Overview

From the outside Claire Ridgeway looks like she has it all —a handsome, successful husband, three young, healthy daughters, a beautiful home in Toronto and a cottage in Lake Country. But Claire knows there are fissures in her marriage that could threaten everything. Even so, she’s shocked when Kirk announces he’s in love with another woman. Turns out his late nights at work have been spent wining and dining this other woman.

Shattered by Kirk’s revelation, Claire is sure her marriage is over and when Kirk suggests counselling she wonders if there’s any point. But with so much at stake, shouldn’t she at least try? Not just for her and Kirk’s sake, but for their daughters...and the fourth child Kirk doesn’t even know she’s expecting.

The affair started off innocent enough when Kirk Ridgeway tried to help his fellow worker Janice through a divorce. After pretending to work late a few times, Kirk finally confesses to his wife Claire that he loves Janice. Claire is stunned that her beloved spouse and father of three, make that four since she is pregnant, children could be so unfaithful.

Kirk moves out of the house. Claire struggles to survive while the three children miss their daddy, especially Andie who allegedly is on a business trip. As Claire takes the three children to the cottage for the summer, Kirk has to decide whether he wants to stay married or go off with Janice. If he tries to stay with Claire, he risks his pride because she might refuse to take him back even with a baby on the way.

THE FOURTH CHILD is a well-written contemporary romance that centers on the impact of a male suffering a mid-life crisis. The lead couple and the children make the story line hum as each struggle in their own way with what to do next. C.J. Carmichael turns The First Wives¿ Club scenario into a cleverly designed family drama that entertains the reader while providing insight into the aftermath.
