The Push: A Novel

We rated this book:


The Push tells us the story of a woman named Blythe. Born into a family in which the women all seem to be mentally unstable, as an adult Blythe finds herself married to Fox and giving birth to their daughter, Violet. The relationship between Blythe and Violet is volatile from the beginning, and Blythe feels there is something very wrong with her daughter from day one. As the family grows, baby Sam is born and Blythe feels a connection with her baby boy like no other. He is her pride and joy. But then something awful happens and Blythe just can’t stop herself from going down the rabbit hole. There is something wrong with her daughter. She can feel it in her bones.

In this brilliant psychological thriller, readers find themselves trying to figure out if the main protagonist is reliable or if she’s simply making things up. Blythe takes risks that perhaps only a desperate mother would take, but she is extremely likable as well. The way her husband treats her is absolutely atrocious and so I don’t blame Blythe at all for the steps she takes to find out the truth in this book. A fantastic read for lovers of domestic suspense.
