    1 thought on “Place Last Seen

    1. I have no idea how to even rate this book. The writing was good and kept me on edge. I was desperately reading this, and the suspense was killing me, and for that I could rate it 3.5 stars. But I have to say that as a mother of young children this book deeply disturbed me. I read about them leaving after the snow came without finding Maggie and I couldn't sleep. I know I shouldn't but I wish this book had had a happy ending. This was just too hard to read.

    2. Do you like to read about landscape? If so, Place Last Seen, by Charlotte McGuinn Freeman, is for you. “Place Last Seen” refers to exactly that–the spot where a Down’s Syndrome child disappeared from a panorama at least as spectacular as the one where I sat that incandescent day among the granite and the lakes, the one I haven't been able to forget though it was many years ago. Or perhaps it was that place on the mountain where I got lost and had to spend the whole night out, panicked, u [...]

    3. A first novel—the story of the Baker family (Richard, Anne, son Luke and daughter Maggie, who has Down’s Syndrome) who are taking a a day hike in the Desolation Wilderness of the Sierra Nevadas. While playing hide-and-seek with Luke, six-year-old Maggie runs away—and she can’t be found. Parents search desperately, then call Search and Rescue. The search is complicated because Maggie doesn’t think or act like other children. The search covers three days and nights with no success. The r [...]

    4. Overall, this book broke my heart. Truly, I would say it does follow the family some, but the person who will haunt me forever is one of the searchers. He becomes obsessed with the search, ultimately being injured. While the rest of the people sort of drop from my mind, I suspect I will remember him, and the lost girl forever.Many of the characters in this novel seem to be as mere sketches, not completely developed. The little girl is almost a shadow, which, I suppose, can be expected. However, [...]

    5. This was a book club book. I'll start with the positive: I learned a great deal about how to conduct a search & rescue. Now, for the negative: this book was WAY too long for the material. Most of the backstories weren't flushed out & seemed to be just filler in order for this story to be considered a novel. For example, did Ed win his custody battle for his son? I have no clue; that thread was dropped, like so many other subplots in this book. The author seemed to throw everything at the [...]

    6. My first novel, published by Picador USA in 2000. Out of stock indefinitely but available in some libraries, used bookstores, or you can contact me directly and I'd be happy to sell and ship you a signed copy. It is also now available from as a kindle book.

    7. A family hike turns tragic when the daughter goes missing during a game of hide and seek. One moment of not watching ~ who among us has not done that? A haunting family story.

    8. This book is a hard book to read but truly captures the difficulties/guilt associated with dealing with a child with special needs. The characters are sensitive and dynamic. a page turner

    9. This is an amazing book. The drama and sadness of a lost child with Down's syndrome is handled amazingly in this book.
