It’s 1970 and the Vietnam War is raging. Carly is expecting a child and has suffered through the loss of her beloved husband in the war. She can’t wait to have this child that was conceived in so much love until she finds out that the child has a heart problem. This medical issue will not be able to be treated by doctors and Carly is told that there is no hope. Amid the devastation that Carly feels, her brother-in-law gives her an option that she never could imagine. At this point, I really don’t want to give away any more of the plot. I first began to read the book thinking that it was going to be a story of the 1970’s and the Vietnam War. I was blown away by the rest of the story! Diane Chamberlain is such a gifted writer who takes the reader anywhere or to any time that she writes about. As a mother, I was so empathetic toward Carly…..someone who would do ANYTHING to save her child. But, the real question is “How far would you go?” I highly recommend this amazing book!
The Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain will be published October 2, 2018 by St. Martin’s Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
