A Mother’s Goodbye by Kate Hewitt
‘My arms ache with the need to reach and hold my precious child, and then to never let go. But I can’t. I know I can’t.’
Heather is devastated. There’s no way she can keep her baby. She can barely pay the bills as it is. But when she meets Grace, a wealthy, single career woman, who wants a baby more than anything, Heather believes she has found the perfect adoptive mother.
As Grace and Heather’s lives become entwined, they are tested to breaking point, though neither can deny the other’s love for the child. But just when they think they are learning how to live with each other, they receive devastating news that turns their fragile world upside down.
Will either mother know what is the right thing to do for the child they both love?
An absolutely gripping, emotional drama with a tear-jerking twist. If you love Jodi Picoult, Kelly Rimmer or Diane Chamberlain, this will warm your heart, make you cry, and stay with you forever.

Wow! This book pulled at my heartstrings from first page to last… A touching book about mothers love…. two mothers loving the same child…. One gave birth to him… and the other gives life to him…. both wanting the best for him….
Heather’s husband has lost his job, they have three young kids that they cannot afford to buy new shoes for, when Heather finds herself pregnant with baby number four….Grace has a successful professional life, but feels like something is missing from her personal life…. I am sure you can see where this is going, Heather chooses to have Grace adopt her baby…. as a mother I can only imagine how heartwrenching that would be, but so unselfish of Heather to want nothing but the best for her baby…. The adoption is open and Heather and family see the baby Isaac once a month…. when tragedy strikes it brings these two women together in quite a remarkable way….
Told from the points of view of both Heather and Grace…. I thought this was extremely affective, we really got a glimpse into the thoughts and feelings of both mothers…. I really found both these characters real and relatable, with all the real struggles of a mother…. I loved how their relationship strengthened and grew through tragedy and love… The ending to this was sad, sweet, and satisfying…
Absolutely recommend to those who enjoy a book about tough decisions and mothers love💕
