Review of THE LOST CHILD by Emily Gunnis

This is a breathtaking and heartbreaking story of the undying love a mother has for her child. Harriet was the private maid to Mrs. Cecilia Barton. Cecilia is a gorgeous young society wife who finds herself in a loveless marriage. Harriet is married to Jacob, the love of her life who comes back from Normandy with a horrible case of PTSD. Rebecca is Harriet’s devoted daughter. Now grown with her own two daughters, Rebecca is faced with a crisis in both of their lives. Iris cannot get pregnant and Jessie suffers from postpartum psychosis. Written with poignancy and compassion, this is a story spanning three generations of strong women who overcome insurmountable obstacles in order to survive a harsh world. Fans of women’s literature will applaud this author’s efforts to deal with such difficult topics in such a forthright and empathetic manner.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher/Amazon via a Goodreads Giveaway. I was not required to write a positive review.

This wonderful story is available now from Amazon. I highly recommend it, but there is some violence in it that is necessary to tell the story.
