A book review of His Secret Daughter by Melissa Wiesner.
Emma Havern’s day started like most days. She was working on her pottery in her shed when two policemen showed up at her door. They were giving her the news that nobody wanted to hear. Her husband, Noah, was in a coma after he was in a car accident.
However, that wasn’t the worst news. He was driving a woman who died in the accident and there was a small child involved. She was fine, but nobody really knew who she was. They were hoping that Emma knew.
What conclusion would you come to? Your husband had been traveling a lot more for work, to the point that you were separated. The little girl looked so much like her husband and own daughter that her mind went wild.
All Emma wanted was Noah to wake up and tell her that it was all a big misunderstanding! But in the meantime, who would take care of the little girl? Her mother named Noah as a guardian, so Emma seemed the logical choice, but was she?
What would you do? Emma realizes that she never really knew her husband, and she uses this time to figure out what exactly he was hiding from her.
I LOVED this book. I became so invested in Emma’s life as she tried to continue to raise her daughter, while learning as much as she could about her husband and the little girl who just might be his daughter.
I was completely blown away at the ending. You won’t believe what happened to Emma, Noah, Maya, and the little girl. I can’t wait to grab her next book when it is on sale. I may not even wait that long.
