Book Description

This is a novella.
When Emily Palmer finds herself in the waiting area of the labour ward with an irate mother-to-be, she recounts the story of how she happens to be there, alone, to calm the situation.
Her bizarre courtroom tale, of the oddest custody battle in history, gives her reason to reflect on the outcome of her child's future happiness on the small decision of her birth name.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Original and Fascinating Story 27 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a couldn't put it down sort of book. The central character Emily is beautifully drawn and real, and the amazing situation she gets into through her work kept me reading on when I had meant to try only a few pages and read it later. I really must not spoil this story for you. Get it, read it and enjoy it. I am quite sure you will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and charming short story 3 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting short story - compelling enough to read in one sitting. Definitely didn't take the direction I thought it was going in, and I liked the fact I couldn't guess where it was going to head next.

A few minor gripes and overused tropes (I won't discuss here because of spoilers and doesn't detract from the main thrust of the story) but I had fun reading it regardless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Want the Story to End. 15 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading 'Scrag - Up The Hill Backwards' from this author a few months back, I was delighted to discover this novella on kindle. I knew I was in for a treat.

I was immediately hooked from the beginning, I desperately wanted to know what was going to happen and my mind conjured up all kinds of answers. None of which were right!

The suspense Jesamine creates is deliciously unbearable!

I would have loved this to have been longer, the ideas are fantastic.

I look forward to reading more from Jesamine James, and highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Mind-twister 9 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's not very frequent that I think about books so long after I've read them and yet I can't get it out of my head. It's an incredible series of events that do work and could happen.... but at the same time, if you heard the story from a friend you'd think 'No way'. But it still works.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly entertaining read! 2 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jesamine James is currently my favourite author. She gives the reader guaranteed entertainment woven with depth, and an utterly compelling read. This book is brilliantly crafted and the plot is exceptionally clever, with an unexpected twist. Although at times the story was thought, provoking it was also entertaining and extremely funny. Her character’s were also very well drawn and believable.
I can’t recommend this author and her books highly enough, as she never fails to deliver. I’m already reading her next book and will be eagerly awaiting more.
