About the Book:
Her child has been taken. But no-one believes her. Sarah’s beautiful eighteen-month-old son, Oliver, has gone missing. And she will do anything – anything – to get him back. But there’s a problem. Everyone around Sarah, even her beloved identical twin, Evie, tells her she never had a son, that he’s a figment of her imagination, that she’s not well, she needs help. And they’re right, Sarah does need support. She has suffered massive trauma in the past and now she’s severely agoraphobic, very rarely leaves the house, avoids all contact with people. But Sarah doesn’t care what anyone says - she’s utterly convinced that Oliver is real, that the love she feels for him is true. And that can only mean one thing – someone has been planning this. And now they’ve taken her child.

The Child Who Never Was by Jane Renshaw is a thrilling read. This was such a compelling read, it’s so complex and beautifully written the story could be a story that is too dark, but there is something about it that will brighten you and make you feel for the characters whether you have been in similar situations or not. This book is a chilling psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and thrilled beyond belief. The story is one that will turn your stomach putting yourself in the main character Sarah’s shoes, she tells her story and it's one that will leave you open mouthed in wonder and confusion, as you wonder if what you are reading is real or a delusion. Sarah and Evie have a complicated relationship and it only gets more complex as the story unfolds, this will be a difficult story for some, but for many it will be a gripping page turner.
