“The Secret Mother” by Shalini Boland

Narrated by Katie Villa

Tessa Markham comes home to find a little boy in her kitchen. He thinks she’s his mother. But Tessa doesn’t have any children. 

Not anymore.

She doesn’t know who the child is or how he got there.

After contacting the police, Tessa comes under suspicion for snatching the boy. She must fight to prove her innocence. But how can she convince everyone she’s not guilty when even those closest to her are questioning the truth? And when Tessa doesn’t even trust herself…

This story had me intrigued from the opening chapter. Tessa comes home to find a child claiming to be her son in her kitchen. She is thrown for a loop. Now she can’t help but want to unravel the mystery of this child. The process will force her to confront her own history and even question her sanity. I couldn’t help but hope for the best even when everything seemed to be working against her.

This story has some surprising twists. I liked the pace of the story, it kept moving forward without dragging but also didn’t feel rushed. The story is well narrated by Katie Villa. She adds the right amount of drama to her narration to make the story come alive without overdoing it. I thoroughly enjoyed this listen.
