Seeking Sarah by ReShonda Tate Billingsley
"From the national bestselling and award-winning ReShonda Tate Billingsley comes this gripping and emotional exploration of the complex bond between mother and daughter.
From the time Brooke Green was seven years old, she has lived with the pain of losing her mother. Her father has done the best job he could in raising her, but a piece of her always felt empty. On the day of her father’s funeral, her grandmother breaks the shocking news: her mother, Sarah, is very much alive. She abandoned her family because she claimed she wasn’t fit for motherhood. After doing some research, Brooke discovers her mother is living in Atlanta, enjoying a great career…and a brand new family. Stunned, Brooke doesn’t know if she wants answers or revenge against the mother who abandoned her. When she meets Sarah’s husband, Tony, Brooke sees the perfect way to make her mother pay. But her plan for revenge just may leave everyone in danger, and end up costing Brooke more than she ever bargained for."
I loved this story "Seeking Sarah" that was "about finding something you so desperately crave, and losing yourself in the process."
What a good read this story that was conveyed so well to the readers. I felt so very sorry for Brooke because I found that she really didn't know how to go about getting what she wanted and that was the love of her mom. Therefore Brooke went to much from secrets, loss, deception, lies, even revenge and heartbreak that caused so much more than one would ever want to happen. End the end will Brooke finally get all she wants ...the love of her mother and a husband? Or will she have to settle for ... well, I will stop here and just say you will have to pick up "Seeking Sarah" to see how this story will all come out. Be prepared for some twist and turns as the secrets come out and a ending that will leave one shaking their heads and saying wow! You will definitely be left seeing "how important a parent's love is and how it can not only shape a child's life but also their future."
