The twins are crying.
The twins are exhausted.

Behind the hospital curtain, someone is waiting...
I may have just squealed with excitement when this #bookmail from @hqstories arrived! Ever since seeing the book trailer on twitter, Little Darlings by Melanie Golding has been one of my most anticipated books of 2019!! I met the author at HQ’s crime fiction showcase, and hearing her talk about her book upped the excitement levels tenfold!! Put this book on your wishlist people, it sounds 😱, it’s scheduled for UK publication in May 2019!!!
Loosely inspired by the ghostly folktale The Brewery of Eggshells, where a mother becomes convinced her twins are in danger, Little Darlings offers a fresh perspective on modern motherhood, postnatal psychosis and the roles women play. It has always been thus: folk tales do not spring from whimsy; they warn us and teach us. And speak to the fear in us all.
