What Was Mine

What Was Mine - Helen Klein Ross, Julia Whelan, Cassandra Campbell, Amanda Carlin, Rebekkah Ross, Jonathan Todd Ross 4.5 Stars

As the beautiful song goes by Jamie Lawson I "Wasn't Expecting That ".

"Lucy Wakefield is a seemingly ordinary woman who does something extraordinary in a desperate moment. She takes a baby girl from a shopping trolly and raises it as her own"

While reading this story my emotions were all over the place and I kept thinking what a great discussion book this would make for a book club.

I came across this book by accident when I was looking for an audio book and just downloaded it on a whim and I really wasnt expecting the emotional and fascinating read that I got.

This was a book that had my thoughts and emotions all over the place. The plot was imaginative, characters were well developed and pacing was excellent. The story is told from the alternating perspectives of Lucy, Mia, Mia's birth mother and others
intimately involved in the lives of this family.

Really enjoyed this book and the narration was excellent.
