A NIGHT, A SECRET ... A CHILD
A NIGHT, A SECRET … A CHILD (3) by Miranda Lee: Nicolas and Serina were high school sweethearts, but when Nicolas chose a career as a world- class pianist over Serina, he broke her heart. When Serina’s daughter writes to Nicolas to beg him to return home and judge a fundraising talent contest, Nicolas can’t refuse, especially when 12-year-old Felicity mentions in her letter that Serina is a widow. When Nicolas comes home, Serina is determined to keep the truth of Felicity’s parentage from him. This is an engaging book with a realistically portrayed child, but the long pages of told — not shown — backstory and a summarized ending mar the story.
