Lost Daughter: If you think photos aren’t important… wait until they’re all you have left of your child.
Your life isn’t perfect, but you’re still happy. Your husband has stuck by you and he’s a good dad. Your daughter Becca makes your heart explode with love.
And then, in the time it takes to say ‘bad mother’, there’s no longer a place for you in your own family. Your right to see your child has disappeared.
Life goes on in your house – family dinners, missing socks and evening baths – but you aren’t there anymore. Becca may be tucked up in bed in Rose Cottage, but she is as lost to you as if she had been snatched from under your nose.
Everyone knows you deserve this, for you what you did. Except you’re starting to realize that things maybe aren’t how you thought they were, and your husband isn’t who you thought he was either. That the truths you’ve been so diligently punishing yourself for are built on sand, and the daughter you have lost has been unfairly taken from you. Wouldn’t that be more than any mother could bear?
A heart-wrenchingly emotional drama for fans of Lisa Wingate, Jill Childs, and Jodi Picoult.
“She had been so sure. And she had been so wrong. But even if she had been right, there was no excuse and no justification for what she’d done.
Eventually she heard a car outside. A key turned in the door and she heard Mitch say to Becca: ‘Why don’t you go upstairs and get changed out of your school uniform?’
He must have decided it would be better if Becca was out of the way when he confronted her.
She couldn’t blame him for treating her as a risk.
He came into the kitchen. There were splashes of dark dried blood on his clothes. He stood there and gave her a long, hard stare.
She said, ‘Are you OK?’
‘It’s too late, Rachel.’
The car outside started again and was driven away into the distance.”
