Overview

Ever since her mother left them, nine-year-old Kelsey Shepherd has been raised by her dad, Mark, who's also the principal at her school. Kelsey loves her dad, and she misses her mom--but she's uncomfortable about the secret her mother wants her to keep.

Meredith Foster, Kelsey's teacher from last year, seems to know there's something wrong. She seems to feel it. Meredith comes over to visit sometimes, and Kelsey likes that.

Maybe Meredith and her dad could fall in love. That would be good, even if principals and teachers aren't supposed to kiss...

A Child’s Wish is the eleventh stand-alone romance by American author, Tara Taylor Quinn. Mark Shepherd, headmaster and single father of nine-year-old Kelsey, is doing the best he can. But Kelsey can be a handful: her behaviour leaves something to be desired, especially around his lover, Susan. Susan’s best friend, Meredith Foster is a teacher at Mark’s school, where her perceptive observation of her class may have saved more than one child, but is causing Mark any number of headaches. Meredith seems to believe she has a gift, but he’s not convinced. The fact that he finds her attractive is an added problem. While the title, cover picture and back cover blurb seem to indicate a light romance, this story is anything but. There is romance, but it is far outweighed by other issues: paedophiles; domestic violence; a crystal meth lab; an influential politician who manipulates the media to protect his reputation; psychological intimidation; a mother whose addiction blunts her morals and endangers her child. A happily ever after ending, but definitely no light read.
