Author: Trudy Stiles
Book Title: Dear Emily Series: Forever Family #1
Genre: New Adult/Romance


Two women. Carly and Tabitha. They each have suffered life-altering events that have left them both traumatically damaged.

Carly Sloan’s life was perfect until her security and innocence was torn from her. The vast repercussions from horrific events threaten to destroy her stability and her chances for a happily ever after. Kyle Finnegan comes into Carly’s life at the height of her turmoil. Can he help her find what she desires most?

Tabitha Fletcher has constantly suffered from a very young age. She has been hiding from her past, which was full of sadness, loss and abuse. She has been so brutally damaged that she has very little hope for redemption. The revolving door of men only leads her deeper into misery.

What circumstance brings these two women together and can they help each other heal? And will they each find what they need?


“Dear Emily” is the first book in the “Forever Family” series.

This book is not suitable for young readers. It is intended for mature adults only (18+). It contains strong language, adult/sexual situations, non-consensual sex and some violence.



How do you begin to explain the emotions you feel after reading such a book that you haven't come across before, that leaves your heart feeling so many emotional you don't even know where to begin.
This is where this book left me. Feeling a sense of courage, hope, heartache, loss and love. The brillant writing from Trudy definitely showed throughout when the story unfolded.

The story grabs hold of you by the chest when each of the mother's tell their story. Throughout, you are giving insight into each mums story from the past to the present. I felt the emotional rollercoaster along with each of the characters. So many emotions with both sides, from a mother who is willing to give up their unborn child to give the child a better life, to another mother who went through a tragic event that causes her to not able to produce a baby. 

After being a mother myself, this beautiful story certainly brought new respect to those who make the strongest decision in life to give up such a beautiful baby, however provides hope and joy to another family who is now just beginning.

The ending certainly left you on the edge of your seat, with a box of Kleenex discarded around you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this beautiful captured story that has never been seen. I certainly cannot wait to see what the next installment to the series will bring with further to Tabitha's story.
