Hush Little Baby by Suzanne Redfearn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This has been a sheer treat and delight to read.
A friend recommended this book and I'd like to thank her for that. She even encouraged me to bump it up my list of reads.
In an abusive relationship along with having two children too is very hard to make decisions to leave. But what if your husband was a doting Father, worked in the Police force and was highly respected? Friends, family? And what if you think you are a hopeless Mother, not getting anything right? It just goes to show, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, and what appears to be fine, just may not be.
This book is much more than this though, throw in a lover, pregnancy, death, murder and cancer and you have opened lots of plots.
I would highly encourage you to read this. Gripping story from beginning to end.

If I stay, he will kill me. If I leave, he'll destroy Addie and Drew.
Jillian Kane appears to have it all - a successful career, a gorgeous home, a loving husband, and two wonderful children. The reality behind closed doors is something else entirely. For nine years, she has hid the bruises and the truth of her abusive marriage in order to protect Addie and Drew, knowing, if she left, Gordon would destroy her-destroy them.
When, in an act of desperation, she flees, her worst nightmare is realized, and she finds herself on the run with her two young children, no money, and no plan. With Gordon in hot pursuit, there is only one inescapable certainty: No matter where she goes, he will find her. Kill her. And take her children.
A riveting page-turner, HUSH LITTLE BABY exposes the shame and terror of domestic violence as well as the disturbing role manipulation and sabotage can play in the high-stakes game of child custody. Suspenseful and unforgettably moving, it's a novel about the unbreakable bonds of family and the astounding, terrifying devotion of a mother's love
