Introducing A Mother's Goodbye by Kate Hewitt... *GIVEAWAY*

 It's such a pleasure to welcome you back to my blog, Kate! Wishing you much success with your latest release, A MOTHER'S GOODBYE - let's kick off with my questions...

           What was your first job? Did you like or dislike it? Why?
My first job was working in a Barnes & Noble bookstore, which I thought would be a dream job but wasn’t. It was poorly paid yet everyone who worked there was required to have a university degree, and everyone squabbled over what sections of the store they were in charge of. I quit after a month.

2.)              Do you have a pet peeve? If so what is it?
I have a grammar pet peeve, which is when people use an apostrophe to indicate a plural—ie, cat’s rather than cats.

3.)              Would you describe your style as shabby chic, timeless elegance, eclectic, country or ___­­­_? Shabby with only a little bit of chic! I work from home and I am a busy mum so I tend not to have much in the way of style.

4.)              Tell me about your book A Mother’s Goodbye and where you got your inspiration for it?

I got my inspiration from a newspaper article I read on open adoptions, when the birth and adoptive mothers have ongoing contact. I thought how difficult that could be, and then I threw in a surprise what-if to explore the dynamics of the relationship.

5.)              Who is your role model? Why?
I have lots of role models! I think at the moment I am very inspired by my friend Rachel, who is dealing with breast cancer with both fortitude and cheer. She is amazing!

6.)              How much of your book is realistic?
Hopefully all of it! I try to write about real situations and real emotions but of course any fictional story has an element of fantasy about it, since the author is orchestrating the plot twists and turns.

7.)              What are your ambitions for your writing career?
This is something I’ve been thinking about  recently! Of course I’d love to be rich and famous with bestseller after bestseller, but ultimately what I really want is for my books to make a difference to people—to make them think and then to hope.

8.)              Share one fact about yourself that would surprise people.
I am quite tall—nearly six feet!

A Mother's Goodbye by Kate Hewitt

Blurb: My arms ache with the need to reach and hold my precious child, and then to never let go. But I can’t. I know I can’t.’

Heather is devastated. There’s no way she can keep her baby. She can barely pay the bills as it is. But when she meets Grace, a wealthy, single career woman, who wants a baby more than anything, Heather believes she has found the perfect adoptive mother.

As Grace and Heather’s lives become entwined, they are tested to breaking point, though neither can deny the other’s love for the child. But just when they think they are learning how to live with each other, they receive devastating news that turns their fragile world upside down.

Will either mother know what is the right thing to do for the child they both love?

An absolutely gripping, emotional drama with a tear-jerking twist. If you love Jodi Picoult, Kelly Rimmer or Diane Chamberlain, this will warm your heart, make you cry, and stay with you forever.
