“When Love Returns” by Kim Vogel Sawyer, book review
The Zimmerman Restoration Series Trilogy, book 3
This is the conclusion of the Zimmerman Restoration series and it really brings all the lose pieces together. Suzie Zimmerman has been restored with her mother and accepted by her siblings, along with her adopted daughter, Alexa. But she still is estranged from her biological daughter, whom she gave up for adoption at her birth. While she gets to see Anna-Grace, she is unaware that Suzie is her mother.
Alexa is interested in finding her birth mother. She works with family friends to do some investigative work.
Cynthia is content with her family, but always wonders about the daughter she abandoned at the unwed mother’s home all those years ago. As a surprise Christmas gift, her husband, Glen, gives her the gift of finding her daughter, by hiring a PI. But they are all surprised by Cynthia’s obsession with finding her daughter and how she begins to neglect her family.
This is the conclusion of the Zimmerman family story and it explores many of the emotions and issues surrounding adoption from both the mother, father, and child’s point of view.
I enjoyed this book and while not surprised with the ending, did enjoy the story.
