About this title

Synopsis:

Sinéad Moriarty's breathtaking eighth novel, This Child of Mine, is the story of two daughters, two mothers and the extraordinary bond of motherly love. It's a unique blend of the storytelling genius of Jodi Picoult and the compassion and humour of Marian Keyes, in a complex and deeply involving story that will have readers arguing about the nature of motherhood and the rights and wrongs of the characters' actions.

Sophie is a happy 18-year-old living in London with Anna, her Irish mother. Anna has devoted her life to Sophie. It may be just the two of them but Anna has more than enough love to give. Sophie has everything she could ever need.

Laura is a not-so-happy artist. She too has a daughter, Mandy. But Laura is haunted by the loss of her first child, Jody. Happy-go-lucky as she is, Mandy lives in Jody's shadow and wonders why her mother can never let go.

Both mothers carry secrets and cannot forget the day their paths crossed. But a chance discovery is about to bring everything into the open and mothers and daughters, love and lies, past and future, will spectacularly collide.

Review:

Gripping ... Sinéad's unique blend of storytelling and humour, mixed with a complex and deeply involving story, will leave you slightly gutted to reach the last page (Stellar)

Touching, warm, funny and emotional. She has the gift of telling a very emotive story with grace and empathy (Woman's Way)

Sinéad has written a breathtaking, rollercoaster ride of a book that will keep readers enthralled until the very last page (mummypages.co.uk)

Had me shocked and surprised all the way along ... a wonderful read ... I absolutely loved every page (Chloe’s Chick Lit Reviews)

As good as it gets in terms of chicklit polish and poise, humour and pain, pace and plot (Sunday Independent)

An enchanting story of love and loss and just how far you would go for the one you love (Handwrittengirl.com)
