Book Review: Mother by S.E. Lynes

Mother
by S.E. Lynes

Christopher has never felt like he fit in with his family. One day he finds a letter, and discovers he is adopted. He decides to find his birth mother… she will love him and he will finally have somewhere he belongs.

This story was told by an anonymous third person, but from Christopher’s point of view. I found this, and the time line, to be a little confusing.

At the beginning of the novel, Christopher turned eighteen and was soon off to university. The primary story was about Christopher wanting to be with his mother, but there was also a side story about a serial killer targeting local women.

A slow psychological thriller set in England in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It took a while for me to get into this book. I was about a third in before I started to get interested in what was happening and where it was all leading.

I received a copy of this book from Bookouture and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
