Powerful, Emotional Read
A Mother’s Secret by Caroline Finnerty is a heart wrenching contemporary novel about family, love and loss. It totally consumed me. This is a very emotional read about a family that is ripped apart by loss and secrets. There are many questions but no answers as the family is suspended in limbo.
A couple are also shattered by events as what was once solid ground is shaken.
There is the whole debate about nature or nurture – what is it that makes you a parent?
We witness the strong love of a three year old for her family. Caroline Finnerty has perfectly captured her mannerisms and speech patterns. Her bubbly personality lodged in my heart.
There is the difficult topic of infertility. Its impact on lives is painful to witness.
Caroline Finnerty has written a powerful tale that is all consuming. I could not put it down as it tugged at my heart. I look forward to reading much more by her.
