Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Love in the Present Tense was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick in 2007. This is better. It follows some thirty years in the life of a baby abandoned in a wood and of the man who found him, lost him to the child’s grandmother, and then found him again. The child is a delinquent, the man a patient, realistic fellow, their story is related in chunks focusing on each in turn, but continuous, in real time, unbroken and totally engaging. In a smooth flowing, economic style you are drawn in and need to know what happens. A wonderful book.

Comparison: Jodi Picoult, Anita Shreve, Mitch Albom.

If you like Catherine Ryan Hyde you might also like to read books by Dorothy Koomson, Jodi Picoult and Jane Fallon.

Synopsis

When I Found You by Catherine Ryan Hyde

When Nathan McCann discovers a newborn baby boy half buried in the woods, he assumes he’s found a tiny dead body. But then the baby moves and in one remarkable moment, Nathan’s life is changed forever.

The baby is sent to grow up with his grandmother, but Nathan can’t forget him and is compelled to pay her a visit. He asks for one simple promise – that one day she will introduce the boy to Nathan and tell him, ‘This is the man who found you in the woods.’

Years pass and Nathan assumes that the old lady has not kept her promise, until one day an angry, troubled boy arrives on his doorstep with a suitcase . . .
