The author takes a very interesting and different concept, the right of a mother to obtain visitation after walking out on them and her husband over a decade previously.
The two children do not know their biological mother nor have seen her in over a decade. They have settled in well with their father and soon to be two half-sister's and a woman who has been more of a mother to them than anyone else. So when they receive a court notice that their biological mother wants visitation, it throws their lives, and that of their father and soon to be members of the family into flux and turmoil.
While it is a battle, the mother gets a few visitation visits, initially. There is drama, misunderstandings, hard truths, relationship building, and a new extended family that creates even more issues for the two girls and their biological mother.
While some believe the girls are more of a possession and belong to them (grandfather), others feel that they have the right to be a part of their lives without taking other issues into consideration initially (biological mother), and others are possessive of them on a loving way as a part of their family (father and soon to be step-mother).
I enjoyed the premise of the novel and the point the author was making. I loved the characters, even those you just dislike from ones initial introduction. While I understood its inclusion, I did feel the final issue with the grandfather was a little extreme, but also made a point.
I felt the author portrayed the relationship building of the bio mom with the two girls relatively realistically. He hit many aspects of the confusion, mistakes, awkwardness, feelings, and understandings in a very honest and truthful manner.Read more ›
I was fascinated by the blurb and the cover and I was eager to see how the tale would develop. The author touched on the sensitive issues of mental illness and physical abuse. He demonstrated the devastating impact that mental illness can have on the patient and their family if not diagnosed and properly treated. If we fail to see the signs, then the impact can be devastating. The author demonstrated this when Jennie’s husband failed to recognize that her change in behaviour was due to some underlying mental issues.
Initially, I detested Jennie. For the life of me, I could not understand how a mother could abandon her children. Jennie did this and now twelve years later she wanted to reconnect with them. To me she came off as being selfish, however, as the story progressed, I found myself wishing that she would get that second chance she so desired. It was evident that Jennie has come a long way since that fateful day, twelve years ago. She is a prime example that a person, with the proper support, can change if they desire to do so and for me persons like these deserve a second chance. She has learnt that things are not so black and white. She came to the realization that she could not pick up from where she left off.Read more ›
Jennie Bateman left her family. Twelve years later, she goes to court to for visitation rights with her two daughters. This is a story of that journey.
My wife and I have fostered and adopted many children. And as a CASA representative, (Court Appointed Special Advocate for children) I’ve seen all the sides of struggle for children.
Jennie suffered from bi-polar disorder. This is very common among parents who have their children removed from their home. When on meds, these parents can function normally.
As I’ve seen, and as the case of Jennie, she changed. Her life is much better and has a strong desire to have her daughters back in her life. Who could blame her?
I’m happy David wrote a book like this. Too many times in the world of children, people want to judge the parents harshly. This story went deep into Jennie’s struggle. The reader took a journey of discovery.
The heartaches of failure to the triumph of success. This book had it all. I’ll not soon forget about Jennie and her girls. Heartwarming, suspenseful and thrilling story.
