Verity seems to have it all. A beautiful home, two grown-up sons and a husband who has always been her rock.

But one day, the doorbell rings. And it changes Verity’s life forever.

Saskia has nowhere else to go. Before she died, her mother left her with her father’s name and nothing else. The only way for Saskia to take care of herself – and her unborn baby – is to find the father she never knew. And the family that didn’t know she existed.

This family secret means the end of everything they’ve ever known. But could it also be the chance for a new beginning?

A Light, Gentle Read!      stars 4


This is a gentle book about family; easy to read and fairly enjoyable.

Verity finds herself rattling around in her home since her husband’s promotion means spending time abroad sorting out business problems and their two sons are now away at university. Then a young woman comes to her door and reveals a shocking secret – will things ever be the same again?

This novel flows easily and I got through it in no time at all. There is a good mix of characters and a couple of story lines which mix together well. It’s a perfectly lovely read, simple to follow and with plenty going on. Everything came together by the end, leaving no loose ends and a future for each of them. A light read which will appeal to many, and I’m happy to give it four stars.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley, and to Vicky Joss for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
