For bookclubs, there are some suggested discussion points in the end and again, with the possible exception of 2 or 3 questions, the majority of the discussion points do not touch on overtly religious themes. I can therefore recommend this book to readers of all backgrounds and beliefs.

The two protagonists Amelia and Graham, the biological father of Lucy, start out as not even friends, but over the course of the book find love for each other. I think that is the fact that makes this book interesting to me. It is not the usual, people fall in love with each in the beginning, than fate intervenes and they are separated, only to find each other and marry to live happily ever after in the end. This book starts off with two strangers and we get to experience as readers how their love for each other develops through the shared bond of loving Lucy. So when Lucy is in danger, the situation forces Graham and Amelia to work together to save the child they both love and through that ordeal their relationship changes as well.
Overall, this is a very good first novel by Sarah Ladd. Enjoyable and quick to read, with characters that are well developed and a storyline that keeps the reader engaged.
