You Said Forever opening line: ‘May I ask how Chloe is?’
You Said Forever
Charlotte Goodman is living the dream. Surrounded by family, friends and a stunning vineyard overlooking the ocean, it would be difficult for anyone to believe that she has a troubled past.However, haunted by the theft of a young girl, Charlotte begins to realise the enormity of what she did all those years ago, and soon finds herself having to make the most harrowing decision any woman would ever have to face.
Charlotte made a rash decision when she took Chloe from her parents. As a social worker she knew taking Chloe away from them was the right thing to do. But not putting her into the system was not the right way to go about things. Instead she kidnapped the three year old and took her half way across the world to New Zealand. Now she is faced with a dilemna so large she doesn’t know how to deal with it. Social services might take her children away. And she feels giving Chloe up is the only solution.
Susan Lewis once again thrills with her way with words and emotions. Child abuse is a real threat in todays society and this book highlights just how easily children can be targeted. This book had me gripped from the start and in tears at the end.
