Review:

"A comprehensive character study in postpartum depression transforms into a mother's abduction nightmare in Noonan's new novel (after The Daughter She Used to Be). Chelsea Maynard, formerly a DIY household project maven who catalogued her hands-on experiences for a magazine, sinks to new lows as an unemployed, at-home mom with a cranky newborn, Annabelle. Husband Leo Green shoulders some of the parenting duties while Chelsea's despondency grows, but is at a loss to restore his wife to the confident woman she used to be. Furthering her melancholy is the health insurance company denying claims and delaying payments for the newly struggling family. Noonan has a knack for melodramatic page-turners and doesn't disappoint, but at times a pedantic tone undermines the immediacy of Chelsea's depression, pushing the reader out of the story at the expense of detail and accuracy. Nevertheless, it's easy to empathize with Chelsea, always at the whim of her mood swings and wishing she could go back to her old life. Although a kidnapping twist halfway in feels contrived, the circumstances of the abduction and Chelsea's ongoing travails make for a readable tale. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

I highly recommend this book. I highly recommend this author. At the end of the book, there is a Q & A with the author who after her first baby, felt much the same as most new mother's do. Also, the author mentions that although this is a work of fiction, abduction and murders made her more aware of these types of cases reported in the media. She also goes on to mention two high profile celebrities who at one point 'came out' with their stories; Marie Osmond and of course, Brooke Shields. I'm sure, like me, you all read those stories, too. Without a shadow of a doubt, I know I'll be reading more of Rosalind Noonan's work.
