Laguna Beach Books is pleased to welcome Suzanne Redfearn, author of Hush Little Baby. Suzanne will read an excerpt from her book, answer questions, and sign books. She would also love it if people who have read the book are interested in discussing it. There is no charge for this event.
Jillian Kane appears to have it all — a successful career, a gorgeous home, a loving husband, and two wonderful children. The reality behind closed doors is something else entirely. For nine years she has hid the bruises and the truth of her abusive marriage in order to protect Addie and Drew, knowing, if she left, Gordon would destroy her — destroy them.
When, in an act of desperation, she flees, her worst nightmare is realized and she finds herself on the run with her two young children, no money, and no plan. With Gordon in hot pursuit, there is only one inescapable certainty: No matter where she goes, he will find her. Kill her. And take her children.
A riveting page-turner, Hush Little Baby exposes the shame and terror of domestic violence as well as the disturbing role manipulation and sabotage can play in the high-stakes game of child custody. Suspenseful and unforgettably moving, it is a novel about the unbreakable bonds of family and the astounding, terrifying devotion of a mother’s love. This compelling family drama will resonate with lovers of Jodi Picoult, Gillian Flynn, Lisa Scottoline, and Anna Quindlen.
