My Only Child – Sam Vickery

Hello again!. I hope you are all staying safe and well during this awful time… I for one appreciate books now more than ever, and I am excited to share my latest review with you all.

Book Description:
There he is, my baby boy. His eyes are closed, his tiny rosebud mouth is pursed in sleep. My eyes well up as I catch a whiff of his newborn skin and I swallow back a wave of emotion. I should feel happy, I should feel grateful, but all I can think about is everything I just lost…

It’s a miracle when Katherine’s baby boy is born healthy. But his twin sister doesn’t survive, and when Katherine is told she can’t have any more children the loss is almost too much for her to bear.

Katherine always saw herself having a big family: she remembers how the loneliness of being an only child used to overwhelm her, and she is desperate to adopt a sibling for her son.

But her husband Davis won’t agree. He worries that Katherine will struggle when the new baby arrives. What if growing their family only adds to the grief she feels over losing her little girl? What if this breaks their marriage apart?

And Katherine is forced to make a choice. Give up the second child she has always dreamed of or risk losing the family she already has?

An unforgettable and heart-wrenching page-turner about fighting for those we love. Readers of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will remember this story forever.

My Thoughts:

After reading the description for this book I was expecting it to be an emotional read, but quite honestly I had no idea of the impact the story would have on me!.

Rich in emotion and with complicated decisions to be made, this story truly fascinated me. The family dynamics were truly extraordinary, and the way they kept swaying back and forth added another compelling layer to this story. Although some of the characters took a bit longer to accept in the story than others, by the end I found them all so endearing. I particularly liked how the author made each character unique, giving them their own individual strengths and weaknesses, and the ways in which these impacted their relationships throughout.

When the secrets were revealed at the end of this wonderful story, it truly made my heart leap with joy. This is a story that will stay with me forever. It is most certainly a story i would recommend to everyone!.
