My Review: My thanks to Netgalley for the honour of reading this simply incredible book. A Mother’s Confession is an emotional roller coaster and one of the only books I didn’t want to read purely because I didn’t want it to finish. This is a story about a man called David, a husband, father and son, told from the viewpoint of Olivia, his wife and Ivy, his over protective mother. Shocking and deeply uncomfortable in parts, sad and heartbreaking in others, this gripping and moving book is going straight into my Top Ten Reads of 2016 5 BIG FAT STARS
