First-time novelist Abbie Taylor has written a suspensful story with plenty of twists and lots of action. As a doctor, she has probably seen many patients just like Emma - and hopefully is better at dispensing sympathy and diagnosing post-natal depression than Emma's doctors are. She tells Emma's story with such empathy that I felt I was there with her, experiencing her loneliness and helplessness, her miserable surroundings her constant doubting of herself as a good mother and the small joys of her life. I'm looking forward to Taylor's next book.
Rating - I give this 4/5
