Product description

Review

Moving at a cracking pace, Fractured is part psychological thriller, part family drama. ... This novel will be a great book club read as it ends with more questions than answers. - Books + Publishing

Fractured is an extraordinary exploration of mental illness and grief told with great confidence and compassion. - Newtown Review of Books

Fractured is a touching, moving story about the devastating impact of postnatal psychosis on a family in its extreme manifestations. - Aussie Book Reviews (Australianbookshelf.wordpress.com)

A superb debut for Dawn Barker, Fractured is a psychologically complex, gripping story that I couldn't put down. - Bookdout.wordpress.com

Product Description

A compelling, emotional knockout debut from a brilliant new Australian author.

An unforgettable novel that brings to life a new mother’s worst fears.

Tony is worried. His wife, Anna, isn’t coping with their newborn. Anna had wanted a child so badly and, when Jack was born, they were both so happy. They’d come home from the hospital a family. Was it really only six weeks ago?

But Anna hasn’t been herself since. One moment she’s crying, the next she seems almost too positive. It must be normal with a baby, Tony thought; she’s just adjusting. He had been busy at work. It would sort itself out. But now Anna and Jack are missing. And Tony realises that something is really wrong...

What happens to this family will break your heart and leave you breathless.

Dr Dawn Barker is a Child Psychiatrist who works with families affected by mental illness. She has published non-fiction articles on parenting and child psychology for various websites and magazines. This is her heartbreaking debut novel.
