My arms ache with the need to reach and hold my precious child, and then to never let go. But I can’t. I know I can’t.’
Heather is devastated. There’s no way she can keep her baby. She can barely pay the bills as it is. But when she meets Grace, a wealthy, single career woman, who wants a baby more than anything, Heather believes she has found the perfect adoptive mother.
As Grace and Heather’s lives become entwined, they are tested to breaking point, though neither can deny the other’s love for the child. But just when they think they are learning how to live with each other, they receive devastating news that turns their fragile world upside down.
Will either mother know what is the right thing to do for the child they both love?
An absolutely gripping, emotional drama with a tear-jerking twist. If you love Jodi Picoult, Kelly Rimmer or Diane Chamberlain, this will warm your heart, make you cry, and stay with you forever.
This book takes a real rollercoaster ride through your emotions. It deals with an adoption and how hard that is for both mothers. It gives you several things to think about and appreciate how hard this must be for all parties. Your heart breaks for Heather who is finding life a real financial struggle when she discovers she’s expecting another baby. She decides to go down the adoption route and we meet Grace who is a high flying exec. I wasn’t sure I’d have picked Grace if I’d been looking for a ‘forever mummy’- but it gives you lots of food for thought about the decisions that everyone made.
I had various feelings throughout the book where I wasn’t sure how I thought it would pan out and even which mum I would side with. I could feel the heartbreak and the difficulties each mum has.
I was totally gripped throughout the book.
