Award nominee Kimberly McCreight presents this unfolding, tangled story through the voices of its three main protagonists. One of the most gripping novels of the season.”


“The discovery of an infant’s body rocks a seemingly idyllic New Jersey town in McCreight’s intense sophomore effort…Genuinely suspenseful and disturbing; McCreight delivers a provocative, timely novel that reminds us that sometimes the things that shine the brightest have the dirtiest underbellies.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Edgar-finalist McCreight smoothly juggles multiple voices in her strong second novel…Deft writing makes for a thoroughly riveting tale.”

Publishers Weekly

“[A] suspenseful story about the ripple effect of tragedy…Using flashbacks and multiple narrators, McCreight keeps the tension tight all the way to the satisfying conclusion.”


“The story is told from the point of view of three Ridgedale women…and is supplemented with transcripts, journal entries, and newspaper clippings in a manner reminiscent of McCreight’s successful debut novel, Reconstructing Amelia…McCreight has a keen grasp of the epistolary technique and is adept at providing readers the puzzle pieces they need to build a broader picture. A solid follow-up.”

Library Journal

“Coiled as tightly as a spring, Where They Found Her begins with a small town’s tragedy and doesn’t relent until every secret, and character, is exposed. Kimberly McCreight has written another satisfying, dark page-turner that pounces off the page.”

Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, author of Bittersweet

“McCreight’s much-anticipated second novel is a gripping and tender examination of misplaced trust. Pair with Keija Parssinen’s The Unraveling of Mercy Louis for contrasting stories about the impact of an infant’s death in small-town America.”
