Pretty Baby by Mary Kubrica

Product DetailsThis book was our book club selection for the month of June.  (Hey, I always like to get done early).    I read the first book of this author,  The Good Girl, and absolutely hated it.   I had the entire plot just by looking at the cover, I thought it was that obvious.  So it was with great reluctance that I read this one.  It is much better than the first.

Heidi is a social worker - married to a business man with one teenage daughter.  Heidi has always wanted to slew of kids, but a cruel twist of fate denies her that ,leaving teenage Zoe an only child.   So Heidi poors her maternal instincts into her clients and saving people.

Then one day she sees a teenage girl on a train.  The girl has a small suitcase and from the look and smell of her, it's fairly obvious that she and the baby are living on the streets.  Naturally Heidi's desire to help switches into overdrive.

I won't give any more of the plot away.  I enjoyed that there were unforeseen twists and turns.  Nothing about this book was obvious.  I think it will make for an interesting discussion.  I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.
