Beautifully written and emotionally compelling, Anna George’s The Lone Child is a novel about parenting, judgement, loss and love that asks how much you should do to help a stranger’s child. Praised by Books+Publishing as “[laying] bare the lives of women in the vein of recent psychological thrillers from the likes of Paula Hawkins and Aoife Clifford”, Anna discusses her gripping and atmospheric novel, which explores how the desire to mother, and to be mothered, can be overwhelmingly seductive.
