Praise for A Good Enough Mother:

“Taut, absorbing and psychologically astute, in A Good Enough Mother Bev Thomas combines all the tension of a thriller with the emotional resonance of a powerful family drama.”
—Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

“A gripping novel of what happens when unexpected loss breaks open the boundaries of a carefully constructed life, blurring perspectives and upending the best of intentions.  This powerful story of love, loss–and ultimately, healing–will resonate with everyone who has ever loved a child.”
Kim Edwards, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Keeper’s Daughter

“A Good Enough Mother is not just everything a great thriller should be—haunting, emotional, charged with depth and power—it is also a gorgeous and devastating examination of motherhood that cuts right to the heart.”
—Aimee Molloy, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Mother

“The suspense in A Good Enough Mother is raw and enthralling, with a strong emotional ache at its center.”
Hilma Wolitzer, author of An Available Man

A Good Enough Mother is gorgeously written: It’s both a riveting account of what goes on behind the scenes at your therapist’s office and a dark meditation on motherhood, marriage and grief. I couldn’t put it down.”
Lisa Gabriele, author of The Winters

A Good Enough Mother packs an emotional punch and is a gripping, original read. It is a novel full of loss and longing and the complexities of human relationships.” 
Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat

“A beautiful, compelling book about the hopes and terrors of motherhood. You’ll stay up reading way too late, desperate to find out what happens next . . . and even when you manage to put the book down, Ruth’s story will haunt you.” 
Gin Phillips, author of Fierce Kingdom
