Publisher's Summary

From the queen of white-knuckle suspense and searing family drama comes a harrowing glimpse into the real world behind the headlines. This is a novel of immense power and compassion - one that will move all who listen to it.
Tina is a young woman hiding from her grief on the streets of the Cross. On a cold night in the middle of winter, she breaks all her own rules when she agrees to go home with a customer. What she finds in his house will change her life forever.
Across the country Sarah and Doug are trapped in limbo, struggling to accept the loss that now governs their lives. Pete is the local policeman who feels like he is watching the slow death of his own family.
Everyday brings a fresh hell for each of them. Told from the alternating points of view of Tina, Sarah, Doug, and Pete, The Boy Under the Table is gritty, shocking, moving and, ultimately, filled with hope.

Great book by Nicole Trope worth going down under

What made the experience of listening to The Boy Under the Table the most enjoyable?

The lack of traditional structure; however, at one point this did lead to a two hour chapter. I'm not sure how much of this was down to the audio set up.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boy Under the Table?

The closing scenes were done well on an emotional level.

Which character – as performed by Susan Strafford – was your favourite?

Susan Strafford's accent added to the authentic tone, but there was no particular one character that stood out.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Due to the nature of the plot line it was difficult not to have an emotional reaction to this book and at sometimes it was hard to listen to.

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the level of detail involved in Tina's character - it made you really feel for her.
