    " I'm afraid I just didn't like this book. The story had all the ingredients to make it a great read. However, i felt it so drawn out and very slow. In fact, I started skimming through just to find out what actually happens in the end. I think I should read another book by this author before I pass any judgement on my thoughts on the writer. "

    " Wonderful book, set in England and the tension pulled you through. Daisy, the 7 yo daughter is violently ill. But is it the mother making her sick, trying to be the perfect mother? Or is there something really wrong? Mom's childhood was a disaster, but she finally gets a clue for Daisy when she breaks down and finallly flies to Germany to see her mother and set her childhood memories and questions to rights. "

    " This book started slow and did pick up the pace towards the end. It's a story about the mother of an 8 year old girl who has a mysterious illness - and the mother is accused of Munchausens by proxy. A light read but I am now interested to read more by thios author - The Drowning Man. "
