A Mother's Goodbye by Kate Hewitt
My rating: 5 Stars
When Heather discovers she is pregnant, she knows that she cannot keep the baby. Her husband has been out of work for years due to a back injury, they already have three girls, and their apartment is too small. Add to that their financial worries, and it becomes clear why they make the decision to give the baby up for adoption – to give it a better future than they feel they can offer. The decision doesn’t come easy. As a matter of fact, it is an agonizing one.
Grace can’t believe that Heather has chosen her to mother her child. There is no doubt of the love Grace felt from the very start. She has the circumstances to make a wonderful life for the child and will do anything to prove that to Heather.
A Mother's Goodbye is a riveting story. It is indeed very touching. I thought the story was already pulling at my heartstrings, but then there was a twist, one so tragic, that I read much of the story with a lump in my throat.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review.
