A CHILD MADE TO ORDER PIOTR RYCZKO

A CHILD MADE TO ORDER PIOTR RYCZKO PAPERBACK AMAZON £7.99
When a women’s fertility rights campaigner, Marianne Stine, mysteriously disappears, it hardly reaches the news. Only investigative journalist Viola Voss, harried by the blogger’s mother, shows any interest in finding out what happened to the young woman. Yet years pass and there is no further sign of Marianne. However, on the eve of taking up a prestigious senior post in Norway’s largest newspaper, Voss is once again reminded of Marianne’s disappearance. In fact, Voss is soon presented with a tantalising clue that not only is Marianne alive, she has a healthy young child. Part of Voss’s fascination with Marianne is because they share the same rare genetic condition that would be passed on to their children. Haunted by having lost her own child due to this hereditary disease, Voss determines – against the strong wishes of her own over-powering mother – to put her new job on hold, try to find Marianne, and an explanation. Enlisting the help of an ex-police sergeant, the clues point to a fertility clinic on the outskirts of town. But this is where Voss’s problems begin. The clinic’s claim of a 100% fertility treatment success rate is beguiling and, with her inner world in turmoil, she decides to take a risk that will force her to confront her own fears, deal with her loss and decide between right and wrong.
MY REVIEW 

Gripping psychological suspense. Vlog 165th entry 2.9. 2014 Marianne suffers from mitochondrial disease. A baby could be born with nervous malfunction muscle dystrophy dementia. What makes this story heartbreaking it’s the loneliness moment in one’s life is having so much love to give and then realising that it will never be yours to give. Marianne was a public figure she was a known personality in the blogosphere. Viola worked for one of the biggest newspapers as a Middle East correspondent. Stine’s daughter, Marianne had gone missing and Viola Voss offered to help find her. And why is the police about to blow wide open a fertility clinic ? A Child Made To Order is high up on the drama!
