3.5 STARS I was in the minority last year when Fiona Barton’s The Widow was published; I didn’t dislike it, but I felt it was another case of the media hyping up a book to unrealistic expectations and touting a killer twist that wasn’t there. None of this is the author’s fault; it was simply a mi...

With a very intriguing start "The Child" by Fiona Barton is one of those books you won't be able to put down until your curiosity has been sated.

A traveling sister read with my Canadian sisters Norma and Brenda. This is one of my favorite styles of books. Multiple stories running parallel to one another until at some point they converge in an amazing, unpredictable way. This one absolutely lives up to that! It’s told from the POV of three...

The Child' by Fiona Barton is a 2017 Berkley publication. Many of us who read “The Widow” have been eagerly anticipating Fiona Barton’s next book. This novel centers on a missing child, in a way, but is more character driven, in my opinion. The atmosphere here is suspenseful, loaded with heavy emot...

3.5 I had recently taken a break from thrillers, they had all started to blend together. Never read this authors first book either, but something about this book, the beautiful blue cover and the synopsis, enticed me enough to read. When an old building is being demolished the bones of a newborn...

THE CHILD is an intriguing mystery surrounding the discovery of a decades old baby skeleton at a construction site. Given the premise, I figured it would also be an emotional read, and it was that. The story is told in alternating perspectives of four women, the investigative reporter (who we fir...

The author Fiona Barton delivers again! Kate Waters is a journalist and the main character in this novel. She was also a character on the author's previous novel The Widow but you do not need to read it to be able to enjoy this book because the cases are completely unrelated. Ok, back to the story....

The Child by Fiona Barton is a brand new novel of twisting psychological suspense from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Widow. While I enjoyed he Widow, I liked this one much better, as I found the characters more fully developed in The Child. Many twists and turns with a surprise...
