Kerry is one of my favourite authors and I always look forward to reading her work, I downloaded The Secret Child to then be able to save it for Christmas, as you can see that didn't quite go to plan.
Kerry's strength is in her characters and how realistic they become within the pages of her books, with this heartfelt story of Susie, who gives her child up for adoption. It is set back in the late 1960's moving us forward through the events and life.
I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like to give up a child not because you wanted to for various reasons, but because your family was embarrassed by you. It wasn't the done thing.
How Susie's decisions affect her future years like a domino effect, but not only hers - her family and how she makes friendships.
Kerry describes the decades with subtle reminders of music, fashion, and family differences. How times really have changed from generation to generation, with some things staying the same.
A family saga that will keep you turning the pages, but not wanting it to end. With storylines that you will take to your heart, you will question the personalities and decisions made. Making this an interesting thought provoking read.
