I’m thrilled to be taking part in today’s cover reveal for The Push, which is the lead debut of 2021 described as a “thrilling, astonishing and heart-pounding novel about motherhood, obsession and the terrible price of unconditional love.” This one sounds fantastic and has been added to my 2021 list of Emma’s Anticipated Treasures.
What if your experience of motherhood was nothing like what you hoped for – but everything you always feared?
‘The women in this family, we’re different . . .’
The arrival of baby Violet was meant to be the happiest day of my life.
It was meant to be a fresh start.
But as soon as I held her in my arms I knew something wasn’t right. I have always known that the women in my family aren’t meant to be mothers.
My husband Fox says I’m imagining it. He tells me I’m nothing like my own mother, and that Violet is the sweetest child.
But she’s different with me. Something feels very wrong.
Is it her? Or is it me?
Is she the monster? Or am I?
The Push is a heart-pounding exploration of motherhood, obsession and the terrible price of unconditional love.
