Child of Mine by David and Beverly Lewis Book Review



 

Flight instructor Jack Livingston has been raising his eight-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. When he travels, Natalie is tenderly cared for by her Amish nanny, Laura Mast, who loves the little girl as her own.

Eight excruciating years ago, Kelly Maines's baby was kidnapped. Determined to find her child, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. And now, with the clock ticking, one last clue from a private investigator ignites a tiny flame of hope: Just a few miles away lives a young girl who matches the profile.

Can this be, at long last, Kelly's beloved daughter?

My Thoughts:

Beverly Lewis has been adding some very unconventional Amish fictional books lately. Child of Mine is no exception to the change is doing with her books lately. She is writing this book with her husband David Lewis.

At first the book started out slowly and it was hard for me to read and get into the plot and characters during the first few chapters. Then the further I read the harder time I had to the book down. It then became a fast paced read that talks about the black market of baby selling, missing children, and adoptions. For the most part all of Beverly Lewis books have been pretty predictable.

Kelly was a character that I slowly began to like the more I found out about her character. Jack was just a likable man all around. Natalie at first I thought was a bit of a spoiled brat but, she grew on me. Then we have Laura who I wanted to know more about than what the story told you.

I’m not going to give away any spoilers but this is a worthwhile story that will pull at your heart strings and break your heart at the same time.

Thank you for another wonderful story. I look forward to the next book in this series.
