Wild little girl found in park

Does anyone know the name of the book where the chikd and her mother are kidnapped, the mother dies, and the kidnapper keeps the child chained up  in a cave in the woods for several years.  Then the kidnapper is killed in an automobile accident, the child escapes from the cave and is found running wild in a town park.  While the police work to identify the child, she is taken in by a physcologist who teaches her how to behave in civilization and grows to love her.  The child will not sleep in a bed, eats with her hands, and has limited verbal skills.

"Magic Hour" by Kristin Hannah

"In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past.

Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past—although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself"
