WOW!!! I did not see that coming.
I enjoyed this book the story seems all normal and quite uneventful until a certain point and then I was left with my mouth open. I actually had my hand over my mouth as it took me that much by surprise. I didn't realise that I was that emotionally engaged in the story. This is a must read if you like a good twist at the end of a book.
I also loved how Australian this was and it was then easy to relate to.
My first book of K. Rimmer's, and I thought it was going to be like a few other books out now-a-days; had the feeling of 'Girl on a Train' to begin with. However, I prefer this story much more.
I continued on and I was greatly surprised by the well written plot and twist. All neatly interwoven, the characters you either loved greatly, or despised intensely because of the depth that was given to them.
I look forward to reading more of Kelly's stories, and wouldn't be surprised if this became a movie.
You've done it again Kelly Rimmer! Once again I just could not walk away from your latest masterpiece for a moment! A Mother's Confession was unbelievable... a gripping novel with a huge curveball that I wouldn't have expected for a second! Loved every little bit!
"Seeing what we want to see."
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.
"Ending I Never Saw Coming"
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.
"Wow! Just wow!"
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.
What an amazing story. Had me drawn in from the very beginning. I couldn't stop listening.
