The New York Times Bestseller, Not My Daughter

Not My Daughter, the new novel from bestselling author Barbara Delinsky is a thought-provoking tale you won’t want to miss.

When Susan Tate’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Lily, announces she is pregnant, Susan is stunned. A single mother, she has struggled to do everything right. She sees the pregnancy as an unconceivable tragedy both for Lily and herself. Then comes word of two more pregnancies among other high school juniors who happen to be Lily’s best friends. The town turns to talk of a pact. As fingers start pointing, the emotional ties between mothers and daughters are stretched to breaking in an emotionally wrenching story of love and forgiveness.

“A first-rate storyteller.” —The Boston Globe

“Delinsky delves deeper into the human heart and spirit with each new novel.” —Cincinnati Inquirer
