When baby Oliver breaks his arm, no-one can (or will) say how it happened.
His mother is exhausted.
His father is angry.
His older sister is resentful.
And they all have something to hide. – Goodreads.com
I received this book free from the publisher via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
When I first looked at the blurb for this book I expected a thriller of sorts, some sort of hidden agenda, big twist or serious crime. What I found was completely different but just as satisfying.
Hush Little Baby is well paced and flows well. I enjoyed the different perspectives in the novel, there was not a single character I didn’t want to hear from. I didn’t particularly “like” the husband/dad but I did appreciate that he was a very “real” character, flawed and with opinions I didn’t agree with but a very interesting story.
All the characters experience immense personal growth and growth in their personal relationships which I absolutely loved.
Slight spoilers below, just a warning about very confronting themes!
