What Kelli is Reading: The Perfect Child

Kelli wrote a couple of book she recently read and I’m sharing them here on the blog. The first one is The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry.

Kelli writes: “This book was quite interesting to me.  It has lots of twists and turns to say the least!  Just as soon as I was sure what was happening, I found out I was wrong, but even then, everything that I thought was going to happen was still completely possible!  And right at the end, it threw me a curveball!  Definitely a book I would recommend reading!”

Here is what Amazon has to say:
Christopher and Hannah are a happily married surgeon and nurse with picture-perfect lives. All that’s missing is a child. When Janie, an abandoned six-year-old, turns up at their hospital, Christopher forms an instant connection with her, and he convinces Hannah they should take her home as their own.

But Janie is no ordinary child, and her damaged psyche proves to be more than her new parents were expecting. Janie is fiercely devoted to Christopher, but she acts out in increasingly disturbing ways, directing all her rage at Hannah. Unable to bond with Janie, Hannah is drowning under the pressure, and Christopher refuses to see Janie’s true nature.

Hannah knows that Janie is manipulating Christopher and isolating him from her, despite Hannah’s attempts to bring them all together. But as Janie’s behavior threatens to tear Christopher and Hannah apart, the truth behind Janie’s past may be enough to push them all over the edge.”

Amazon readers gave the book 4.3 stars. Kelli said she would agree. The book is listed at Best book of #BookToc…meaning best book of TicTock. I’m sure that’s where Kelli got the recommendation to read the book!

You can find the book HERE. If you give it a try, let us know what you thought of the book.

    highly recommend “Code Name Helene” another wonderful read/listen by Ariel Lawhon. This is based on a real life heroine in WWII.
