Just Like Other Daughters

(2013)
A novel by

 
"Beautifully written with rare insight." - Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author

It's how you love that matters.


Alicia Richards loved her daughter from her very first breath. Days later, when tests confirmed what Alicia already knew - that Chloe had Down syndrome - she didn't falter. Her ex-husband wanted a child who would grow to be a scholar. For Alicia, it's enough that Chloe just is.

Now twenty-five, Chloe is sweet, funny, and content. Alicia brings her to adult daycare while she teaches at a local college. One day Chloe arrives home thrumming with excitement, and says the words Alicia never anticipated. She has met someone - a young man named Thomas. Within days, Chloe and Thomas, also mentally challenged, declare themselves in love.

Alicia strives to see past her misgivings to the new possibilities opening up for her daughter. Shouldn't Chloe have the same right to love as anyone else? But there is no way to prepare for the relationship unfolding, or for the moments of heartbreak and joy ahead...

"So real, so honest... I laughed, I hoped, I cried. It's that good." - Cathy Lamb, author of The Language of Sisters
