How can you be a mother if you don't love your baby? A powerful new novel confronts the issue of postnatal depression.Jessica has just had the wedding of her dreams, and now she's setting up a new home with her lawyer husband Matthew. Even better—they are expecting a child. As they paint the nursery and shop for baby clothes, she plans for the joy that motherhood will bring. But Jessica's experience is far from joyous. Why isn't she transformed by maternal feelings? Where is the all-consuming love she's supposed to feel for her child? No one told her that being a mother was so lonely and terrifying. No one told her you don't always love your baby. Perhaps it'sbest if Jessica keeps that dark secret to herself for now.
