A child star, a disturbed mind

I've read some of Lucinda Riley's novels before, but so far, I liked this one best. What a gripping tale about, among other things, a very disturbed mind. I really felt with the protagonists, and went through all the emotions from love, through sorrow, to horror. The characters all felt true, and the book had me hooked until the end. It was an outstanding performance by Julia Barrie. I'm convinced that the narrator enhanced my experience of the book. My guess is, that Mrs Riley did a lot of research into the symptoms of depression, schizophrenia etc, because from my experience, what is described here is very convincing.
So, author and narrator both did an excellent job, and I'm glad I happend to choose this book when on the lookout for something new. If you want a glimpse into the time just after WWII until the 1990s, with all the problems women had to contend with, and the consequences of pregnancy as an unmarried woman, this is the book for you. We're fortunate that in our time and place it has improved, but the problems of how to raise a child as a single mum are still pretty much the same. This is a powerful story of a couple of women who faced exactly this, and how they got through it.
