Product description

Review

Each character is brilliantly drawn, and the book delivers surprise after surprise’ -- Claire Fuller, author of Bitter Orange

‘Absolutely brilliant; an emotionally devastating story, brave and honest’ -- Emma Curtis, author of One Little Mistake

‘Compelling, beautifully written, so perceptive and emotionally devastating. Like Anatomy of a Scandal, it feels like an important book as well as a brilliant read’ -- Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party

‘Vaughan explores the darker impulses of motherhood - the fear, fury and despair; the frantic juggling, loss of control and exhaustion - and of course the overwhelming love. Refreshingly assured and punchy writing that is sure to hit a nerve’  -- Lucy Atkins

'A brilliant storyteller, Vaughan serves up every mother’s nightmare with consummate skill and a big heart. Clever. Totally compelling. Impossible to put down’  -- Eve Chase, author of Black Rabbit Hall

‘I loved it and didn’t want to put it down. So, so good on motherhood and friendship’ -- Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request

'A true psychological thriller shows us, as all the best ones do, that the scariest place is not the dark alleyway but inside the pathways of our own minds. Compelling…and important’  -- Araminta Hall, author of Our Kind of Cruelty

‘An immaculately researched and compelling story about the devastating fall out from one mistake’ -- Jane Shemilt, author of The Playground

'Sarah Vaughan turns her pin-sharp attentions to the blame game that is early parenthood, raising the stakes to truly fearful levels. This tense, absorbing read will have parents – in fact, all readers – turning the pages deep into the night'  -- Louise Candlish, author of Those People

‘Sarah’s writing is so impressive and skilful – the book is gripping, meticulous, and touches the raw nerves of parenthood’ -- Terry Stiastny, author of Conflicts of Interest
