The book centers around two law partners who specialize in adoption law and their journey to help keep a two year old little boy with the family who adopted him two years previously when his biological father comes into the picture demanding access to the son he's never me nor taken care of. Luckily for the Janus family who adopted the little boy they come across Georgie and Dru who will do anything and everything within their legal powers to help the Janus family.
This was a really well written novel. For me there were so many emotions involved in this book. I think the author did a spectacular job capturing the emotions of her characters. Their ups and downs really got to me and the amount of passion the characters had for each other, and the situation at hand was very powerful and extremely moving. In a couple spots in the book I even had a couple of tears due to the scenes in the book.
I was really impressed with this novel. The characters were well thought out and I believe that they're very life like. I could envision the characters being real people because they were so detailed I couldn't help but enjoy them.
I also thought that the overall plot of the book was well done. As with the characters the concept of the book was very real to me. I really can see a situation such as this happening the way it did in the book and it takes real talent for an author to make characters and the plot of the novel so real to the audience and it is a gift this reader was happy to receive.
If you're in the market looking for wonderfully emotional, powerful and passionate book I urge you to look into getting yourself a copy of this novel as soon as you can. The characters are endearing and the story line is addictive. I for one couldn't wait to see how it turned out and stayed up late into the night reading Intimate Strangers more than once. This would be a great book for those out there who like Women's Fiction/Chick Lit.
