Kelly Sheldon arrives home to find her Mum seriously ill. Roz has always shied away from doctors and authority but now she needs help, diagnosed with Diabetes, she's damaged her kidneys. The vegetarian diet they eat will help her recovery and Roz still insists on her herbal remedies, but Kelly goes behind her back to have tests to see if she can donate a kidney for a Mother's survival.
Gillain walks on eggshells around her angry daughter never knowing the right way to deal with her and always feeling guilty about never finding the right time to tell her she is adopted. That is until the evil Joan blabs in yet another bought of hatred towards her family. Grasping for details Vicky digs up news reports from twenty-two years ago which fuel her anger at the world.
As the story unfolds we read of women who were victims of strong emotions surrounding their babies and life experiences which shaped their futures. There's no right or wrong definition of a mother's love in the constant flux of life but it still exists.
A very good tale which kept me enthralled until the end.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author via Honno Press
When I was approached by Honno Publishers to become a reviewer for them in books that I thought I would enjoy reading, I didn't know what to expect, but it was surely an honor.
This book came my way and I was eager to start it.
Its all in the title.
For us that are Moms, we know we would give our life for our child/children. We would protect them to death.
Its said that there is nothing stronger than a Mothers Love for her offspring. I recognize that to be true in myself even though mine are grown now.
We meet three women in this book, each one a Mom.
Heather, she finds herself pregnant again and is none too happy although her husband seems to be fine.
Gillian unable to have children of her own and failed IVFS decides to dig deeper into adoption.
Lindy, a very young Mom who has a brute for a boyfriend. doesn't believe the baby is his, wants her rid of it. She is too far gone to have a termination so he suggests telling no one and just 'dumping it' when its born. He's a crook! Not long out of prison.
Nothing goes as planned.
We later see how one of them is persecuted by neighbors for having 'killed' her child. Nothing was ever proven.
We get Vicky, one of the now grown children being told she was adopted.
One of the Moms gets terribly ill and the daughter wants to find someone to make her better, for that, she needs to uncover some dark secrets.
I absolutely devoured this book. I started it one evening and finished it the very next day. It played on my mind when I was unable to finish reading it and needed sleep! but I picked it up the very next day as I couldn't rest until I read the ending.
It was a bit slow at the start, more me than the author, I had to piece all the Moms together and fix in my brain who was who and what was what. Once i did this, it moved along fantastically well.
I her other book too, so will be reading that soon. Can't wait!
Thanks to Honno Publishers for my copy.
Two girls find out their mother isn't their real mother. Kelly's mother Roz has a genetic form of diabetes. She needs a new kidney, but Kelly isn't a match. She wants to find the girl who is to see if she has a kidney for Roz. What happened 22 years earlier with the babies on the maternity ward in the hospital, has someone switched them? Vicky finds out that her mother isn't her real mother. Her childhood hasn't been very nice, so she's trying to find the woman who should have raised her. She thinks she knows where to find her, but is this person actually her mother? What happened with both of these girls?
Motherlove is a fantastic fast paced book about three mothers and two girls. Somehow the stories are connected, but how? I couldn't stop reading and couldn't wait to find out what happened. This is such a thrilling read. The story is unusual and really good. Everything clicks at a certain point and behind the gripping part of the story there are also beautiful stories about young women who need to find their way in life. Something went horribly wrong somewhere and that had grave consequences. Eventually the reader will get the missing pieces of the puzzle, I loved how the writer makes that happen. If you like a moving psychological story that will keep you on the edge of your seat you will love this book.
