The Stranger in My Home is the utterly compelling new contemporary novel from Adele Parks, Sunday Times best-selling author of The State We're In, sure to move, grip and delight her fans along with readers of Liane Moriarty, Jane Shemilt and Lisa Jewell.

When you have everything you dreamed of, there is everything to lose.

Alison is lucky, and she knows it. She has the life she always craved, including a happy home with Jeff and their brilliant, vivacious teenage daughter, Katherine - the absolute centre of Alison's world. Then a knock at the door ends life as they know it.

Fifteen years ago someone else took Alison's baby from the hospital. And now Alison is facing the unthinkable. Her daughter belongs to someone else. What would you do if you discovered your beloved child is not yours?

    Story
    "On and on and on. !!!"

    This book just goes on and on and on and on about the most mind numbing inconsequential detail. It's like a drone that doesn't stop.The actual story could be good,but the book should be about 2 hundred page shorter.ive never experienced this kind of ridiculous detail,ever. The sort of detail that has nothing to do with the story. ie. Talking about radio 1 djs endless rubbish about hairstyles. Random and bizarre. Boring twoddle

    "Disappointing"

    The beginning of the story was quite promising but it got worse and worse. I kept persevering for the big twist, but wish I hadn't. Probably the worse book I have downloaded

    "Enjoyable storyline but badly researched"

    I really enjoyed this book, but it was ruined by totally incorrect information regarding BRCA mutations. The 15 year old Katherine was tested for a BRCA mutation. Firstly under 18's aren't allowed to be tested as it isn't seen as ethical, and secondly they would have asked for the actual mutation her birth mother had, not just blindly test for a a mutation in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene. The Narrator also wrongly spelled the letters out rather that pronounce it 'bracka' This kind of information could be easily obtained by a quick google!
