Maggie McFarrell is still reeling from her police officer husband's suspicious death when she sends her only child, Emma, off to college in the city, leaving a very empty nest and a palpable sense of dread. After 18 years of knowing where her daughter was every minute of every day, sending her out into the world alone is almost unthinkable. But Maggie forces herself to back away from constant texting and Facetiming, to give her daughter the space all the online articles say she needs to become an independent person. And then, just as Maggie starts to relax and believe that everything is going to be okay, Emma disappears. Where She Went is a story of letting go, and the secrets that surface when the person keeping them is gone.
Kelly is a former journalist and current novelist/advertising creative director. She is the author of Standing Still (2009) and The Bird House (2011), which both received outstanding trade reviews. She lives outside of Philadelphia.
