CHILD OF MINE
Flight instructor Jack Livingston has been raising his eight-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. When he travels, Natalie is tenderly cared for by her Amish nanny, Laura Mast, who loves the little girl as her own.
Eight excruciating years ago, Kelly Maines's baby was kidnapped. Determined to find her child, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. And now, with the clock ticking, one last clue from a private investigator ignites a tiny flame of hope: Just a few miles away lives a young girl who matches the profile.
Can this be, at long last, Kelly's beloved daughter?
An intriguing story that alternates between Kelly's desperate search for her kidnapped daughter and Jack's life raising his orphaned niece. The plot thickens as their stories intersect. Far from predictable there's a few surprising twists that left me gasping out loud.
A touching story that explores the depths of a mother's love. Kelly's situation is heartbreaking -- her life has been on hold for eight years as she searches for her missing daughter. She clings to her faith but that doesn't stop her from taking things into her own hands. Her struggle to let go and let God is palpable.
Jack and Natty are an awesome duo. There's some laugh out loud moments between those two. And Natty's Amish nanny makes a unique addition to their little family. But love is complicated and each of the Lewis's character faces the challenge of finding peace with their own situation.
An incredible, rich, hopeful read.
