The Memory Child By Steena Holmes

When Brian finds out that his wife, Diane, is pregnant, he is elated. He’s been patiently waiting for twelve years to become a father. But Diane has always been nervous about having children because of her family’s dark past. The timing of the pregnancy also isn’t ideal—Diane has just been promoted, and Brian is being called away to open a new London office for his company.
Fast-forward one year: being a mother has brought Diane a sense of joy that she’d never imagined and she’s head over heels for her new baby, Grace. But things are far from perfect: Brian has still not returned from London, and Diane fears leaving the baby for even a moment. As unsettling changes in those around Diane began to emerge, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems.
A woman’s dark past collides head-on with her mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama.

Readers I urge you to really think before going out and buying books by authors you have never heard of or because the book has a wonderful cover or because the synopsis is great.
It makes me so sad to have to write a review that is not a 4 or 5 star review. One because it hurts the author and two because I have such a love for books.
This entire series was not edited and this book was so predictable that it was a chore to read the whole book.
I am very happy to say that I am finally done with this series.
I can't not recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the author.
