A book review of The Mother's Secret by Kate Hewitt.
Laura’s life is going to change, in more ways than she realizes. She quits her job to follow her husband to his dream job. In doing so, she has to leave her daughter to stay with friends for the remainder of the school year. Her son transfers to the new school with the family, but he stays in the boarding house with the others. Laura is lost as she tries to find her footing in her new life.
Meanwhile, Rachel is also dealing with some big changes. After having a baby, her husband leaves for several months in order to support his new little family. However, motherhood isn’t as easy as it looks, especially when the newborn never sleeps and cries all the time.
Laura steps in to take over maternity leave for Rachel and finds herself in an uncomfortable situation that she never imagined when one of her students openly flirts with her.
Rachel also finds herself dealing with an uncomfortable situation when her son starts getting bruises on his body. She has to try to figure out who is hurting her child, while also wondering if she could have caused them without even trying.
The two women meet and find themselves as allies in the strange world of an all-boys boarding school.
Just like the other Kate Hewitt book, I couldn’t put it down. I have already downloaded a few more to read soon!
