My beautiful girl, you are my missing piece. You came into my life and changed everything, placing your warm little hand in mine, and looking up at me with your sky-blue eyes, so full of hope. Little did we know what lay ahead, but for a while at least, we had each other…
When I first met you, darling Marina, you were just five years old. You took my breath away, with your long, dark waves and pink cheeks. You needed me, and I instantly knew I’d do anything to protect you. When six years ago, my heart was shattered, I was left utterly broken – but I didn’t know just how lost I was until you filled that hole in my heart.
You quickly became the centre of my world, your sweet laugh my favourite sound. But then things started to change… I put my pain down to work stress, but when the diagnosis came through it was worse than I could ever have imagined.
Our world is about to come crashing down around us, little one, and I don’t know how to stop it. I’ve finally discovered the truth behind the betrayal that rocked me to my core all those years ago. The pain of my past could be the one thing that saves us – or tears us apart. We’re just becoming a family, Marina, should I risk everything to trust the one person who hurt me? They could be your only hope.
We only have each other… But if I don’t make it, what will happen to you?
The Child Between Us is a heart-wrenching story about an impossible choice and what it really means to be a mother. Readers who love Kate Hewitt, Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain will be utterly gripped.

Alison Ragsdale truly enjoys bringing us through life experiences that teach us compassion, empathy and how to understand the human condition in a more loving manner.
I feel as though her stories make me a better person. She shares lessons on the importance of family and love, in general. Anything that makes me think about being a better, more understanding or forgiving person is a book that I would always recommend. So, I am highly recommending this story.
At the center of “The Child Between Us” you’ll meet a Mother, sisters and a child.
I don’t know where Alison Ragsdale comes up with these genius scenarios. I’m always left thinking deeply.
Behind the doors of families there is always something going on that isn’t being shared with the world. Alison Ragsdale brings these to light. She makes you stare in the mirror and ask yourself “What would I do?”.
Her tear inducing, soul-stirring, moving stories have you investing in Kleenex tissues.
Don’t miss Alison Ragsdale’s novel that may leave a painful ache in your heart, but will make you appreciate family so much more leaving that ache to warm you up and call a family member of your own.
Alison’s ultimate lesson is always love. I highly recommend this book.
