I have downloaded her "Hush Little Baby" by Joanna Barnard is a complex, cleverly woven story involving a mixture of somewhat disturbed characters. I have downloaded her other book "Precocious" and I'm looking forward to reading it soon. Apr 16, Rachel rated it really liked it. An unsettling subject to read about, but the characters and plot development are excellent. A bit of a slow burner, but it cranks up chapter by chapter.

I was so excited to read this book as I love psychological thrillers and this had been described as "The most gripping domestic suspense you'll read this year" - sorry, what?!
This was the most dull 'psychological thriller' I have ever read. It was hard work to read, but I read it in about a day just because I was so adamant that there would be a huge plot twist or something juicy. I kept reading chapter after chapter thinking, there must be something juicy happening soon! But alas, nothing exci I was so excited to read this book as I love psychological thrillers and this had been described as "The most gripping domestic suspense you'll read this year" - sorry, what?!
But alas, nothing exciting happened. There were no twists that left me gasping, or on the edge of my seat. And what other GoodReads users have described as a plot 'twist' was something so insignificant and almost certainly predictable, that the long lead-up to it was really not worth it. Mar 18, BookwormCatLady rated it liked it. This had all the ingredients for a really good read but I just didn't get on with it.
I persevered with it more through a sense of duty than my normal compulsion to pick up my book at any and every opportunity. I've seen some people have classified this as a thriller. I loved the cover, was intrigued and sucked in by the slightly vague synopsis and enjoyed the switches between the three main character's POV.

She is estranged from her Mother and keeps herself to herself. Sally and Richard do not appear to trust each other. Sally was out with colleagues on a rare evening, relaxing and drinking too much, as she was giddy with the feel of freedom. Unbeknownst, Martha is alone for part of the evening and invites schoolfriend round for a visit.
Where, then, was Richard? Richard's infidelity, once a suspicion, is out in the open. Sally's insecurities are heightened and Martha's struggle is fit in as a teenager takes a sinister turn. This is very well written and the characters well depicted.

However, the ending is a bit of a surprise. I highly recommend this emotive but well thought out storyline. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are all my own and completely unbiased. My thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity. Really enjoyed this book. Hated the husband from the off and did not get the ending I expected but a vert good read.
May 07, Joanne Robertson rated it it was amazing. I was really looking forward to reading Hush Little Baby as that blurb sounded so intriguing to me but I was concerned it was going to be a challenging topic to read about and approached it with caution. Would the theme of child abuse if that was indeed the case! Told via three viewpoints, those of Sally the mother , Richard the father and Martha the half -sister, each of them have secrets they are hiding from the rest of their family.
How did baby Oliver break his arm? Which of them knows more than they are letting on? But there is never ANY excuse for what happened to baby Oliver so for the author to actually evoke sympathetic feelings for this fragmented family shows how well crafted her storyline is. But it was tough reading at times. The involvement of Social Services had me totally on edge right from the start.
How many times as a parent do you make silly little remarks or share FB memes about your kids? I bet you will think again after this! Once social services start asking questions of Sally and Richards friends and family, little things they thought were insignificant throw away funny remarks are intricately examined under the microscope of authority.
Hush Little Baby
There are some other very topical issues tackled here too, and again they can make for uncomfortable reading at times, but the author handles them with an intelligent understanding of how these events can affect an ordinary family and how one little catalyst can cause that family to implode. My emotions were played perfectly by this well developed and observed domestic suspense and after the ending I found it difficult to turn them off.
The circumstances surrounding what happened and the outcome kept going around in my head and I was left wondering what became of the family and had so many alternative endings playing in my mind! This is a thought provoking read where you may not particularly like many of the characters but you will be able to relate to some of the situations they find themselves in and care enough to want a happy resolution for them all.
Highly recommended by me. View 2 comments. Jul 28, Rosemary Standeven rated it it was amazing. All too often in the press you hear about another battered baby, that Social Services have not gotten to in time. There is justifiable moral outrage that such a thing should happen, government enquiries, a court case, promises of change, blame apportioned to Social Services and department heads rol All too often in the press you hear about another battered baby, that Social Services have not gotten to in time.

And then the next baby dies … This book is not like that. The examining doctor ascertains that the arm is broken, in a way that is suggestive of abuse. Neither parent can explain how this has happened. Both are visibly upset. The doctor immediately alerts Social Services. There is no history of physical abuse in the family. But Social Services believe that it is better safe than sorry — and remove Oliver from his parents, to be cared for by his paternal grandparents.
He can only be seen by his parents on supervised visits. We, the public, should be applauding Social Services for such timely intervention.

But, through the book, you get to know the parents, Richard and Sally, and the older step- daughter, Martha. They all have their flaws, and are not telling everything that they know, but that does not imply guilt. You desperately want them all to be innocent of ever hurting Oliver, and from all you can see, they are. There is a constant fear, that they will never get Oliver back. Few parents ever believe that they have got parenting right all the time. There are always doubts and niggles. Probably even Dr Spock had moments of uncertainty. Supervised visits by Social Services are almost designed to introduce worries and Sally begins to distrust all her mothering instincts.
Sally, Richard and Martha each narrate chapters in turn, so you see the situation from three different points of view. Each of them becomes a fully realised and believable character. While I had so much sympathy for Sally and Martha not because of their gender , I found Richard to be rather contemptable. However, I could not see even him hurting Oliver. You slowly discover what everyone is trying to hide — but not until right at the end do you find out what really happened on that fateful night. An excellent domestic drama, dealing with the repercussions of suspected — and actual — child abuse and exploitation, of teenage angst and self-harm, with an added dose of suspense that turns it into a slow boiling thriller.
