What do you do when your good intentions are not seen as such in the eyes of the legal system?

From the beautiful countryside of Te Puna in New Zealand to the inclement weather of the United Kingdom, child abuse to child kidnapping, this story takes us on a compelling journey in which we get to see first hand the guilt suffered by one woman and the pain and abject fear suffered by a young child who has no control over her own destiny.

Charlotte Nicholls, still trying to come to grips with her own family history after reuniting with her biological mother, has now settled in New Zealand in an attempt to build a positive family life for herself and Chloe. Constantly fearful that her unlawful actions will be discovered, she does everything in her power to protect Chloe, but when one perfectly innocent friendship stirs up a hornets’ nest, the unthinkable happens and both Charlotte and Chloe are swept up into a seemingly awful nightmare – one where Charlotte’s greatest fear is realised and the well-being of Chloe’s mental health is at risk with her trying to understand why her mother has allowed this to happen.

With a court-room drama looming before her and the prospect of true love in the offing, will Charlotte be able to convince a jury that whilst her actions were unlawful, they were always in the best interests of the child?

While this is the sequel to No Child of Mine: A Novel and not having read anything by this author before, besides adding a whole lot of graphic content and a bit more depth to the reasons behind them fleeing England, Susan Lewis has done a great job of fleshing her characters out that in no way did I feel I had missed anything from the first novel.

IF you havent read no child of mine STOP !! you have missed the best part of this story - or at least the reason they are in new zealand - to be honest i dont think you will appreciate this book unless you have read the other so STOP... not only is this the best sequel I have read in a long long time, it had me on the edge of my chair wondering if they would be kept together or torn apart... I loved these two books

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly loved this book!! 18 May 2014

While "Din't Let Me Go" is the sequel to "No Child of Mine," it is also a novel which could be read as a stand alone. (Although both books are absolutely wonderful and truly worth the read....)

I read this one with great care in order to take in a the details and minutiae of the many aspects of this book. And it was still totally catching and attention holding from the first page!! Heartbreaking, heartwarming, full of family dynamics, love, hope, despair, friendship, and legalize, "Don't Let Me Go," is easily the best book I have read in 2014.

The characters and relationships, personal and familial and other dynamics, are so well developed that you truly are able to relate to each and every one of them and the situations in which they are a part of.

The addition and stronger role of Anthony in this novel adds such an additional dynamic that is wonderful in all the roles he plays. Being able to see the effect of Chloe and Charlotte when they are separated and how they both struggle during the separation is so well written and contrasted so well against the dynamic of their homecoming and dynamic when they are together. The role of Tracy throughout the novel also add a great deal to the role of the child protective social worker, as well as how others relate to Chloe and truly adds to the character of Chloe as well as her effect on others.

I have tried to summarize this book as best as possible, but am not finding the best words to relate how wonderful and moving it is and how one truly will miss out by passing up the chance to read this novel. So if you read nothing else this year, "Don't Let Me Go," is the book to read.

As an aside to the author, while most areas were concluded with this novel, it would be great to have a novella that picks up in 5 yrs time and catches us up on their life in New Zealand, the new addition to the family as well as the new house an businesses, etc and how Charlotte's relationship with her mother works out, how Chloe is doing i. Her new school now that she is older, and with a new sibling, etc.

"Don't Let Me Go" is the sequel to " No Child Of Mine", the first book I read written by Miss Lewis. I was utterly charmed and fascinated by her writing style. I felt so close to the main characters and laughed and cried as the story unfolded. They both contain such soul wrenching sadness and great joy. The subject matter is a forbidden one and she tells it with such empathy. I can't say enough about her writing style. I am a forever fan of Susan Lewis and look forward to ordering more of her books.

It was a wonderful story, sometimes hurting my heart because of the reality of child abuse so rampant in our world. I pray that all children are given the opportunity and compassion displayed in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartfelt sequel to "No Child of Mine" 3 May 2014
By SuziQ - Published on

Having read the sad story of Ottilie Wade in "No Child of Mine", with tears and laughter, I was surprised to find the continuing story of Alex Lake, now known by her original name of Charlotte Nicholls, and Ottilie, now known as Chloe in "Don't Let ?Me Go". This book made me cry made me laugh and made me proud of a Justice system that doesn't always hear or see the requirements of a child, due mainly to the number of children in the same situation.

A book well worth reading if you can bear to hear the horrors of pedophilia in young children.
