あらすじ・解説

She gave away her children. Now she wants them back.

Charlotte Morgan knows how it feels to desperately want a baby. As a child, seeing her mum devastated by losing her longed-for babies, Charlotte wished another woman could give her mother what she so craved.

Now Charlotte’s a mum herself and knowing how much love her daughter, Alice, brings into her life, she vows to help others achieve their dreams of becoming a parent.

When she meets Malcolm and Brenda on a surrogacy website, it seems she's found the perfect couple. In their late 40s, they have wealth and an enviable life, but there’s one thing missing – a child of their own.

When Charlotte falls pregnant with twins, the pair are overjoyed. And while Charlotte’s heart breaks as she hands them over, her reward is knowing how much happiness the two tiny babies are going to bring into their life.

But are Malcolm and Brenda all they seem? As secrets become unravelled, Charlotte is forced to face that she has given her children to virtual strangers. And when Malcolm and Brenda disappear without a trace, Charlotte is plunged into a frantic search for the babies she carried – before it’s too late.... 

A gripping psychological thriller with a heart stopping ending – listeners of The Wife Between Us, Rachel Abbott and C.L Taylor will not want to put this down....

That did NOT go the direction I thought it was headed. I was hooked from the beginning to the end.

Weak Main character

Main character is weak, nobody would be this naïve. The story overall was entertaining, but unrealistic and not authentic in anyway. However the author is very creative which saved the story.

Sleepy little girl British accent with a little girl voice

The story is good but it builds up to something much much better than the book outcome actually is. But it’s not that bad just very predictable. The narrator; oh boy…. I have no words. Can’t tell you how tired I was listening to that mambo jambo.

Loved it!!!!

I really question some of the nitpicking reviews on this story. I thought it was a great read. It sucked me in from the beginning and kept me on my toes to the wonderful ending. There was nothing I didn't like about this book! A++

Surprising twists

This was an entertaining story that kept me listening when I should have been working. It’s not your typical story.

One issue but good

The story line is great and the twist is WOW, but you can skip the first several chapters as it has nothing to do with the story. Not sure if the author just needed to fill some more pages or what.

Even better on Audio

Some books just do it for you! For me this is one of those. It is such a wonderful narrative! It is an everyday tale, something that could happen to you or me, our next door neighbour or indeed anyone we know. Charlotte and her husband are just an ordinary couple who decide to do something extraordinary so that another less fortunate couple can share in the happiness and joy they have experienced with Alice.

Things don't go to plan and the emotional roller coaster develops apace gripping the reader and making this a page turner. I found myself to be there with them all along, feeling their emotions and hoping for a good outcome.

Not a lot is known about surrogacy. It is not a subject that is discussed everyday unless something goes wrong and hits the headlines. In this book Ruby Speechley took the subject to another level and exposed a frightening avenue that surrogate babies can go down.

The story, reactions and emotions are so realistic that at the end of the book I found myself wondering what will the Government now do to make sure this does not happen again. This feeling of 'something must be done now' speaks to the high level of the writer's research and craftsmanship.

A wonderful debut and I'm looking forward to Ruby Speechley's next offerings.

I first read this book on Kindle and the review above reflects my thoughts. Now I have heard it on audio and despite the fact that I knew the story I really enjoyed it again. I found the reader excellent and her voice appropriate to the story.

I now look forward to more Audio books from Ruby Speechley.

Really enjoyed

Took me a while to get into it at first, restarted it a couple of times determined for it not to be another waste of time and a credit and was so glad I did.

Good characters, good storyline, and didn't see the ending coming.

worth a listen

Well narrated and intriguing

Liked this book and thought the narration was perfect for the character.
A bit slow to get going but really gripping in final third.
