Another Man's Son by Katherine Stone is an emotional, compelling journey into the delicate nature of the human condition. The characters are very much human, imperfect, damaged, and it is with delicate approach that they each discover love.

The story is wrought with feelings of loss, grief and pain but with the promise of happiness. For Kathleen Cahill, Ian Collier and Sam Collier, love is an emotion foreign to them, both in reception and possession. From personal experience Kathleen hides her tu...more

This was a very interesting book with several subplots. I liked the characters and writing style, and the book kept my interest with no dull moments. There were also some surprises that increased the interest factor of the book. The summary on the book 's cover was not very accurate, however. I had read more than 200 pages before Ian died, and it was later on when Sam came and even before Kathleen moved into the house. Sam and Kathleen's falling into bed together the night they met and the day t...more

Ian and Kathleen have a very long platonic relationship which ends in them attempting marriage. Meanwhile, Ian has been investigating Kathleen's mother's...more

The only thing keeping this a four-star book was the rushed love affair of Kathleen and Sam. The build-up of the story and characters was wonderful. The drama was sweeping and intense. I felt so much for each of them that when Kathleen and Sam "fell in love" I questioned how I missed that. It happened WAY too fast and it didn't make much sense. I would have liked to have experienced more of Kathleen's awakening sexuality when she discovered a different kind of love with Sam. Too much was missin...more

Well, this story kept my interest for the first half, and I got thru till the last chapter, then it was obvious what the ending would be.
Not the best I ever read.

A very good book,little hard to follow in places, but good book overall.

A little hurried. I think this could have been a much stronger story had the characters been given time to develop more. I hate when characters change too fast without any real transition. That happend alot in this book. I think also a bit more background would have benefited the story. She tried to hint at things but never really developed her thoughts. Not graphic, which I appreciate. All graphic sex does is cheapen the story. All in all not bad.

I wanted to like the book but couldn't. The story was too wierd and too soap operaish. Sam hops into bed with Kathleen, falls madly in love with her after knowing her for about a week (the whole time, she was his "father"'s fiancee.

This book had so many subplots that it was a little hard to follow, but, well worth the trip.
