Good mother or bad … Who decides?
Kate knows her husband’s death has made her more protective of her daughter, but she’s not going to apologise for it.
Madeleine feels there’s no such thing as a perfect mother and while her parenting style may be controversial – particularly her decision not to vaccinate her kids – she knows everyone’s just doing their best.
But when Madeleine makes a fateful decision that upends her own family, and has devastating consequences for Kate, suddenly the world is lining up to vilify her. Now she must defend every parental choice she’s ever made…
Why is she accused of being a terrible mother when all she did was try to keep her children safe?
A stunning, addictive and powerful book club read that explores every mother’s worst fear.
