Two Mothers is one of the most spine-tingling stories I’ve read in a while. I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The story revolves around Anna who is alone in a new house with a baby, waiting for her husband to arrive in a week. The overlaying story provides horrible details about a ghost and her desire to keep her baby.
I recommend Two Mothers and I give it 5 out of 5 Stars.
About Two Mothers
A mother’s depression. A ghost’s obsession. A baby caught in the crosshairs.
Anna Jenkins is a new mother suffering from postpartum fatigue. While her husband is finishing up his Army duties before retirement, she travels to South Carolina to set up their house, an old farmhouse her husband bought sight unseen.
It’s not long before Anna realizes there is something eerie about her new home. Although it’s the dog days of summer, the house is unusually cool even without the A/C running. And her baby, who usually screams nonstop, is mysteriously soothed whenever placed in the antique crib that came with the house.
When she uncovers a long-buried secret, Anna must claw her way out of her despondency to save her baby from the clutches of the dead. Will she find the strength to save her child? Or will a disturbed spirit get what it came for?
A psychological slow burn perfect for anyone who likes things that go bump in the night.
