You were adopted’. Three short words and Sabina’s life fractures. There would forever be a Before those words, and an After. Pregnant with her own child, Sabina can’t understand how a mother could abandon her daughter, or why her parents have kept the past a secret. Determined to find the woman who gave her away, what she discovers will change everything, not just for Sabina, but for the women who have loved her all these years.
Oh my , The Secret Daughter is by far the most powerfully emotionally charged books that I have ever read.
Sabine is eight weeks pregnant and finds out that she is adopted. What should be a happy time for her, is suddenly a time of anger, secrets and lies.
Go back forty years and we read the impassioned letters that Lilly writes to her love, James.
The Secret Daughter tells a true account of the maternity homes of the time and of the adoptions that took place.
it’s neither pretty or kind, and this tale brings tears. Kelly Rimmer has written a superb story of family, and what real love is all about.
Beautifully told, it is heartbreaking, but also life affirming.
