  • A Wonderfully Written, Heartful Novel

    A completely gripping and heart-wrenching story of a Mother's love for her children. An amazing read right from the start. All the characters in the books are well described and easy to relate to. Enjoyed reading this novel, full of raw emotion and love. Katherine's heart is shattered to bits when she learns about the loss of her baby daughter Adriana at birth and later devasted to learn that she can't have any more kids. Her dreams to have a big family are lost forever. As she comes to terms with the new life and cares for her twin son, Jamie, while all the while nursing her broken heart she formulates a plan to solve her dilemma. But will her husband Davis support her decision? Summary: An amazing brilliant read. Get ready for an emotional roller coaster, wonderfully written, heartfelt novel.

  • Great Read!

    My Only Child is an emotional rollercoaster of a read. I was hooked from page one and read it all in one day! This is a multi-layered story of mothers and daughters, husbands and wives and the secrets that keep us apart. The characters are well developed, although not always likeable, but you can figure out their motivations. A really good read overall!

  • Moving forward after losing a child.

    I received an ARC from Bookouture through NetGalley for an honest review. This was a hard book to read but I am glad I did read it. When Katherine went into labor there were complications and one of the twins didn't survive. Her and her husband, Davis, hadn't told anyone they were having twins, so they kept it a secret that their daughter died. Katherine wanted to name her daughter and have a funeral but her husband didn't want to but she did and he did attend the funeral with her. I was glad I read the book because I got an understanding of what a woman goes through when their child doesn't make it. Katherine didn't get along with her mother but her mother was always nice to her and wanted to be close to her daughter but Katherine just kept pushing her away. As the book moves along we learn both the mother and daughter have secrets and it looks like it will totally destroy them. Davis and Katherine did an International adoption and adopted a little boy. Things didn't work out the way Katherine had dreamed and it looked like Katherine was hitting rock bottom. The day did come, that she had a breakthrough and things started to turn around. The ending was so special. Sam Vickery did an amazing job writing this story. I think many people will have a better understanding of what someone goes through when they lose a child. The book shows us the difficulty of moving forward, figuring out what to do, and really how to just make it through a day. It is written with understanding, compassion, and so much feeling.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Emotional read

    This book is an emotional tale. It is about relationships: mothers, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives. And it is about mothering. It was easy to get into, I was attached to the story from the very beginning. As in so many good books, secrets play a major role. The secrets are not kept from the reader but the characters keep secrets from each other. I found the ending a little too neat and tidy. The relationships and angst were very realistic throughout the book but the conclusion was too hurried, making it not as realistic.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Emotional, beautifully written story!

    Katherine and Davis have kept their twin pregnancy a secret because of Katherine’s overbearing mother Hazel. When she has a difficult delivery and her infant daughter is born dead, the couple decide to tell her mother that only one baby, their son Jamie, was born. Then Katherine is told that she can never have another child. Plunged into a deep depression because of unsharable grief and premature menopause, Katherine becomes overly protective of Jamie and begins obsessive research into foreign adoption. Although Davis is not supportive, he’s puzzled by Hazel’s violent objections. The story is told is alternating chapters. Katherine’s voice is in the present while Hazel’s often describes the past. We begin to see how events have affected them in very different ways. My Only Child is an emotional, beautifully written story about what makes a family. Katherine, Davis and Hazel have already decided what they share and what they keep secret. At the novel’s conclusion, they have learned how to love. 4 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Sam Vickery for this ARC.
