Product description

Product Description

When a new feature on Pete Newbury’s popular TV programme shows his adult image digitally transformed to that of a young child, Beth is shocked to realize that he’s her ‘baby’ brother, who vanished without trace thirty-eight years ago. But bringing their family back together after so much heartache isn’t going to be easy, and she may lose the man she loves in the process.
A stolen child, a family torn apart, love in all its guises, and anguish, too . . . this story plumbs the deepest of human emotions and takes you on a roller-coaster ride that will keep you turning the pages to the very end. Anna Jacobs is famous for her stories of love, families and relationships, but this time she’s outdone herself.
Beth’s brother vanished at the age of three and her mother has grieved ever since. Her daughter ran away at the age of fifteen, and she hasn’t heard from her since. Now she guards her heart very carefully and concentrates on her work.
Edward Newbury is a quiet, capable man, but hides a secret grief, and he isn’t going to spend his life looking after his famous cousin Pete. Somehow he has to find a new meaning, a new direction for himself.
Pete Newbury’s marriage breaks up just as his TV talk show is becoming really popular. To make matters worse, an old secret is revealed through his new segment that shocks him to the core. Has his whole life been a deception? In his anguish, he lashes out at everyone.

REVIEW by the prestigious Booklist:
‘Jacobs once again gives her readers an engrossing story as her resilient heroine discovers the true meaning of family.’ –Booklist USA, February 15, 2010
