Not ‘The Lost Child’…

I thought I had the perfect title for my novel, ‘The Lost Child’; it resonated with several of the story-lines in this, the latest Radwinter story. There is the literal story of a woman’s daughter who ran away from home nearly twenty years ago, the ‘lost’ inner child of the narrator, a baby given up at birth for adoption… It seemed perfect! But as usual I checked out whether there were any other books or novels called that… and oh dear… there are:

  • The Story of the Lost Child, The (Neapolitan Novels 4), Elena Ferrante, published September 2015
  • The Lost Child, Ann Troup, published May 2015
  •  The Lost Child, Caryl Phillips, published September 2015
  • The Lost Child, Julie Myerson, published July 2009

and if I wanted to change it to be something about lost children, then there are plenty of books with that title too:

  • The Lost Children, Mary MacCracken, published January 2014
  • The Lost Child of Philomena,  Lee by Martin Sixsmith, published May 2010
  • The Lost Boy, Dave Pelzer, published February 2014
  • Signs for Lost Children, Sarah Moss, published July 2015
  • Little Girl Lost, Mia Marconi, published May 2015
  • Mysteries of Ravenstorm Island: The Lost Children, Gillian Philip, published September 2014
  • Colony Ship Eternum: The Lost Children of Earth, Jim Horn, December 2015

So… Thinking cap back on… abandon the lost children, and think of something else!
