no ordinary lifeSummary:

Suzanne Redfearn delivers another gripping page-turner in her latest novel, a story about a young mother’s fight to protect her children from the dangerous world of Hollywood.

Faye Martin never expected her husband to abandon her and their three children . . . or that she’d have to struggle every day to make ends meet. So when her four-year-old daughter is discovered through a YouTube video and offered a starring role on a television series, it seems like her prayers have been answered. But when the reality of their new life settles in, Faye realizes that fame and fortune don’t come without a price. In a world where everyone is an actor and every move is scrutinized by millions, it’s impossible to know whom to trust, and Faye finds herself utterly alone in her struggle to save her family.

Emotionally riveting and insightful, NO ORDINARY LIFE is an unforgettable novel about the preciousness of childhood and the difficult choices a mother needs to make in order to protect this fragile time in her children’s lives.


Wow. This book was like a watching a train wreck. But I truly mean that in the best way, given that my Kindle was glued to my hand the entire time I was reading. Redfearn writes with the ability to suck readers in and keep them in a hold until we are at the end, and even then, the characters and their stories stay on the mind. There were unbelievable moments, touching moments, infuriating scenes and oh-my-word-i-don’t-think-I’m-breathing scenes. The celebrity world is one that fascinates so many people (yours truly included) and to get this look at the behind the scenes of what can truly happen was incredibly enticing to read. But at the core of it all is a story about a mother, and the lengths she will go to protect her children. A powerful read, and one for your must-read list.
