A Mother’s Goodbye by Kate Hewitt

Heather can’t quite believe this is happening, it’s the last thing they need, another baby. Let alone afford. They can barley afford the three girls they have, and with Kevin will being out of work because of his back – there is no way they can stretch things for a fourth child. It is impossible, they are barley hanging on as it is. She feels there is only one choice that this leaves her, and Kevin seems to not care.

Grace is about to make partner at her firm and should be ecstatic as she has worked so hard for this, but she is still struggling with having lost her father. The only family she had left. The one who was there for her in everything she did in life, as her mother died when she was young. Since his death, it has made her reevaluate her life. Her legacy… as there will be no one after her. Her biological clock is ticking and she doesn’t have much time left to find a mate, get married and then get pregnant. But there are options.

Heather makes one of the hardest decisions in her life, but she knows it’s the right one and she thinks she has found the perfect person for her child. Grace is surprised she is picked to become a mother, as she will be a single parent. But this is what she wants, she wants to share what her and her father had with someone she can love and watch grow. At the last minute Heather changes the stipulation of the adoption and the two are now intertwined for what may seem this baby’s whole life.

Can the two work together to raise this child and not make things complicated or will the child be caught in the middle with lawyers, courts and being shuffled around? Did Heather make the right decision after all, what about Grace? Was this what she thought she would be getting into?

This was a really good novel on the struggles that mothers, and women have. Whether it is raising a child, making a hard decision about adoption or being that parent that adopts and now has to make different choices. This novel really dives into the struggles women face in situations. Thank you to Forever Publishing for the free novel.
