Review: Finding Mother - Anne Allen

Finding MotherFinding Mother by Anne Allen
Ann's rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nicole is a woman in her thirties whose husband has proven unfaithful…again. She knows she is adopted and decides that this is the time to find out who she really is and what she wants out of her life. So she finds her birth mother and her journey begins.

This is an absolutely lovely story about family, adoption and secrets and how they’re passed down from generation to generation. This story made me cry and made me wistful. It also made me smile and feel hope. I am not very good at geography, but Anne’s descriptions made me feel like I could see the islands and the landscapes she describes, down to the lovely gardens and beaches.

Overall, this is a terrific story and very poignant. It is definitely on my “recommend to friends” list.

Finding Mother


Prepare to be swept away by a heart-warming tale of family relationships and love. 

Three women. Three generations. Sacrifices for love…
Who is she really? Nicole is about to find out as she searches for her real mother; the woman who gave her away at birth. With her marriage in tatters, she sets out from England: travelling to Spain, Jersey and Guernsey before the extraordinary story of her real family is finally revealed.
Nicole becomes an unwitting catalyst for change in the family. Two women are forced to reveal long-buried secrets. One going back as far as the Second World War. Lives are transformed as choices have to be made and the past laid to rest…
This contemporary romantic drama is the second of The Guernsey Novels, a series of stand-alone books by the award-winning author Anne Allen. It is likely to appeal to lovers of the works of Joanna Trollope and Maeve Binchy
