The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald, Expected US Publication: February 5, 2019 by Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books.
I have had my eyes on The Night Olivia Fell since I first heard about it, and I was super excited to be invited to read and review an ARC. I am also ecstatic I was able to schedule a group read with a few blogger buddies! We hope to start reading next week! Just take a look at that eerie cover and this synopsis (reading it has me both enthralled and emotional already).
In the vein of Big Little Lies and Reconstructing Amelia comes an emotionally charged domestic suspense novel about a mother unraveling the truth behind how her daughter became brain dead. And pregnant.
A search for the truth. A lifetime of lies.
In the small hours of the morning, Abi Knight is startled awake by the phone call no mother ever wants to get: her teenage daughter Olivia has fallen off a bridge. Not only is Olivia brain dead, she’s pregnant and must remain on life support to keep her baby alive. And then Abi sees the angry bruises circling Olivia’s wrists.
When the police unexpectedly rule Olivia’s fall an accident, Abi decides to find out what really happened that night. Heartbroken and grieving, she unravels the threads of her daughter’s life. Was Olivia’s fall an accident? Or something far more sinister?
Christina McDonald weaves a suspenseful and heartwrenching tale of hidden relationships, devastating lies, and the power of a mother’s love. With flashbacks of Olivia’s own resolve to uncover family secrets, this taut and emotional novel asks: how well do you know your children? And how well do they know you?
