Publisher's Summary

Zoe and Ollie Morley tried for years to have a baby and couldn't. They turned to adoption and their dreams came true when they were approved to adopt a little girl from birth. They named her Evie. In the days following Evie's birth the new parents watch anxiously as their precious daughter struggles - she is battling the severe effects of the drugs her birth mother was addicted to.

Seven years later, the family has moved to Zoe's native Yorkshire and grown in number: a wonderful surprise in the form of baby Ben, conceived naturally against the odds. Ollie is earning good money allowing Zoe to pursue her career as an artist. As a working mum it's not easy, but Zoe has an exhibition coming up and her reputation is growing. Life is good.

But then Evie begins to receive letters and gifts. The sender claims to be her birth father. He has been looking for his daughter. And now he is coming to take her back....

No need for police!

Great plot, great narrator, but ruined, for me, by the far fetched notion that the police are incompetent; even failing to properly investigate one of the tragic events bestowed on this family, and the parents having to step in and save the day on the second major event.
Shame. This book had so much potential. It almost felt like the author didn't know what to do with the parents during the police investigations, so she had to put them front and centre, and leading the investigation themselves.

Frustrating

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration very nearly stopped me from continuing in to listen. The story drew me in but only because I couldn't understand how blindingly obvious questions had not been asked by the police!

Would you be willing to try another book from Sanjida Kay? Why or why not?

Maybe if a different narrator is used.

Did Helen Johns do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

It was bearable

Did The Stolen Child inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

Sadly frustration overtook any enjoyment.
