Description of this Book

A heart-rending, profoundly moving novel about protecting the ones you love from the secrets that will hurt them most. Cassie and Erin are sisters. They are close - in age, looks and personality - but there is one crucial difference: Cassie is adopted. At seventeen, Cassie sets out to find her birth mother. She is hungry for the truth, but she discovers her adoption was far more complicated than even she could have imagined. In uncovering her real identity Cassie learns her adoptive parents have kept a terrible secret from her her whole life, which now threatens to destroy everything she has ever held dear.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I was so invested in every word of this novel. An unthinkable situation, but highly believable, this story is spellbinding, real, and brilliantly written. I felt for every character. It mines the depth of every possible human emotion. Caroline Bond will go far. * Carol Mason on THE SECOND CHILD * Caroline Bond takes a complex situation and has written a thoughtful, wrenching and, at times, tear-jerking novel. * Elizabeth Buchan on THE SECOND CHILD * I stayed up long into the night to finish The Second Child...a carefully crafted and utterly compelling tale of lost opportunity and impossible choices. * Amanda Brooke, on THE SECOND CHILD *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
