                 "ABOUT THE BOOK"

Bridget has given up her career as an attorney to raise her daughter, joining a cadre of stay-at-home mothers seeking fulfillment in a quiet suburb. But for Bridget, some crucial part of the exchange is absent: Something she loves and needs. And now a terrifying presence has entered her home; only nobody but Bridget can feel it.

On a farm in 1902, a young city bride takes a farmer husband. The marriage bed will become both crucible and anvil as Rebecca first allows, then negates, the powerful erotic connection between them. She turns her back on John to give all her love to their child. Much will occur in this cold house, none of it good.

                       "MY REVIEW"
I adore Siobhan Adcock as a author. Her book was amazing. I was first interested when I was in a live chat with the author on the Penguin website. This book was just like a movie called "Lise My Mother Told Me" because of the drama and suspense that happened. Reading the first few pages and chapters were alright be getting into the middle is where its at. I love that there were two different stories to learn and know about. Cover (5/5). Authors writing style (4/5). Details (5/5). Over all grade (look below).
