The Good Mother

The Good Mother

If Liane Moriarty had written Friend Request . . .

‘It’s Jenna,’ Ark says. ‘She’s – ‘
His voice tears off.
‘She’s dead.’

One ordinary afternoon, Fairlie Winter receives a devastating phone call – her best friend is dead.

Jenna Rudolph was a devoted mother and wife and has left behind her young son, Henry, and her grief-stricken husband, Ark. The circumstances surrounding Jenna’s death, while tragic, seem to be clear-cut yet Fairlie can’t shake the feeling that Jenna was hiding something.

And then Fairlie receives a letter. From Jenna. Posted before she died.

The contents of that letter force Fairlie on a journey to discover the truth – a truth that she may not be ready for. Driven by her need for answers, she uncovers a horrifying past of two desperate mothers and the tragic choices they made for their children and she must ask herself, is there such a thing as loving your child too much?

Heart-breaking, tense and dramatic, The Good Mother is about the price of motherhood and the unthinkable things we do in the name of love. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty, B A Paris and Friend Request.
