Title: Good Enough Mother, A
Authors: Thomas, Bev
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 324
Year: 2019
Language: English
Description: Dr Ruth Hartland of a London Trauma Unit is well aware of the need to keep her private and professional lives separate. However, things start to get messy when a new patient to the unit bears an uncanny resemblance to her missing teenage son, Tom. Dan is a difficult and unstable client and the events that follow serve to reinforce why some boundaries should not be crossed.

Intense and gripping, this is an emotionally charged story that reflects the author's own considerable clinical experience as a psychologist and invites the reader to ponder among other things: was Ruth a good enough mother?


Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"An easy to read book that has early engagement."

"A gripping story, it was hard to put it down."

"The book is well written and intense with interesting patient-therapist interactions."

"I really enjoy a thriller and this one was good. There's also plenty to discuss."

"The author's background of clinical psychology made this a great psychological thriller."

"I think readers would have to enjoy a thriller to enjoy this one. It's not a literary read."
