    "“The Perfect Mother” or “Postcards from Berlin”"

    I wish I understood why this book has two titles! I think “The Perfect Mother” is the most appropriate.

    I enjoyed the story, but one thing bothered me: the way the doctors completely dismissed the mother and practically jumped on the verdict of Münchhausen by Proxy. It was like a flash-diagnosis made on the fly with no real consideration of the facts. It felt like they just concluded it overnight and the story lost a bit of credibility for me at that point.

    Perhaps the author evoked this on purpose so we could feel as stunned and bamboozled as the mother? Maybe. I just found it too fast to be believable.
