    Heartwarming!

    This is the beautifully written story of motherhood, family and friends. Sara and Mike are married and their daughter, Ruby, is 3 years old. Ruby is prone to temper tantrums, has quit speaking and is quite difficult at times. Sara suspects something is wrong but Mike refuses to believe it or even help here with their daughter. He wants to pursue his acting career so they move back in with his mother. I really enjoyed this very touching story. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this heart-warming book.

    Very Well Done!

    A wonderfully written, engaging true-to-life story about motherhood and the lengths we go to in order to protect our children. I found myself alternately tearing up and chuckling. Tough subjects handled with love and care. Very well done!

    Doesn't disappoint

    I don't usually read this type of book and wasn't sure I would like it. I didn't like it, I loved it !!! What a wonderful book You laugh, you cry, you cheer on Ruby, Sheila and even her mother in law Barbara. There is a very good story in Where I Found You and I was turning the pages as fast as I could . My first but not last book by Emma Robinson. Thanks to Net Galley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read Where I Found You.

    An incredibly touching story.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars Sara is more than pleased to be a mother. However, she knows her three-year-old Ruby is unique. She met several milestones as expected, but has stopped speaking. Furthermore, Ruby's play is guided by order - she color codes her toys, lines them up perfectly, and will repeat playful tasks repeatedly. Mike thinks Ruby is a typical child. What is more, so does Mike's mother, Barbara. Currently, Mike has returned to acting, his first love that he gave up after marriage and fatherhood. Partly due to this, Mike has convinced Sara that moving in with Barbara will be best for the family financially. Mike can work hard on the play he just got hired to, and the couple can save money for a home of their own. So, not only is Sara worried about Ruby, she is now living in the home of a woman who never showed her much consideration or respect. As a matter of fact, she second-guesses Sara at every turn, whereas Mike can do no wrong. Sara takes a huge step, actually more than one. Not only does she find a part-time job, she even enrolls Ruby into a pre-school. This opens the door for Sara to act on her suspensions that things are not quite right with Ruby. After all, Sara is concerned for Ruby's happiness and future, as any well-meaning mother would be. Not only is Sara living in Barbara's home, she wakes up to discover that Mike has left them and that she is now a single parent. What a touching story! Where I Found You not only focuses on Sara working on obtaining a diagnosis for Ruby, and where she might be on the autism spectrum, she also works on her dream of being an artist, finding friends she can rely on, and even growing in her relationship with her mother-in-law. Emma Robinson has delivered an effective story and has handled it with grace. As I have a grandson and nephew who are autistic, I felt very comfortable with how Ms. Robinson wrote this story, including expressing how isolated Sara felt at times. I truly enjoy her writing and do look forward to reading much more in the future. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Emotional and touching.

    Ruby has been quite a handful ever since she was a tiny baby, never content, crying often. Sara loves Ruby, now three, so much yet there are tell-tale signs that something might not be quite right with her daughter and that she might need a professional opinion. Things become worse for the family when they move in with Barbara, Sara’s husband Mike’s mother, whilst they save up to buy their own home. Barbara is of the generation where children who had difficulties were seen as just plain rude or naughty. She is also quite posh and likes to keep up appearances to her neighbours and friends and Ruby not communicating and not doing as Barbara wants her to don’t go down well with her. Mike is useless, more concerned with trying to make a career as an actor and sponging off his mother than being a loving husband or father. They are too much effort for him and he will try any trick in the book not to have to spend time with Ruby. Once Sara gets Ruby into pre-school and she starts a part-time job she notices Ruby’s difficulties more and knows that she must help her daughter the best she can and in trying to do so she realises a lot about herself too. Where I Found You really touched a nerve with me as I am the mother of an Autistic sixteen-year-old. From him being little I could see something wasn’t right but I not only had to fight to get a diagnosis but also relatives too who either didn’t want to believe or wore blinkers. Being the mother of an Autistic child hardens you to the world as you see how cruel people can be and not only the Joe Bloggs on the street but those who are suppose to be there to help. It can also be the most worthy job when your child reaches milestones or does something you never expect them too. People believed that Sara was mollycoddling her daughter, making her that way, doing things for her so that she doesn’t get a chance to do them herself, including her husband and mother-in-law. A mother’s instinct is very powerful and I’m glad Sara stuck to what she believed. This is an emotional book that will resonate with any parent who has a child with a mental health issue. It is touching and truthful too. It will pull at your heart-strings and will open your eyes. A beautiful book that I flew through and didn’t want to put down.
