  • Glad I read it!

    This is a story about family and the different types of people who make up a family. In an open adoption, there are so many struggles, and I thought this book did a great job of portraying the struggles of all involved. This is a book that was hard for me to rate. The first half gets 3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️, but the second half would get 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I am really glad I stuck with it, because the ending was worth it!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    This is an emotional family story that has so much love, hurt and necessary healing that can only be completed by honesty and moving forward day by day. It is such a wonderful, heartfelt novel that I truly enjoyed and read in a day! There are some twists that will leave you gasping as secrets are revealed! Well done!

  • The choices we make and how it affects our lives.

    This was a story about the choices, Mia and Suzanne made when they were young. As they grow up, they each become a woman who doesn't understand they are struggling with things, until Daisy does something that makes her want to spend her senior year with her biological mother Mia. Events happen that make the woman look at themselves, who they are and how did they get to this point. Neither one likes who they are and take steps to become the woman they want to be instead of just moving along not realizing what is happening. It is the story of their life and all that goes along with it. The story follows them from being young to Daisy going off to college. In between is the women they became along the way, just going through their busy life, not thinking about what was happening, just accepting. The day does come when they have to stop and look at themselves, and actually see who they are and what they have become. When that happens, they look at life and themselves differently, and start to think about their choices, their life, and who they are becoming. It changes who they are and the lives they have. I received an ARC from Bookouture through NetGalley.

  • A beautiful, tears-jerking story!

    The Child I Never Had is a very emotional read: I found myself on the verge of tears a few times. The story explores adoption, and in particular open adoption, from 3 different points of view: the birth mother (Mia), the adopting mother (Suzanne) and the adoptee (Daisy), They all give a different perspective to the story and each of them brings a distinct nuance to it. Here the author makes a brilliant job of letting all their voices heard. And even though the theme might seem quite specific, everyone with adolescent children can relate to the strained relationships between the characters in my opinion. Also, there are secrets and twists in the story that will make it difficult to stop reading. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartfelt and Full of Emotion!

    "At the heart of every adoption is loss". Kate Hewitt has done a masterful job of telling a story about adoption from the views of all involved: the child, the adoptive and biological parents. It is heartfelt and full of emotion that explores all the complexities, insecurities with some surprises along the way. Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

    Thanks for your feedback!
