A gripping story that I couldn’t put down!
This was an incredible story from one of my favorite authors. I was absolutely hooked from the very beginning. It turned out to be a suspense filled drama that was quite compelling.
Jessica is a mother of two boys, the youngest, Gabriel is adopted. She is estranged from her husband Evan and her life is complicated. She gets some devastating news and her life takes another abrupt turn.
I love this author’s writing style and I was pulled into the story and carried away to Jessica’a world. At times, I wanted to hold her hand and sob with her (I may have been holding my breath at times).
I was so curious about where the plot was going and I was totally invested in the characters. Many of the chapters were filled with tension that kept me reading because no way could I stop until I found out what happened! Jessica becomes an amateur sleuth and starts to put some clues together. All the dots are connected in the stunning end.
There is a mystery, an emotional adoption story, and a multi-layered plot. The many detours had me racing to get to the last page!

Jessica Chamberlain, newly separated and living with her two sons in a small Iowa town, can’t believe that a tragedy in another state could have anything to do with her. But when her phone rings one quiet morning, her world is shattered.

Soon she is caught in a web of lies and half-truths—and she’s horrified to learn that everything leads back to her seven-year-old adopted son, Gabriel.

A harrowing story of tenacious love and heartbreaking betrayal, You Were Always Mine is about the wars we wage to keep the ones we love close, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Jodi Picoult.
