This 'I-hate-to-pause-and-put-this-down' book captures the daily life of one harried mother and interjects a creeping mystery that makes the reader want to read faster and faster until everything is ultimately resolved! Celia Fremlin, the author, does an outstanding job of capturing the thoughts, feelings, and actions of her characters...they are, quite frankly, the people next door and YOURSELF.
