Summary

On the surface, Luke and his girlfriend, Hannah, seem to have a perfect life. He's an A&R man, she's an arts correspondent and they are devoted to their newborn son, Samuel. But beneath the gloss Luke has always felt like an outsider. When he finds his birth mother, Alice, the instant connection with her is a little like falling in love.

So when Hannah goes back to work, Luke asks Alice to look after their son. But Alice - deranged with grief when her baby was taken from her 27 years ago - starts to fall in love with Samuel and starts to pretend their child is hers....

Don’t bother

This book just dragged. I ended up returning it half way through, after 4 hours of everybody talking about their feelings I decided it was enough. I try really hard to finish books so take this as an honest review. It’s just another book that has a good synopsis but no substance.
