Banking heiress Trish and her husband, James, seem to have it all, from a lavish lifestyle to a historic mansion in the nation’s capital. The only thing that’s missing to make their family complete is a baby, so when Trish holds Anne Elise in her arms for the first time, it’s no surprise that she falls deeply in love. There’s just one problem: Trish isn’t the mother. The baby belongs to Laurel, James’s young mistress. And more than that, James and Laurel want to start a new life together - despite an ironclad prenup standing in their way.

All she ever wanted was a baby. You kind of feel bad for Trish. James was the crowd in this story and was happy to see what came to him. And finally Laura.... the dumb mistress who believes everything that is told to her. I wish things would have turned different for Trish, who I believe was the victim in this story.

  • This book is riveting in that you can't stop listening. While it is listed under Fiction, the story is true.

This book starts slow and for the first few chapter you wonder when its going to pick up. Another thing that was hard to follow was the narrators. The slow pace of their voices was irritating ! I love Nicolas Sparks but this one is not a favorite.

I enjoyed hearing his point of view. It was refreshing to understand what made him the way he was and how his love for Ana evolved.
