That Girl From Nowhere by Dorothy Koomson. Review

This is the story about a woman called Clemency Smittson , sometimes known as Smitty or Clem by friends and family. Clem was adopted by two loving people and had a wonderful upbringing with them but after a major life event she decides to move away for an exciting fresh start and this is where all the story begins to come together. Clem makes jewellery,  and her favourite part is making it from someone's old jewelry , through a chance meeting with someone through her business her family life is about to come to the forefront of her life changing it forever. The story covers many topics...betrayal, bullying, adoption , love ,secrets and it does each incredibly well. 
I recommend this to anyone adopted or who has adopted children as I am adopted and I found this authors way of capturing the feelings and emotions you go through to be very true to life and the story delicately told . I will certainly be reading more by this author in the future, without a doubt!

I received this book for review from the lovely people over at
