I liked this book. 9 years ago, Ruby thought she did a good thing. She rescued an abandoned baby and raised her as her own. Through a lot of luck she has a stable and content life (which some readers have criticised as unrealistic - but I'm happy to give her that security - as it allows us to focus on more interesting aspects of the relationships between characters). Her outlook changes when she discovers that the baby she thought was unwanted and abandoned has in fact been missed for the past 9 years by the parents she was stolen from. Then follows the turmoil and consequences of her decisions from that point - some of which seem a bit crazy, but then I'm not the maternal type so who am I to judge how someone should behave in those unlikely circumstances? Lark is an amazing child - wise beyond her years but still just a little girl who doesn't deserve the confusion and heartache that has been trust upon her. Ruby is a likable women who has raised a child well and tries to do the right thing by everyone - which is an impossible task. Suspend your belief a little and allow this unlikely scenario to play out, it is an interesting and worthwhile journey.
