This weeks book club pick is psychological thriller, The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry (my review of another of her books Saving Noah can be found here on the blog)
This book will not be for everyone, fair warning!
This book focuses on married couple Christopher and Hannah who work in a hospital. When an abandoned child, Janie, is brought into the hospital, Christopher instantly bonds with her and he and Hannah take her home. Janie bonds with Christopher instantly, but as Hannah looks on she becomes wary of Janie and the distance she’s creating between her and her husband. This book is dark, unsettling and creepy and I absolutely loved it!
As a side note, if you’ve read any of this authors work before, you know what to expect. If you haven’t there is disturbing and unsettling parts to this which may be upsetting to some people. I personally love this author (though I wouldn’t read two of her books back to back as I need a little light reading in between!)
