Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Mine by Susi Fox, read by Ainslie McGlynn.

The baby in the cot is not your baby.

You wake up alone after an emergency caesarean, desperate to see your child. But when you are shown the small infant, a terrible thought seizes you: this baby is not mine.

They say you're delusional.

No-one believes you. Not the nurses, your father or even your own husband. They say you're confused. Dangerous.

But you're a doctor - you know how easily mistakes can be made. Or even deliberate ones.

Everyone is against you; do you trust your instincts? Or is your traumatic past clouding your judgment? You know only one thing. 

You must find your baby.

Gripping

Loved it. I was unsure about whether to believe the narrator or not. Kept me guessing until the end.

Great read

Loved the narrative, I did get a little bit Mixed up, but it kept me wanting to listen to it more and more, a bit of midnight listening

Ridiculous Premise

SPOILER ALERT


I actually thought this was half decent (if a bit dull) when I thought it was just about a woman’s emotional breakdown after giving birth in difficult circumstances. But towards the end it becomes apparent that it wasn’t that at all.

The basic plot of the book is...
Woman A gives birth.
Nurse and raped Woman B conspire to swap babies because Woman B doesn’t want her own baby.
Woman A’s baby ( now with woman B) dies.
Woman A finds out about the swap and thinks “Sof it, I’ll just keep the the woman B’s baby then and pretend it’s mine - and not give my dead baby another thought”.

Pretty sure I’ve got that right.

Oh, and let’s not forget that the baby died because the other mother didn’t wash her hands - ONCE!

Went from being a potentially worthy study of potential emotional difficulties in caesarian births to the biggest pile of ridiculous shite I can ever remember reading.
