I would say this story was just mediocre. I've been working my way through Diane Chamberlain's books, and this is the first one to disappoint. First, the performance for this book was dreadful. It seemed like she was speaking so fast, and her different voices were like nails on a chalkboard. Second, I'm guessing this was written before Ms. Chamberlain had children, because she has zero clue in this story what it's like to have a one year old. The child always slept, was always happy, and never seemed to prevent her from working on her word processing. Kids at fussy, whiney, they don't always sleep, and they don't always cooperate. This was s very unrealistic portrayal of what it's like to be a single parent of a young child. I'll move on to her next book though.

The "Taken Child" from a different perspective
When I read the papers about children being taken by the non-custodial parent I usually find myself on the custodial parents side.
This story gives the opposite side-that of the parent who has had her child taken from her by the courts.
The dad in this story is painted very typically bad guy..one has to wonder why any woman would be attracted to this lying guy.!
OTOH the mom is nothing but a wonderful woman and of course everyone says what a great mom she is.
Not one of Chamberlains best, I felt this novel could have been written much more interestingly than she was.
