Publisher's Description

Susanne Carson's well-ordered family life is thrown into devastating chaos when Brianna, a young teen, appears on her doorstep, claiming to be the daughter of Susanne's husband, David.

The Other Daughter by Miralee Ferrell, begins with a shock and rift growing between characters. Susanne Carson is at home the day of her birthday, waiting for her children to return from school. Her husband David is the boss of his own construction company and away at work. Planning to be home late, he moves their date plans even later into the evening. That was the only thing on Susanne’s mind until the sound of a car racing away brought her out of her dozing and she moved to the door to see what all the commotion is about.

Standing at the door is Brianna, a fourteen-year-old without a mother. All her life she had been told that her father didn’t want her, which had caused many problems between her and her mother. She has only a suitcase, and she claims that she is David’s daughter. Susanne’s mind spirals into a whirlwind of questions and fears.

Throughout the story, readers can see David’s connection with God along with how the family reacts to this unexpected and painful situation. But after the resurfaced memory of his cheating ordeal with another woman back when he and Susanne were engaged, David’s struggle is apparent. Pushing his wife farther from God because of his past mistake, David begs for forgiveness from her and prays that God will show her the way.

During all of this hectic rifting between the husband and wife, their children get to know Brianna and begin to value her. Over time, it’s obvious that Brianna needs to stay, but the parents still aren’t sure.

All in all, the story is well written. The twists and turns that take readers through the novel sustain interest while building suspense and curiosity about what will happen next. It is a clever plot idea, and I must applaud Ferrell’s writing style. This novel I would suggest for teenagers and older, as some of the things that happen throughout the book may not be acceptable for a younger audience. -- Eliza M.
