Book Review - The Nursery by Sue Watson

The Nursery

The Nursery by Sue Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 Synopsis: Then: Morning light shines into the nursery, casting shadows across the pale pink walls and wooden cot in the middle of the room. She opens the door expecting to hear the soft coo of her daughter Sofia stretching herself awake. But the room is silent. The cot is empty. Her little girl has vanished…

Now: Twelve years have passed, but Emily will never forget the night her life changed forever and she’s happy to have her daughter back beside her. A teenager now, Sofia, who was once a star student, is getting into trouble at school and she’s started asking questions about when she was a baby, but Emily can’t tell her what really happened the night she went missing. Nobody would understand why Emily did what she did, and if anyone ever found out, she could lose her daughter forever.

My Thoughts: Oh wow what a page turner this was! I thought I had it all figured out but the twists kept coming right up until the end which was a jaw dropper for me!

This is a tale of not knowing who is a friend or foe, the usual teenager growing up drama, and a mother desperately trying to keep a secret and protect her child in the process. There was not a dull moment in the story at all and oh my gosh that ending...... WOW!

There were times I wanted to yell at Sophia to listen to her mother before she got hurt...listening to folks on the internet. She was quite snotty at times to her mom and I felt so badly for Emily because even though she was keeping things/secrets from her daughter it was purely out of love.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.
