Ever since she attended college, Kelly McLeod wanted to become a judge. To that end when her stepfather stole her inheritance, Kelly earned money by becoming a surrogate mother. Now at thirty-five Kelly is the youngest judge in the Massachusetts court system. However, her beloved mother never saw Kelly attain to her goal because she died a few months earlier. <P>Every Sunday, Kelly visits her mother¿s grave, but begins to notice a handsome hunk also regularly pays his respects to his mother. The duo becomes friends and soon lovers, but neither realizes that Kelly is the biological mother of Randall¿s daughter. <P>CUSTODY is a warm family drama with no villains or heroes just people doing their best to cope with life. Though coincidence enables Kelly and Randall to meet, the audience needs a warning that they will stay up all night to finish this novel in one sitting. Nancy Thayer¿s brilliance resides in her ability to make interesting tales starring people just like you and I. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
