When Brian finds out that his wife, Diane, is pregnant, he is elated. He's been patiently waiting for twelve years to become a father. But Diane has always been nervous about having children because of her family's dark past. The timing of the pregnancy also isn't ideal - Diane has just been promoted, and Brian is being called away to open a new London office for his company.
Fast-forward one year: Being a mother has brought Diane a sense of joy that she'd never imagined and she's head over heels for her new baby, Grace. But things are far from perfect: Brian has still not returned from London, and Diane fears leaving the baby for even a moment. As unsettling changes in those around Diane began to emerge, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems.
A woman's dark past collides head-on with her mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama.

I obviously liked the write-up and reviews of this book because I bought it twice. Once for my kindle and once from Audible. I enjoyed going between the two with them syncing all the time.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. All the way through I had questions that remained unanswered and certainly never expected the ending.
Worst narration ever. Over done, over acted. Almost ruined the book for me. Story was good.
I predicted ending in first few chapters. very slow paced. almost didn't finish
Enjoyed the reading of the novel. The novel itself was good but sad. I would recommend this book .
"The build up is what keeps it from being 4 stars"
Good and the twists at the end we're really good but the build up made me think this wasn't going to be a mystery or thriller. The pacing was a bit slow.
"Couldn't stop listening"
I have recommended this book to others. The story explored all avenues of emotions, suspense, laughter, sorrow. You could actually see the events unfolding.
One of the most memorable moments was when she describes the first time she saw her daughter and the feelings she had.
