APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
No parent ever wants to question just how far they’d go to ensure the safety of their kids—but that’s something this taut thriller forces you to consider. It introduces us to three women, each seemingly very different Catherine is in possession of an on-paper perfect domestic life—loving family, nice home—but is taken down a dangerous new path when she begins a correspondence with a convicted murderer. Kate is also tempted by the dark side to escape her no-frills, no-money family life, while Alison’s struggles with university get more complicated once a professor takes a deeper interest in her studies. Karen Osman shows splendid skill in guiding us through—very patiently—to reveal just how they’re linked.

Fantastic story, eloquently written from start to finish, telling that hell really hath no fury, like a mother scorned. Officially up there as one of my all time favourite reads.
