This book was an emotional roller coaster A bit upsetting and sad, but truly beautiful story about family, love and new beginnings.And I am so happy that my reading challenge is completed with this amazing book. As a mother, The Secret Daughter spoke to me directly.We meet Sabina At 37 years of age, she falls pregnant, only to find out she was adopted.What a shock that would be to anyone.It s also a shock to Sabina as she already loves her unborn child than she would have imagined possible.How could anyone abandon their child Why was she put up for adoption Sabina struggles with these questions and then sets out to find her biological mother.At this point in The Secret Daughter, I was almost frightened for Sabina.Sure, she has a right to know, but that knowledge could easily be a horrible tale A very beautiful and sensitive story based on truly heartbreaking true events in Australia in the early 70 s concerning forced adoptions I loved reading about the main character Bean s emotions and feeli Overall I thought it was a very interesting subject However, I thought there was a lot of lazy writing when it came to the search and certain characters It was too easy and fairly irritating how all the loose ends so easily came together I did like how it made me swing i Wow what a corker Weepy and possibly predictable in a way, nevertheless this does not detract from a simple, heartwrenching story that is well told Good, clear writing that comes across as true rather than fiction based on real situation Had me in tears on the tube, choking back the Sabina is 38 years old and pregnant with her first baby when her parents hit her with the bombshell that she is adopted in this extremely emotional and melodramatic story which weaves its way between 1973 and 2012 The story is told from three perspectives, Sabina herself, her birth mother Lilly and her adopted mother Megan, so we get all three angles of this very sad story We follow Lilly throughout her pregnancy and birth, Sabina in the present and throughout the story and particularly during the second half of the book we find out just what the connection between Lilly and Megan was, and how she came to adopt Sabina.It isn t hard to imagine Sabina s reaction to the news one of anger and confusion, especially as her parents waited so long to break the news to her Why wasn t she told sooner And, why are her parents still not telling her the truth and behaving so cagey about matters It soon becomes clear that if she is going to find out anything at all about her birth parents, she is going to have to do it without their help.The first half of the book is extremely emotional as we watch Sabina trying to come to terms with the news and her feelings towards her parents However, the second half of the book is upbeat and much positive all round and I was quite relieved about this as I felt I was almost wallowing in angst I was eager to read this book as I have heard a lot about it so, when I was granted a copy from Bookouture via Net Galley in exchange for my honest review, of course, I jumped right in.Kelly Rimmer the author doesn t mess about, she tells it like it is, and draws you without you noticing it I sat and finished this book today, I had only started it late last night, but I just had to pick it up and carry on I did text my book buddy to say you gotta read this , she looked, and she has it to read on her list I am so glad of that because I just know she will love it.What must it be like to be in your 30 s Married Expecting a child of your own and then being told by your parents that you had been adopted This is what happened to Sabina.Can you imagine the impact Ted her husband is stood right beside her, he has her back, he has her emotions, he is a great help to her, solid and factual But Sabina cannot come to terms with this, OF COURSE NOT, its a SHOCK to the must amazing degree Her life as she knew it was now in pieces.Its not easy to think well, these are still my parents, they brought me up , its the big heap of questions that go around in your head and one of the big ones is Who is my Mother She finds her parents very cagey.Now this is where it got so addictive for me I was solidly glued to my Kindle Just what were the parents hiding Just what
