A twisty psychological suspense about five mothers who share a devastating secret... the British Big Little Lies
'Gripping, tense, taut and brilliant. You'll be begging your friends to read it so you can discuss it over and over again.' - Rebecca Reid, Grazia
They meet at their NCT Group. The only thing they have in common is they're all pregnant.
Three years later, they are all good friends. Aren't they?
One Missing Husband.
Now the police have come knocking. Someone knows something.
And the trouble with secrets is that someone always tells.
For fans of Big Little Lies, The Rumour and I Invited Her In, this is first class psychological suspense from the critically acclaimed Sarah J Naughton.
The Mothers grips like a vice, with characters which leap from the page. Naughton's depiction of motherhood from different perspectives is as refreshing as it is evocative.
Sarah J Naughton grew up in Dorset, on a diet of tales of imperiled heroines and wolves in disguise. As an adult her reading matter changed but those dark fairytales had deep roots. Her debut children's thriller, THE HANGED MAN RISES, featured a fiend from beyond the grave menacing the streets of Victorian London, and was shortlisted for the 2013 Costa award. THE MOTHERS is her third psychological thriller for adults.
