How I Lost You : A Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Four years ago, Susan Webster was convicted of smothering her baby, Dylan, in a fog of postpartum psychosis. Now paroled from Oakdale Psychiatric Facility, she's changed her name and moved to a Shropshire village to rebuild her life. But her comforting anonymity is shattered when she receives a picture of a four-year-old boy in the mail with a message that Dylan is still alive. Then Nick Whitely, a reporter investigating the disappearance of the medical examiner whose testimony helped convict Susan, appears at her door. Desperate to grasp any hope that she hasn't killed her son, Susan persuades Nick to help her investigate the possibility that Dylan is alive. As they peel back the layers of the medical examiner's disappearance and the questionable defense presented by Susan's attorney, they find startling connections to her ex-husband's past. Susan's engaging character and the story's well-crafted twists make this an addictive read; a strong recommendation for those who like suspense tinged with a little romance.--Tran, Christine Copyright 2017 Booklist

Susan Webster, the narrator of British author Blackhurst's captivating if flawed first novel, believes that she's guilty of smothering her three-month-old son, Dylan, to death in a fit of postpartum depression, even though she has no memory of doing so. After spending nearly three years at the Oakdale Psychiatric Facility, she's paroled and given a new name. Shortly after she settles in Ludlow, Shropshire, someone mails her a photo of a smiling young boy with the name Dylan written on the back. Scared and confused, Susan enlists the aid of Cassie Reynolds, her best friend from Oakdale, and reporter Nick Whitely to reexamine the crime. As Susan looks into her past, she realizes how little she knew about Mark, her ex-husband and the child's father. The danger to Susan escalates as the truth slowly reveals itself, but the plot goes off the rails under the weight of the implausible actions of several key characters, some of whom aren't who they seem to be.
