about

Perfect for fans of Joanna Trollope and Anita Shreve, Amanda Brookfield's The Love Child is a profoundly moving story about the redeeming power of love.

When Janine and Dougie fell in love they thought it would be for ever. Fifteen years later their relationship is well and truly over, their daughter Stevie their one remaining connection.

Stevie is on the cusp of adulthood. At sixteen, she's not quite a child, but not quite grown up: a dangerous age. But it's only during a birthday celebration in Spain, when she gets too close to one of Dougie's best friends, that her parents realize just how dangerous.

With friendships shattered and trusts betrayed, Janine and Dougie - brought together in Stevie's moment of crisis - know they must see beyond the past if they're to secure their daughter's future. But even with such a lot at stake, can a relationship with so many complications ever have a future.

Touching and heartfelt, The Love Child is a story about discovering what matters most in your life, and having the courage to reach for it - not just once, but again and again.

Praise for Amanda Brookfield:

'Perceptive. Poignant. Unputdownable. I loved it.' Patricia Scanlan

'Few explore the messy tangles of close human relationships with quite such warm perceptiveness' Daily Mirror

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The love child I felt this book dragged on and the story I was hopping to read never really started until halfway through.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The love child I read the book, it was a bit difficult to follow, I'm not sure if it was the writing that was difficult to follow or the banal story line, however I did get though it, and can't really recommend it or not to others to read.
