Publisher's Summary

Jack Livingston has been raising his nine-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. While he travels for work, Natalie is lovingly cared for by Laura, an Amish nanny who loves her as her own. Kelly Maines is nearing the end of her rope. Her baby was kidnapped, the apparent victim of a black market adoption ring, and for eight years, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. Now, there's one last lead from a private investigator: Just a few miles away lives a girl who matches the profile. Could this, at long last, be her beloved child? Desperately, Kelly initiates a "chance" meeting with Jack Livingston. It goes really well. So well, in fact, that Jack asks her out. One date leads to another, and before she can come clean with her original motives, Kelly realizes Jack is falling for her - and she for him. Now how can she tell Jack why she's really here? And having gotten to know Natalie, what if she isn't her long-lost daughter, after all? This was all supposed to be so simple. But nothing in Natalie's world is simple ....

    "Best Book Beverly Lewis has written"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Child of Mine to be better than the print version?

    Not only is this the best book Beverly Lewis has ever written, but it is a must LISTEN to. Christina Moore is one of my favorite narrators and she outdoes herself with this book. The voices are excellent and the inflections are perfect I find myself chuckling a lot at Natalie's big personality. This book must be listened to rather than read to fully appreciate how well written it is. This is a book that needs to be made into a movie. And I love that it is 13+ hours long. More to love. I recommend you buy it right now!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor associated with Natalie's big personality.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is the best.

    Story
    "Excellent book and narration!"
    If you could sum up Child of Mine in three words, what would they be?

    Heartwarming and Engaging!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Child of Mine?

    Finding Natalie's mother - the story does not turn out as one might expect!


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her character voices are excellent. She creates such great images in my head while I listen!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Jack's re-encounter with Kelly.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best books I have listened to in a very long time.

    "Not the best from Beverly Lewis"

    I had stopped reading Beverly Lewis as it seemed most of the stories were basically the same with just a different name to the characters. This one is based mostly in the "Englisher" world but there are Amish traits that weigh into the story.The guts of this story takes place in the last half of the second download. I really did not care for this narrator - she does not do male voices well at all - almost to the point of stopping the listen. The ending was okay and good for the characters. Did this keep me enraptured and on the edge of my seat waiting for the next chapter? No.

    So me this was "just okay".
