The Other Mother by Rachel M. Harper

emotional reflective tense fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


An emotional page-turner that I feel ultimately says family and community is created, not bestowed or passed along. Finding and creating such is a challenging, but worthwhile endeavor.
