From Bestselling Authors David & Beverly Lewis

Flight instructor Jack Livingston has been raising his eight-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. When he travels, Natalie is tenderly cared for by her Amish nanny, Laura Mast, who loves the little girl as her own.
 
Eight excruciating years ago, Kelly Maines's baby was kidnapped. Determined to find her child, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. And now, with the clock ticking, one last clue from a private investigator ignites a tiny flame of hope: Just a few miles away lives a young girl who matches the profile.
 
Can this be, at long last, Kelly's beloved daughter?

"Heartwarming scenes, well-developed storylines and realistic characters combine in this tale of a mother's love." -RT Book Reviews

There isn’t a book that I haven’t read by these authors. I am a huge fan of Beverly Lewis and quickly becoming a fan of David Lewis. When I first started to read this book I wondered where the authors were going with it. What a clever story line.

As readers get into the story of Kelly Maines and Jack Livingstone they will find that there are some twists and turns to it. It is not your cut and dried ending. In fact, I was kept guessing until near the very end. (Well done David and Beverly Lewis!)

What you will read about is heartache, unforgiveness, many sorrows, happiness, joy, forgiveness and trust. A story that catches you completely off guard.

This story will make you feel what the characters feel. Many characters will capture your heart. One little girl named Nattie will be such one. Without a doubt you will keep the pages turning to find out the ending.

I highly recommend this book. I loved it!

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.

I couldn't put the book down from the moment I downloaded it onto my kindle. I carried it around with me as I made myself a lunch, went to the restroom or went to get a drink. I simply didn't want to take a break from the story.

I like Beverly Lewis' books - I can't say I've read every one of them...but I've read a lot of them. But to see a book that is a mystery - along with having "plain" people in it...well done.

The storyline is easy to follow - one woman has been looking for her daughter for over 8 years. Her daughter had been sold to an adoption "ring" by the woman's husband - who died shortly afterwards from an overdose. She's been searching for her daughter for years....thanks to some folks who are helping her with her expenses.

I won't say more because the story has so much more "meat" to it than that.

The story was fulfilling and the lead-up to the ending was not rushed and so when the ending came...it felt right. I had closure. While I would love to see a sequel - the fact is that I can put this book down and be content that the ending picked up all the loose ends and knit them together successfully.

I would like to see more books by this husband and wife team because while they are definitely different from the ones Beverly writes alone...they have a lot of depth to them and bring in another perspective simply from having a second writer.

Thanks for a great read! I will keep my eyes open for more books from you both!

This book was such a page tuner. I have to say I am never disappointed by any of Beverly's books.

You are going to love the twits and turns, but oh you will never see the ending coming.

I love the characters, and the storyline was not your same ole Amish story.

I have to give this book 5 stars and I recommend it.

I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review

Child of Mine is different from other books by Beverly Lewis with a nanny being the only Amish factor in this story, but it is a winner for both her and husband David. A sweet, heartwarming and intriguing story of deceit, heartaches, pain, redemption, forgiveness, love and happiness with a surprise ending. They give us an insight to real life issues of selling babies on the black market, kidnapped children and the importance of DNA testing. There are strong and lovable characters including the ones with minor roles in the story.
Eight years ago Kelly Maines had a husband and a baby girl that she loved with all her heart when horror of horrors her baby is kidnapped and sold on the black market and her husband is dead. With the help of dear friends and a private investigator she has been searching for her daughter Emily. She has just about given up hope until she is given another lead as to where her daughter might be living.
Jack Livingston has been raising his 9 year old niece Natalie since her adoptive parents were killed in and accident. He loves his niece and is very protective of her.
Natalie loves her uncle Jack and is a little spoiled. She also loves her nanny and is hoping to one day find her real mother.
Laura the Amish nanny loves Natalie and is helping Jack raise and care for her. Laura loves Natalie as if she were her own child.
Following the lead her private investigator has given her, Kelly meets Jack, Natalie and Laura. How is she to approach Jack in order to find out if Natalie is her Emily. Could Natalie be her long lost daughter? Jack and Kelly soon have feelings for each other and start dating. Soon he finds out the reason Kelly has come into their lives. He feels angry and betrayed.

When I found that over 160 reviews had been written about Beverly Lewis and David Lewis’s recent novel, Child of Mine, I wondered if one more review would be needed. What could I possibly add? Indeed, this is an intriguing story! Many a book by Beverly Lewis has kept me captivated, however the addition of her husband David Lewis changed the complexion of the writing of Beverly just a skosh. This pair added several dimensions I had not noticed in other Beverly Lewis publications. The authoress Lewis has written exclusively about Amish, but there was only one tie-in Amish person in this story, Laura, which will be explained momentarily.

For instance, I was caught up in the mystery involving a kidnapped baby Emily by her druggie of a daddy and sold to the black market. His drug overdose following this inhumane action was well deserved, in my estimation. However, the long eight year search for her daughter, made a bit easier through funds from a compassionate couple and a private detective, was exhausting and led nowhere. The story begins with Kelly Maines resorting to tricking an eight year old girl in an attempt to get her DNA, only to find the child not to be Emily. Of course, the hunt continues.

Next, we are introduced to Jack Livingstone who is a flight instructor and owner of Higher Ground. Jack, a bachelor, is raising his 8 year old niece since a tragic accident that took both lives of Nattie’s adoptive parents. He depends on Laura Mast, a shunned Amish woman, to help raise Nattie. Then we have San, Jack’s sister, who bedevils him all the time about finding a wife. He dates a few women, but fails to find one he could fall in love with. Enter Kelly Maines, who is immediately attracted to Jack and especially to Nattie.
