It surprised no one when Sarah and Jack married right out of high school; not because Sarah was pregnant at 19, but because they had been inseparable since sophomore year. Sarah gave birth to twins, Mark and Julie, and a year later, Jacob. They settled in upstate New York, Jack a business manager and Sarah a Real Estate agent. They had the ‘mom and apple pie’ life. Their picturesque dream life turned into a nightmare when on a warm summer’s day at the local park, the penny dropped. What would forever be referred to as The Incident changed their family forever? Four years later, they welcomed Christian into their home. The foster child turned adopted son never understood why Sarah was overprotective but dutifully obeyed all her restrictive rules.

“Awesome book in an awesome series!!!”
WOW WOW WOW — this book was amazing!!! I do need to state that you really need to read The Shuller Series in order. Book 1 -Between the Shades of Light and Dark —- Book 2 – Prodigal Son — Then Book 3 – Sweet Child of Mine.
Sweet Child of Mine covers a brief synopsis of what has previously happened in regards to Jacob — Sarah and Jacks son. When Christopher turns 10, he thinks he sees something in the attic window. But, the attic is someplace that he is NOT allowed. His father is busy getting the quilts down from the attic when Christopher gets the idea that maybe he could help. When a day comes that his mother is not at home, his father lets him go to the attic to help. He finds a small toy monkey and sneaks it downstairs. After that he starts to envision and talks to who he thinks is Jacob. OK – I might have said more than I should and since I do NOT write spoilers, I stop here and say this: YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!! Once you get into the book, you will find it hard to stop until you reach the end!!!
WTG Kathleen Lopez — another amazing book!!!
