Family Drama Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on The Celebrity Mother

Issue-led fiction where a failing celeb decides to adopt an Indian child to help raise her profile.  The problem is the child is ten years old, an age easily affected by media attention …  This is a moving tale, beautifully executed.

The Celebrity Mother Synopsis

Karina West was once the darling of the gossip pages and the top of the British pop charts. But now all that's fading away, and she needs something more - something both to make her life more fulfilled and more importantly, to get her back in the tabloids. And how better to achieve this double whammy than by adopting a poor, needy child from a far-off country? All that sweet, ten-year-old Devika wants is a new mummy who will take her away from her Delhi orphanage and let her have a home and a family again. She prayed to Krishna for this to be so, but was she ready for a blonde, British popstar to sweep her up and back to London? Karina and Devika are soon front-page news, but neither of them realise just how far their emotional journey will take them.
