Beautifully poignant and utterly compelling.
The Cuckoo Sister is a heart-breaking story of post-natal depression and a mother whose struggle is completely overlooked by those around her.
Maggie’s inner torment was described so well that I could really empathise with her battle and understand the overwhelming fear that led her to make the most painful decision. But all decisions carry consequences, and the author gives us a powerful insight into the repercussions of Maggie’s actions on her family as they deal with the aftermath of her choice.
Maggie’s sister, Rose, steps in to care for her niece and nephew during Maggie’s absence. She’s simply being a good sister and aunt, isn’t she? Or is the temptation of ready-made family too much to resist?
It’s a deeply thought-provoking novel, which enables you to see all sides of the story and empathise with the impact one decision has had on everyone involved.
