Angela was just a baby when her mum left her for the last time, and a children’s home is no place to grow up.
The home’s manager Ray takes the girls off to his ‘den’ in the garden and the littlies come back crying, and Ray’s wife Kath has special wooden spoons which she saves for beating any of the children who dare to misbehave.
So, when wealthy couple James and Rosemary come to choose a child to adopt, Angela is desperate to escape.
But the scars of her childhood remain, and when Angela’s search for her birth mother Evelyn is successful, their reunion is no fairy tale.
Soon strange and sinister events start to unfold, and Evelyn fears she may not survive her daughter’s return…
The Home is another devastating psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling The Good Mother.
I really enjoyed this story, it had great drama and suspense that built up in the book to a really good ending!
The pace was spot on and I liked the writing style, it was great for the story and gave it an added edge.
I thought that the characters were well developed and they worked really well with the plot to make this one a thoroughly enjoyed psychological thriller!
Four stars from me, I really enjoyed it!
