Publisher's Summary

Daniel is my son. He has always been mine. And he always will be.

On some level deep inside, Laura Bateman knows something is wrong. That her relationship with her son is not what it should be. That it is based on lies.

But bad things have happened to Laura. Things that change a person. Forever.

For twenty-six-year-old Daniel, the discovery that his mother is not who he thought comes close to destroying him. As his world turns upside down, he searches for sanity in the madness that has become his life. Daniel is left with nothing but questions. Why did Laura do something so terrible? Can he move past the demons of his childhood?

And the biggest question of all: can he ever forgive Laura?

    "Terrible narration, fairly good story"

    Such a shame that the female narrator was so breathy and seemed to have strange intonation.
    The story was quite good and the male narrator was better, but for me the irritation of the female chapters read in such an unusual style was just too off putting.

    "His Kidnapper's SHoes"

    It has been quite a while since I have been totally enthralled in a book. I have enjoyed every word, sentence and chapter of this book. It addresses the complexity of people's life's, how those who draw the short straws, deal with great suffering and how this affects their mental capabilities, in continuing to live a day to day existence. Where one mistake has catastrophic consequences. But also this book addresses, how ones begins to look beyond the stereotype label attached to a person. It's so easy to condemn a fellow man. But deep understanding and compassion brings a healing presence to all.

    "Challenging topics in a moving story"

    The female narration was bizarre.It was a sing song like crescendo of intonation. Very irritating and gaspy, but worth suffering for the sake of the book. The male narration was a youthful voice , very nasal but endearing. the story was full of chance meetings and coincidence but the topics were sad and moving. The last chapter was heart breaking. Overall a good book. Glad I persevered over the narration.

    "Good story, shame about narrators "

    I was distracted throughout by the very breathy delivery of the female and the wooden delivery of the male narrators. Could have been so much better

    "Bad narration and boring storyline"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Typical psychotic kidnapper and traumatized adult son. Crass language, and nothing uniquely drawing. I wasted three hours.

    "Slightly demented"

    This story was gripping but pretty sick! Yes, the world is a tough place and people go through bad things, but so we need so many details?
