BLOG TOUR - His Secret Daughter


Not Noah. Not my husband. But there he is, unconscious in the hospital bed. Our daughter sobs into my shoulder. We love him so much. What if he never wakes up? And who is the little girl beside him, gazing up at us with big, tea-filled brown eyes? Eyes that look just like my husband’s…

Our family of three is perfect. Just me, Noah and our teenage daughter Maya. The day the police knock at our door, telling us about the car accident, is the worst day of my life. My heart shatters, but what they say next almost makes it stop beating: Noah was in the car with another woman who died at the scene. Her two-year-old girl, 
Luna, miraculously survived.

With Noah fighting for his life, I’m desperate for the truth: and when I search his desk, I find checks made out to Luna’s mother. 
Did my loving, loyal husband have a secret family all along?

Despite my own terrible pain, at the hospital I can’t help but comfort this poor child as she cries for her mommy. With nowhere else for Luna to go, I find myself opening our home. Seeing Maya hold Luna’s hand and giggle as they chase butterflies in the garden, it’s almost like my daughter has a sister…

I have an impossible choice. Do I tell Maya the truth about her father? If Noah wakes up, will even more secrets come out about who he really is? And can I forgive him enough to give this sweet, innocent girl a home… 
or will my husband’s betrayal tear us all apart?

Fans of Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper, Kate Hewitt and Diane Chamberlain will adore this absolutely unputdownable read about how the people we love most can hide the darkest secrets.

Although Emma is relieved to hear that her husband Noah has survived a devastating car accident, she is devastated to learn that he is in a coma. Furthermore, there was someone else in the car who died at the scene, and there was another survivor besides Noah, a toddler name Luna. Quite naturally, Emma begins to wonder what was going on with her husband Noah. His chances do not look good, and although very concerned for his well-being, Emma wonders who that person was who died in the accident and what Noah’s connection to Luna could be.

Not one to let things sort themselves out, Emma starts digging for answers. This means going through Noah’s past and possessions to try to find out what has been going on with him. It seems for certain that Noah has been keeping secrets and these secrets have a very far reach.

Noah and Emma had an idyllic first meeting and very wonderful relationship that started to fracture at some point. While Noah is unresponsive to stimulus, Emma never stops visiting and also has their daughter Maya visit as well, hoping against hope that Noah will soon wake up. Of course, Emma wants the best for Noah, but she also wants answers.

Emma soon realizes that she must make a very difficult decision, and as hard as that decision will be, she knows it is in the best interest of the little girl Luna. Melissa Wiesner has written a compelling read from start to finish, one that pulls you into the lives of these characters with the “what if” question playing over and over. For a compelling family drama that will keep you turning pages late into the night, look no further than His Secret Daughter.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
