Description

A mother's worst nightmare, a chance at redemption, and a deadly secret that haunts a family across the generations

There's only room for one mother in this family.

Claire Abrams' dreams became a nightmare when she passed on a genetic mutation that killed her little boy. Now she wants a second chance to be a mother, and finds it in Robert Nash, a maverick fertility doctor who works under the radar with Jillian Hendricks, a cunning young scientist bent on making her mark - and seducing her boss.

Claire, Robert, and Jillian work together to create the world's first baby with three genetic parents - an unprecedented feat that could eliminate inherited disease. But when word of their illegal experiment leaks to the wrong person, Robert escapes into hiding with the now-pregnant Claire, leaving Jillian to serve out a prison sentence that destroys her future.

Ten years later, a spunky girl named Abigail begins to understand that all is not right with the reclusive man and woman she knows as her parents. But the family's problems are only beginning. Jillian, hardened by a decade of jealousy and loss, has returned - and nothing will stop her from reuniting with the man and daughter who should have been hers. 

Past, present, and future converge in this mesmerizing psychological thriller from critically acclaimed author Kira Peikoff.

Compelling plot, great characters, deliciously evil villain

This book was on my wish list for a long time and I’m so glad I finally decided to purchase it. I’ve been in a long drought of good books and this one really satisfied my thirst.

The plot is absolutely compelling; what will happen when someone decides to create a child that has three genetic parents? (After writing that sentence, I decided to look it up and it turns out that this may have already been done!)

Overall, the plot and characters were compelling and the author did a good job of making me care about them. (And, she also made me hope the evil person got what was deserved. No,spoilers here). The suspense was well developed and I was not sure how everything would be resolved.

Then the author unleashed a surprise that just made me gasp, turn off my speaker and start yelling “oh that is so brilliant” (luckily no one was around to hear me). The ending took a few more twists and was quite satisfying.

My only problem with the story was some of Abigail’s behavior. I have a niece the same age and the cleverness of this character is just not realistic. I mostly put up with it for the sake of the story, but at one point she made the comment, “what if xx bleeds out“ Seriously! Even a precocious and brilliant 11-year-old would not use this phrase.

Overall, a fabulous and highly recommended book. The three readers were really good. I think Marni Penning narrates Abigail and she convinced me she was a kid.

The only annoying thing about such a great book is finishing it. What in the heck do I read next? (I know Keira Peikoff has a couple of other books, but I try to avoid two in a row by the same author unless it’s a series.)
