      3.5 STARS I was in the minority last year when Fiona Barton s The Widow was published I didn t dislike it, but I felt it was another case of the media hyping up a book to unrealistic expectations and touting a killer twist that wasn t there None of this is the author s fault it was simply a mismatching of book to reader When I saw The Child being promoted in a similar form this year, I decided to shut my eyes, close my ears, and go in blind I avoided all reviews, spoilers, media packets, etc bec [...]

      With a very intriguing start The Child by Fiona Barton is one of those books you won t be able to put down until your curiosity has been sated.This is an excellent example of a slow burning, suspenseful psychological thriller with an ending that I didn t see coming and was completely unexpected.Baby Alice Irving goes missing from her maternity crib in hospital in 1970 Forty two years later a baby s skeleton is found by workmen on a building site in Howard Street Alice s mother, Angela wants to b [...]

      A traveling sister read with my Canadian sisters Norma and Brenda.This is one of my favorite styles of books Multiple stories running parallel to one another until at some point they converge in an amazing, unpredictable way This one absolutely lives up to that It s told from the POV of three separate women You know they re going to cross paths in some just don t know when or how That s the beauty of this book Kept me on my toes and in the dark throughout most If it wasn t for my sist [...]

      The Child by Fiona Barton is a 2017 Berkley publication Many of us who read The Widow have been eagerly anticipating Fiona Barton s next book.This novel centers on a missing child, in a way, but is character driven, in my opinion.The atmosphere here is suspenseful, loaded with heavy emotions, and addictively readable I couldn t put it down The short chapters, which normally, is a huge pet peeve of mine, worked in this case, keeping the pacing brisk and the alternate perspectives fresh.This revi [...]

      I really enjoyed the Widow by Fiona Barton, so I was looking forward to her next mystery And I have no complaints If not quite as good, it was still a very enjoyable mystery that I can heartily recommend This is a fast paced mystery told from the perspective of four different women Short punchy chapters keep this book moving right along At first I was worried about keeping the women straight, but no problems there Kate is a reporter who zeros in on the story of a baby s skeleton found at the sit [...]

      I absolutely adored Fiona Barton s debut novel, The Widow, so I was all too eager to get my little hands on this one when I heard about The Child Of course, that s the problem with not reading blindly, isn t it with already being familiar with an author s previous works you go in with expectations, undoubtedly heightening your expectations on the author, and it doesn t always pan out When that happens, those reads seem to fall harder than if you d never met their predecessors in the first place [...]

      Intriguing, disturbing, and gritty This is a character driven psychological thriller that reminds us that secrets from the past often find their way to the surface no matter how well they are hidden or buried.It is, ultimately, a story about abuse, neglect, manipulation, sexual deviance, deception, heartbreak, lies and familial dynamics.The writing is suspenseful and twisty The characters are multi layered, flawed and vulnerable And the plot, although a little slow in the first half of the novel [...]

      Check out my GIVEAWAY for this book at Lit Wit Wine Dine.The Child was a quick and enjoyable read from start to finish It s told from the perspective of four different woman and differs somewhat from many multiple perspective books in that only one is narrated in the first person This gives the book a bit of an unreliable narrator feel, which is something I loved.The characters are well thought out The author gave just enough to make me feel that I knew them, while holding back enough to make me [...]
