Four stars for a book of surprises. And the biggest surprise is saved for the end of the book. My heart and soul ached while reading A Mother's Confession, realizing I know people who are so similar to each of the characters. I found that scary while fearing there were times I should have spoken up. Seems each main character had good and bad traits, and I found myself understanding why. I recommend this book for almost everyone.
The twist of the story surprised me. the narration at times was very whiney and annoying, but also very appropriate to the character being portrayed. I think the narration really contributed to a character in really did not like.
This book really hit home. I was involved in an abusive relationship, though no where as severe as this one. I could really relate to the struggles to try to make sense of a relationship that continued to go wrong regardless of what you did. I will listen to this one again, and probably again. Should I suspect someone is in an abusive relationship, I will give them this book. Excellent story and excellent narrator. Thanks, Audible!
"A beautiful, yet heart breaking read"
Words are difficult to express how I feel right at this moment. Such a beautifully written yet heart breaking read. A thought provoking book that touched my heart - silent tears rolled down my cheeks as I listened to the reality that was Olivia and Zoe's lives. A must read for every woman - a book that'll make you thankful for the lives we live, or a book that may just give you strength to live better lives for yourselves. Thank you so much @bookouture and Kelly Rimmer for this beautiful book.
