Summary

Carmel, a 40-year-old Irish woman, is living a life that’s fine, not exciting or awful, just fine. She has a house, a husband, it’s all okay. She never had kids, but that’s just life, right? She knows she should be grateful. She’s better off than a lot of people.

Then one day, out of the blue, she gets a Facebook message from a total stranger with information that could transform her life, for better or for much worse. It could be a scam. It could be malicious. It could be a crazy person.

But what if what they say is true?

Her finger hovers over the screen. Delete or reply?

Endearing Main Character

The story of Carmel is both endearing and informative. What the author reveals in the afterword about Irish Catholic orphanages of the era is telling, if not shocking. But the character of Sharif and his smooth words of persuasion are just too much of a stretch. The story he spins feels so much like a scam that it makes the reader wonder at Carmel’s gullibility. It doesn’t help that Sharif’s voice is so smooth and oily that the reader recoils from him. The ending, somewhat redeems the his character, but still leaves the reader a bit wary. Carmel, however, grows increasingly endearing as the story concludes.

From Meek and Mild to Confident and Bold

A wonderful story that draws you as the reader into it. Loved how Carmel decides to find her mother and leaves behind a toxic marriage. At the end, Jean shares where the idea for the story came from. Can't wait to hear or read the next in the series. Wish it was on Audible .
