Melanie Golding ☆ 1 REVIEW

FREE READ Í BJWP.CO.UK ☆ Melanie Golding REVIEW ✓ Little Darlings “Mother knows best” takes on a sinister new meaning in this unsettling thriller perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman and Grimms’ Fairy TalesEveryone says Lauren Tranter is exhausted that she needs rest And they’re right; with newborn twins Morgan and Riley she’s never been tired in her life But she knows what she saw that night in her hospital room a woman tried to take her babies and replace them w. How could her brain conjure something that seemed so real something laden with so much horrifying detail and yet there be nothing at all This book is seriously creepy creative and sad I think it s a bit misleading that it has found its way to the mysterythriller section when it is mostly a contemporary with elements or suggestions of magical realism But either way it s a moving frightening psychological portrait of new motherhood set in the Peak DistrictLittle Darlings is inspired by the Welsh fairy tale A Brewery of Eggshells about a woman with newborn twins who are swapped with changelings Lauren Tranter has just given birth to two beautiful twin boys who uickly become her whole world When a disheveled woman appears on the maternity ward and threatens to swap them with her own sons she is rightfully terrified and will do anything to protect her babiesLauren is tired and stressed like all new mothers but she knows the woman is real Even though the doctors and the police and her husband keep telling her that she is seeing things that she needs help she knows the truth When her babies go missing one day a frantic search begins and they are uickly found seemingly unharmed But Lauren knows the truth about that too these babies are not the children she lostEveryone wants to dismiss her as mentally ill except Detective Sergeant Joanna Harper who has her own reasons for believing Lauren Against the wishes of her superiors Harper opens her own investigation into what really happenedI think the police procedural aspects are the weakest part of the novel Little Darlings is at its strongest when hovering somewhere between a portrait of postpartum depression and a dark sinister fairy tale I can speak from experience when I say depression can be terrifying And just like in this novel you can never uite be sure what is a legitimate feeling and what is an exaggerated response brought on by your mental state these two often overlapAfter the birth of my first child I found myself crying uncontrollably I was exhausted confused and afraid of absolutely everything On top of the hormonal crash that comes after giving birth for most people there s also the pure terror of being wholly responsible for someone else s wellbeing for the first time in your life Unless you were previously a carer the emotional shift that comes with knowing the responsibility falls entirely on you changes you beyond beliefI think this book captures all that Maybe the woman is real and this is a dark fairy tale and maybe she is not and this is just a book about a woman struggling with mental illness But it actually doesn t matter that much The fear of getting it wrong messing up of losing your baby of not being a good mother all of that is very real either way I found it highly effectiveCW DepressionBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
