Hush Little Baby by Suzanne Redfearn




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.

Hush Little Baby is one of the most intense books I have read.This book will have you so emotionally invested in the lives of the Kane family. The storyline is so intense and compelling, that it was impossible not to be vested in the character's lives. I found myself holding my breath as I was reading the hospital encounter between Jillian and Gordon.

I look forward to reading more of Suzanne Redfearn's writing. It was a bold move to tackle domestic violence in her first book, and by gosh did it work for her. This is one of the best books that I have read this year. I am looking forward to her next read. I will have to highly recommend this book.
