What Was Mine by Helen Klein Ross *Review*

* I received a eARC of this book for my honest review*

Lucy Wakefield is a seemingly ordinary woman who does something extraordinary in a desperate moment: she takes a baby girl from a shopping cart and raises her as her own. It’s a secret she manages to keep for over two decades—from her daughter, the babysitter who helped raise her, family, coworkers, and friends.

When Lucy’s now-grown daughter Mia discovers the devastating truth of her origins, she is overwhelmed by confusion and anger and determines not to speak again to the mother who raised her. She reaches out to her birth mother for a tearful reunion, and Lucy is forced to flee to China to avoid prosecution. What follows is a ripple effect that alters the lives of many and challenges our understanding of the very meaning of motherhood.


It is rare that I read books that will make me cry.  What Was Mine got me bawling, made me laugh and got me angry at parts. I don't think I have read a book like this in a long time but I am so glad I have decided to read this because I loved this book.  

It is well written and got me lose track of time because I was so into this book.  

I highly recommend this.  

I give this book 5 out of 5.

What Was Mine by  Helen Klein Ross is now available in stores near you and online.
