Sourcebooks, Incorporated, 2019 - Fiction - 304 pages

Women's fiction with a wrenching twist, Where She Wentfollows one mother desperate to know which secrets took her daughter away from what should have been a normal college experience.

What happens when your worst fear comes true?

Her only daughter has just gone away to college, and Maggie O'Farrell knows she's turning into one of those anxious empty-nesters sheused to mock. Worrying constantly, texting more than she should, even occasionally dropping by the campus "just to say hi." But Maggie can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen to Emma.

And then, just as Maggie starts to relax, her daughter disappears.

The clues are disturbing. An empty dorm room where Emma was supposedly living. A mysterious boy described as Future Husband in her phone. Dormmates who seem more sinister than friendly. As Maggie combs over the campus looking for signs of her daughter, she learns more about Emma's life than she ever thought possible.

Kelly Simmons delivers another gripping novel in Where She Went, a conversation-starting story of letting go and the secrets that surface when the person hiding them is gone.
