Mary Fahey By MaryFahey Completed

Donna Waldron thinks its love at first sight but is badly let down. Dr Ryan Kennedy is only amusing  himself during boring workplace training. Heartbroken, she doesn't notice her pregnancy until seven months and believes her lack of prenatal care caused her son's cleft lip and palate.
  
While waiting for a plane, Ryan sees a newspaper photo of the first New Year's Day baby, who has the rare cleft lip and palate he survived. Medical secretary Donna didn't contact him so his resemblance to her child must be co-incidental. With this self centred reasoning, he travels abroad. 
  
Nine months later, Ryan reappears, accepts Liam as his child and invites them to move into his house until after Liam's essential surgery. However, his detached behaviour suggests he is hiding secrets so Donna can't afford to trust him or see a future together again.

Sounds interesting - I love that you choose to base your books on topics not many people dare approach. To me a cleft lip is nothing to be ashamed of but you rarely see it mention in popular fiction - keep writing :)
