Kirkus Reviews recently listed KATE AND THE KID among the top Indie books for 2016. Its review stated that “[t]his engrossing romantic adventure combines mystery and psychological drama in an intricate study of family relationships, economic class, and child abuse, the sometimes-casual portrayal of which is disturbing.” Kirkus summed the book up as “[a]n absorbing story about both the supportive and destructive aspects of family entanglements.” This novel also involves a topic of great concern today: child abuse. It won a silver medal from Readers’ Favorite among books dealing with social issues. In addition, KATE treats the topic in a way that grips the heart. Again, in the words of a reviewer, “[t]his novel was completely engrossing. Anne Rothman-Hicks and Kenneth Hicks created characters who were completely relatable but still surprising. I loved Kate and Jenny and really wanted everything to work out for both of them – to the point that they were on my mind even when I wasn’t reading the book.”
