Publisher Description

As I saw my new-born baby’s face for the first time I tried desperately to capture her face in my mind—to stamp it onto my eyelids. As she was taken from me I knew I might never see my daughter again.

38 years later…


‘You were adopted’. Three short words and Sabina’s life fractures. There would forever be a Before those words, and an After.


Pregnant with her own child, Sabina can’t understand how a mother could abandon her daughter, or why her parents have kept the past a secret.


Determined to find the woman who gave her away, what she discovers will change everything, not just for Sabina, but for the women who have loved her all these years.


From the bestselling author of Me Without You comes another touching, beautifully told story about the pain of separation and the enduring strength of love.

Find out what readers are saying about The Secret Daughter


‘I adored this novel. Absolutely, 100% adored it. Kelly Rimmer is a beautiful writer … The Secret Daughter packed such an emotional, powerful punch, one that I don't think I've felt before that I'll always associate with her novels from now on.’ Becca’s Books


‘Kelly Rimmer did an amazing job of telling such a heartbreaking tale. This story had me laughing, crying and hugging my daughter a wee tighter. I loved this story!’ Steph and Chris Book Reviews


‘This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster from the first words… The Secret Daughter is a story that will stay with you long after you have finished the book.’ Ask a Bookworm


‘This was a refreshingly different read which I would put in the same vein as Diane Chamberlain but this was even better than some of Diane's latest releases. This is no girl meets boy and falls in love read but rather a heartbreaking, beautifully written story based on true facts… I would highly recommend The Secret Daughter, a thought provoking, emotional story not to be missed.’ Shaz’s Book Blog


This was such a moving story, convincingly told. It is almost as though you are reading a memoir rather than a novel … a really compelling read and would definitely recommend it.’ Portobello Book Blog

Good

Good book, but her other books are much much better in my opinion.
No doubt though, Rimmer is a great writer.

An amazing read!

I could not put this book down! I found this story enchanting & also very eye opening to a practise that happened in Australia I knew nothing about. Thank you for writing about this and opening our eyes to a period in time that must have been soul crushing to the victims. I truly enjoyed this book & cant wait to read your next!
