A NOVELIST from Watlington is to release her fourth book.

The Lost Girl by Liz Harris will be published on Sunday.

The story is set in 1870s Wyoming and follows Charity Walker as she faces the trials and tribulations of life as a Chinese-American girl in the harsh mining town of Carter.

Charity’s dual nationality makes things even harder for her as she is shunned by the American and Chinese community alike.

Her only friend is Joe, the boy who saved her when she was just a baby, but when he leaves town, Charity finds herself completely alone.

A friendship with the only other Chinese girl in town makes Charity feel like she could finally belong somewhere.

Mrs Harris, who has been writing for 12 years, has enjoyed success with her previous three releases, The Road Back, A Bargain Struck and Evie Undercover. The Road Back, which was also set in Wyoming, won a 2012 Book of the Year Award from Coffee Time Romance in America. A Bargain Struck was shortlisted for the 2014 Romantic Novel of the Year Award.

Mrs Harris, a former English teacher, came to live in Watlington with her husband Richard 14 years ago.
