Save My Daughter by Sam Vickery

I’m so delighted to tell you about this beautiful book today, as part of the tour. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

As soon as we sat on the ride I knew something was wrong. I couldn’t relax. I couldn’t hear the theme park music, the giggles of my two other children. I’d left my baby in someone else’s care. And I knew I’d made a mistake…

With her two beautiful children and newborn baby Ella, Lily’s life is full of love and laughter. She gave up her job to be a stay-at-home mother, and though she sometimes envies the freedom of best friend Hannah, Lily wouldn’t trade it for anything.

But Lily’s world implodes when Hannah disappears with Ella one day, and Lily fears from the text message she receives that Hannah doesn’t intend to come back:

You don’t deserve her.

It’s true that Lily has been keeping secrets about her marriage from Hannah, ones she thought only she and her husband knew. Suddenly Lily realises that there are things she doesn’t know about Hannah too – and that by keeping her husband’s secrets, she might pay the ultimate sacrifice.

A rollercoaster ride of emotions, Save My Daughter will break your heart. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Kate Hewitt and Diane Chamberlain will be swept away by Sam Vickery’s utterly gorgeous novel.

My Review:

What an emotional and heartbreaking read this is! I absolutely love this author’s books, and this one is just beautiful.

Lily and Hannah are best friends, and even though their lives have gone in different directions, they are so close. It’s hard to believe that Hannah would ever do anything to hurt her friend.

We open in the theme park, having a family day out, and you can really sense the atmosphere there, of people enjoying a warm summer’s day with their children. But the atmosphere is tense as Lily gets onto the ride with her children, as she feels a sense of something not being quite right. What follows is so shocking, and I could not put the book down.

The story is told from both Hannah’s and Lily’s points of view, and it’s hard not to like and empathise with both of them. Although they are very close, each of them has secrets that they haven’t told the other, and it really shows how you can never fully know what’s going on in someone else’s life, and how the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

I just loved everything about this book. The author creates such real characters, with such real lives, that you just feel as if you know them. And the plot is just so compelling, I was totally drawn into this story, and really had to find out how it would all end.

An emotional and beautiful read, I was captivated from start to finish. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
