From the New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Girls comes this chilling, harrowing thriller set in rural Vermont about a recluse who believes the young girl he's found in the woods is the reincarnation of his missing daughter, returned to help him solve her and his wife's disappearance.

"I won’t say a word. Cross my heart and hope to die…" Jonah Baum, a professor of poetry at a local college in Vermont, sees his ordinary life come tumbling down when his wife and young daughter vanish from their home. No evidence of a kidnapping. No sign of murder. No proof that Rebecca didn’t simply abandon her marriage. Just Sally’s crude and chilling drawings, Jonah’s little lies, and the sheriff’s nagging fears that nothing is what it seems. For Sally’s best friend, Lucinda, it’s something else. She trusts in Sally not to just disappear, not after they’ve shared so many secrets—especially about the woods and what they saw there. But she’ll never tell. No one would believe her anyway. As the search for Rebecca and Sally intensifies, and as suspicion falls on Jonah, the disappearances become more relentlessly haunting than anyone can imagine. Because what’s seen in the light of day is not nearly as terrifying as what remains hidden in the dark…

“Dark, claustrophobic, and hypnotic, a classy thriller that will make you sleep with the lights on, if you sleep at all.”

“The past wraps around the present like a vine in Eric Rickstad’s dark, twisting novel. Atmospheric, moving, and deep, What Remains of Her is as much a complex, beautifully wrought meditation on love and family, as it is a relentless mystery that will keep you riveted page after haunting page.”

What Remains of Her is a brilliantly creepy page-turner. A gripping, unsettling thriller electrified by Rickstad’s rich and haunting prose.”

What Remains of Her is chilling and heartbreaking at the same time. A twisty, diabolical read.”

“A gorgeous thrill ride of a novel. Eric Rickstad’s What Remains of Her is a literary page-turner that delves into the sacred and sometimes fraught relationships between fathers and daughters. In Rickstad’s hands, what will remain with you is the satisfaction of a story masterfully told.”
