Can not having a child can change your life as much as having one?
Grace has returned to London after twenty years abroad to manage her dying mother's affairs. When she receives a blank Mother's Day card in the post, she is confused and unsettled. Who could have sent it to her and why? She isn't a mother.
Another Mother's Day card arrives. Then come the silent phone calls. Haunted by disturbing flashbacks, Grace starts to unravel. Someone is out to get her. Someone who knows what she has done. Someone who will make her face the past she has run from for so long.
A clever and twisty psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Perfect Holiday that will leave fans of The Push and Girl A gripped.
Previously published as She Chose Me.
What readers are saying about T J Emerson's books:
'I loved the two female protagonists, particularly the brilliantly chilling anti-heroine' Sarah J. Naughton, author of The Mothers
'Moving, compelling and beautifully written. It deserves to fly off the shelves' — Mel McGrath, author of Tell Me Your Secrets 'I read this in two days. Fast-paced, dark and unsettling, this is an intelligently written, edge-of-your-seat thriller. A compelling pageturner with a satisfying ending and a late twist that I didn't see coming' — Susan Elliot Wright, author of All You Ever Wanted.
'Mother's Day is a cleverly constructed, elegant page turner that will hook you from the very first line. An enormously enjoyable read' — Louise Dean, award-winning author of Becoming Strangers
'If you enjoy tension, suspense and surprise, Mother's Day by T.J Emerson is your next favourite read. Emerson ratchets up the suspense from the first page and never lets it go. Dignified by deft and ingenious plotting, forensically insightful characterisation and impeccable prose, this psychological thriller delivers on all levels' — Lesley Glaister, award-winning author of Blasted Things
'An accomplished thriller that despite being tightly plotted manages to retain a really refreshing rawness... The fast paced story kept me guessing until the end and raised many thought provoking questions about family, motherhood, rejection and mental health. I do love a story that intrigues as much as it provokes, and to this end T.J. Emerson has scored on both counts. Very well done' — Cath Weeks, author of Mothers
