Blurb: As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers a tiny skeleton, buried for years. For journalist Kate Waters, it’s a story that deserves attention. She cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building Site Baby?
As Kate investigates, she unearths connections to a crime that rocked the city decades earlier: A newborn baby was stolen from the maternity ward in a local hospital and was never found. Her heartbroken parents were left devastated by the loss.
But there is more to the story, and Kate is drawn—house by house—into the pasts of the people who once lived in this neighborhood that has given up its greatest mystery. And she soon finds herself the keeper of unexpected secrets that erupt in the lives of three women—and torn between what she can and cannot tell…
Erica’s Thoughts: The book starts kind of slow, but there comes a turning point where you go WTF how did I not see that coming. Fiona writes an incredible story about hope and loss. Having a baby when you are a baby yourself is so scary and to have no one to help you is even more scary…. This is what happens. A child goes missing from the hospital right after it is born. Everyone but the mom believes it has been killed. Mother knows best though right. So when a DNA test is done and proves that the missing baby and the body of the baby is match the entire story and city gets blown to pieces. Kate is the journalist who can feel there is more to this than anyone can see so she does some digging.
Fiona is also the writer of The Widow, which was another book that took a bit to get into but worth it in the end. She is able to hide things from you in the book till the very last moment that you need to know it.
