Review: This Child of Mine by Sinead Moriarty

This Child of Mine by Sinead Moriarty

I don't tend to read that much 'chick lit', pick one up occasionally, and then I'll read a classic or a crime thriller and then back for a quick read novel again. One of my favourite authors of that genre is Sinead Moriarty.

The novel   sails very close to some delicate issues - teenage pregnancy, drunken behaviour, neglect, infertility, infant mortality, abduction and all their repercussions.  The various events of two families combine when Sophie discovers her unusual tendency to see events and emotions in colours is shared by a famous artist, an artist who lost her child in a sailing accident when she was a toddler, yet she is convinced her daughter is alive, not drowned. Could Sophie be her daughter?  Could Sophie's mother be an abductor? Had she been adopted or abducted? Who were Sophie's parents?

I won't give the game away but the search for the truth has many repercussions - for everyone concerned. It's not a gripping read but it is a page turner and perfect if you're looking for a well written, entertaining read in that genre.

You can buy This Child of Mine online from Amazon
