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.

A different book from Beverly Lewis

I love Beverly Lewis books! However, this one took me a while to actually get into, but I finally started to make sense of things and was totally drawn in. Not a typical Lewis book, but once all the pieces of the story came together it was a sweet ending with a twist I did not see coming.

Didn't love, but liked a lot!!

I was looking for something with a bit more depth. I loved the faith based plot. I think that developing more on that would be great! The ending did have a nice twist that was predictable... but, not right away.

a very convaluted story

I did not enjoy this book very much. there were no pauses to let your mind catch up to all the scenarios going on. it sort of had a good ending...I guess...but it seemed to me a mixed up mess...I wish I had not bought it.
