The Dilemma by Julia Roberts / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @JuliaRobertsTV

My child means everything to me. But saving his life means destroying my best friend’s family…

I didn’t plan to fall pregnant, but when I found out, I was overjoyed. Even though I’d be going it alone, I swore I’d give my baby everything they needed.

But I didn’t know who the man I met on that sweltering summer night, the father of my child, really was.

I decided to keep his secret to protect the innocent… but then my beautiful baby was born with a rare illness, desperately needing a transplant.

Now, as I gaze into my son’s wide and trusting eyes, I know the choice I have to make: for the sake of my precious little boy, I have to destroy my friend’s happiness.

But when the truth comes out, what if saving my baby means losing him forever?




People lie. That’s just the way it is and they do it for different reasons. Sometimes it are white lies like telling your children Santa Claus or the Easter Burry are real. Sometimes it’s because you want to prank someone, but sometimes it’s because they have done something they are ashamed of and they know that telling the truth equals hurting a loved one.

Why, if they are so embarrassed, did they act the way they did? That’s a one million dollar question. It can be it was an accident happening, but from time to time they know exactly what they are doing. And they just cannot control themselves. Repentance comes after sin.

Some people are man (or woman) enough to fess up and face the music. Others want to forget what went on and hope and pray their secret will be safe forever and a day.

Some use the lame excuse saying they drank too much and did not realise what they were doing. Sorry, but you are an adult and you should know better. If you cannot hold your liquor, drink water or stop before the alcohol takes over.

Think about the lives you turn upside down with your selfish behaviour!

This is such a good book, but it has cost me a fortune in tissues!! Maybe I should consider buying shares in Kleenex 😉. I love these stories, but I cannot help it. I always get very emotional.

That’s, of course, the sign the author did a great job. Moving people with their words is the name of the game. I guess reading reviews where the readers admit the book had this effect on them, must be very pleasing.

After having writing such an amazing book, the praise is well deserved. I will translate my praise in a number of stars.  5 stars to be precise. 😊

Thank you
