The Child Reviews

  • Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews



    An unsolved mystery resurfaced when a baby's skeleton was found at a building site.

    Along with the skeleton, three main characters emerge too. Kate is a reporter investigating the story. Emma is a nervous adult who became intrigued as well as possessed when she sees the story of the baby. Angela is the mother whose baby disappeared more than 40 years ago never to be found.

    THE CHILD took a while to get interesting simply because it was a bit slow, and there were too many characters thrown in. I wa

    I really enjoyed the Widow by Fiona Barton, so I was looking forward to her next mystery. And I have no complaints. If not quite as good, it was still a very enjoyable mystery that I can heartily recommend.

    This is a fast paced mystery told from the perspective of four different women. Short punchy chapters keep this book moving right along. At first I was worried about keeping the women straight, but no problems there. Kate is a reporter who zeros in on the story of a baby’s skeleton found at t

    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 mismatching of book to reader. When I saw The Child being promoted in a similar form this year, I decided to shut my eyes, close my ears, and go in blind. I avoided all reviews, spoilers, media packets, et

    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 separate women. You know they’re going to cross paths in some manner….you just don't know when or how. That's the beauty of this book! Kept me on my toes and in the dark throughout most. If it wasn't for
