I was uncertain at first as to whether or not I was going to like this book from a new (to me) author. However, the further I went into the first chapter, the more I was hooked in a maelstrom of sentiment, such was the power and emotion of the writing. Reader, you could not fail to be moved, and a few tears are inevitable. I ended up loving the book, and I hope that you will too.
Whilst I would question whether or not Maggie ever felt as though she entirely belonged in her adopted family, I immediately empathised with her and found her to be a strong, believable character. I can see that if someone is adopted, they might eventually want to find their ’birth’ Mother so was not surprised when Maggie embarked on such a journey herself. It seemed totally in keeping with Maggie’s character, that she only commenced her search once her adopted Mother had died.
What I was surprised at, was the mine of raw emotion that seemed to be uncovered, and I feared for Maggie. Would finding her birth mother be the panacea to all that was wrong in her life, or would it only dredge up more grief and turmoil for our kind heroine?
You will of course have to read the book for yourself, to find out, enjoying Maggie’s adventures along the way.
