Stolen Child by Laura Elliot

Stolen Child by Laura Elliot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an excellent story, although predictable.

This is a story of 2 different families, one of them where someone is unable to conceive.

Yes its about a stolen child which keeps you reading, the bit that kept me interested was the 'what if' aspect of it.

I had read this 2 years ago, the publishers have re-issued this book with a new cover.

It gives you insight to the mind of a tragic emotional person. Giving both sides to the equation rightly or wrongly.

I didn't feel it was the strongest book that Laura Elliot had written, but did keep me reading until the end.

I was given the 2nd edition of this book by HarperCollins UK, Avon as an exclusive which I very much appreciate.

When Carla Kelly and Robert Gardner marry, they seem destined for happiness. But tragedy strikes when their two-day-old baby, Isobel, is stolen. Distraught and bewildered, they must cope with the media frenzy that follows. As hope of finding her fades, their marriage disintegrates under the strain and they divorce. Robert moves to Australia and Carla, who had been a successful model, becomes reclusive and retreats into anonymity in order to escape the glare of publicity.

Meanwhile, many miles away in a small town, Joy Dowling, miracle baby, is the adored only child of Susanne and David. Her mother is over protective and attempts to rear Joy in isolation, but as a wilful and headstrong child, Joy will not be held back and comes into conflict with her mother. Susanne Dowling has her reasons for wanting to keep Joy out of sight but some things can't stay hidden forever.

As the years pass, hopes of finding Isobel fade, but Carla Kelly never gives up her search. Her love for her Stolen Child burns fiercely and soon, secrets long kept will be brought into the light.

Stolen Child is a love story about two families who are torn apart by deception and the consequences of a reckless act that shaped their futures
