A new thought-provoking novel exploring the complexity of motherhood and all that connects and disconnects us.
You think you know her…but look a little closer.
She is a stay-at-home mother-of-three with boundless reserves of patience, energy, and love. After being friends for a decade, this is how Liz sees Jess.
Then one moment changes everything.
Dark thoughts and carefully guarded secrets surface—and Liz is left questioning everything she thought she knew about her friend, and about herself. The truth can’t come soon enough.
This is a very a very relatable read – it will make your skin prickle with recognition; uncomfortable, yes – maybe you have been (in various degrees) on one or the other “side” of the issues raised in this provocative read. There is something here for all to think about, take away and learn from.
This is a great read; complex, engaging and thought provoking, intelligent.
I do like that premise, Carol – ‘You think you know someone, but…’ There’s so much potential with that sort of story. The characters really sound very interesting, too, and multidimensional. And I was thinking as I read your post how often people’s lives look perfect from the outside, but it’s quite a different story when you look closely…
You’ve got the nail on the head Margot – what we think, how we react, how we should react .. it has a lot of depth and interest here – and a bit of a mystery. Very relatable
