I had never read this author before but once I picked up this book I was hooked! It is a tragic tale about a mother who accidently kills one of her children trying to teach her a lesson. The story is told by two people. The mother and the nanny. I hated the mother but at times caught myself feeling sorry for her. I was so sure I knew the ending of this story until boom.....I was soooo wrong! Great job Bernie! I loved this book and can't wait to read more by you!
