BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION (15): Someone Else’s Life, by Katie Dale

BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased, which have been neglected for a long time.

TITLE: Someone Else’s Life

AUTHOR: Katie Dale

HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since July — Kelsey sent it to me for RAK!

WHY I’M READING IT: This book looks SOOO GOOD! To find out that the person you called “mom” your whole life wasn’t your mother at all? To know that you won’t catch a disease that you thought you would most likely end up with? This book sounds amazing and the cover is just gorgeous!

SYNOPSISWhen seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all…

Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family’s deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own – one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all…
