Book Description

1 Nov 2001
Molly Meredith is happy with her lot in life. She has a thoughtful, considerate husband in Joe, a house spectacularly decorated with her creative curtain making skills, and a gorgeous baby son, Eddie, who is considered cute and adorable by absolutely everyone he meets. Everyone, that is, except his father. For Joe has never come to terms with the fact that he has been adopted, and the arrival of his son just serves to rekindle painful memories. His reaction is to shut him out, and pretend that Eddie doesn't exist. Molly is understandably upset but is equally determined to do something about it. The key to their happiness, she decides, is the woman who gave him away all those years ago. When Molly finally tracks her down, she is shocked to discover who Joe's mother really is. Stella Milton is the intellectual sexpot of the British stage, an actress whose picture has adorned many an adolescent boy's bedroom. Joe is overjoyed at finally being acquainted, and for a while it seems that Molly's plan has worked. But then Joe starts spending more and more time with his mother, and less and less with his wife and son . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 23 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this in 2 sittings, I thought it was great. The characters were all rounded and interesting. There was a lot of foreshadowing, so I thought something terrible was going to happen, but things ended well and even the least sympathetic characters grew and learned more about themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely, easy read 6 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is my first Maeve Haran book, but I'll definitely by back for more. I read this lovely story in two sittings - it was impossible to put down. The characters were all believable and even the dreaded birth mother became likeable in the end!

4.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite author! 21 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I'm halfway through reading this, and can't put it down, the first book since my year-old daughter was born to do this to me. It is fantastic. Molly has a small baby and a gorgeous husband, who is adopted. He's always known this but since his son was born he's decided to trace his mother. She turns out to be impossibly glamorous and whisks him off to be her new fashion accessory. It's very funny but not at the expense of a blooming good story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shallow 7 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've enjoyed other of Maeve Haran's books but I was really disappointed by this one. Many of the characters were one-dimensional and the plot was often predictable. Far too little was made of the feelings of the adopted son himself, with all the focus on Molly,his wife, (not at all a sympathetic character) and his birth-mother. It just didn't feel real to me.
