Shattered expectations and tragic mistakes drag a couple through the trial of their lives.
When Beth discovers that Phil, the man she loves, is not who he says he is, she flees New York without telling him she’s pregnant.
A year after their daughter, Melissa, is born and given up for adoption, Beth learns an awful truth that forces her to return to New York and face the father of her child.
Phil is moving on with his life, striving to forget his love for Beth, when she suddenly reappears with shocking news. He will do anything to rescue the daughter he did not know existed, but can he ever forgive Beth for what she’s done?
Can Beth and Phil rediscover the love they once shared, while Melissa’s Fate hangs in the balance?
Awesome story concept!
I was thrilled and privileged to be given an advance review copy of Melissa's Fate as a beta reader. I loved the well rounded characters with strong clear voices, so realistic I could see and hear them. I was intensely interested in how things turned out for Beth, Phil, and Melissa, so much so, that I read the book in one day. I literally could not put it down!
