Brilliant story

This story was sad funny and frustrating all at the same time. You could feel the mothers sadness at her lack of bonding with her baby when I
everyone else seemed to achieve it effortlessly. The twist in the tail was unexpected but welcome

Heartbreaking but a great listen

If I’m honest I found Matt and Jessica’s romance sickly at the start but it only serves to juxtapose what happens later. I think this should be read by anyone whose thinking of having a baby. Not to scare them but to try and let them know that if they start to feel way off kilter after the birth of their baby, not to feel ashamed about saying how they feel and getting professional help for everyone’s sake. I think most if not all new mums struggle with the huge change in their life’s but jess really is very ill. The audio really brought the story to life for me. After listening to it I had to go and watch my baby girl sleeping and cherished her all the more. Thanks for shining a light on a topic that isn’t written about enough in fiction. Very happy the story ended with hope and love.
