Book Description: Sally Thorning is watching the news with her husband when she hears an unexpected name - Mark Bretherick. It's a name she shouldn't know, but last year Sally treated herself to a secret vacation - away from her hectic family life - and met a man. After their brief affair, the two planned to never meet again. But now, Mark's wife and daughter are dead - and the safety of Sally's own family is in doubt.
This book was originally released August 2008 in the United Kingdom as The Point of Rescue. The name was changed to The Wrong Mother and release in the US September 2009. I have recently began broadening my horizons to include more of the crime fiction genre. This book was a wonderful start to my collection. Sophie Hannah created a incredibly intricate story that kept me guessing. Though, be forewarned this book takes complete focus and attention to understand; the number of characters that are followed throughout the entirety of this book was a bit overwhelming. I love books that make you reflect on your life, and the reality of the story will leave its mark in the future; The Wrong Mother is one of those stories. For a mother and a wife it makes me step back and look at life a little more clearly.
