You are pulled into this story almost as if you are listening to a friend. I ended up reading this in one sitting as I just kept wanting to turn the pages. It deals with some disturbing subjects, not least of which is what do our parents get up to behind closed doors.
This is an intriguing read that will keep you reading till the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, unique, real and devastating. 24 Sept. 2014
By Heather G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Aishah Macgill’s “The Day My Mother Murdered…. Herself” is an emotional, intense ride from beginning to ending. 19 year old Amber Armitage has always believed her life to be stable and blessed. Her father is a busy, well known surgeon and her mother is the perfect, dotting mother and house wife. They are a good couple and good parents, though her Father is out more often than he is in.

When Amber comes home from school one day, a college assignment burning in her brain, she hears a noise that will change her life. In her parents room her mother lies on the bed, clad only in her underwear with a bejeweled gun near her hand. Surrounding her is the blood of a life lost, and the beginning of Amber’s own mental struggles.

Her Mother’s apparent suicide immerses Amber in a world of doubt and conjecture. Her life is torn asunder, emotions roll and he mental angst that follows trauma plagues her. When new facts and clues are revealed, Amber finds a trail that leads to a truth she can barely comprehend, much less accept. What really happened that day?

MacGill dives fully into Amber’s character, taking you along for the ride. The emotions are real and deep, the shock devastating and the stages of grief painted with such a stark brush, chills will crawl up your arms. Well written, captivating and moving, this is a Novella you’ll want to share.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strong story 28 Oct. 2014
By Rob Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This short book will take you on a fast ride to an interesting location. So much happens in this quick read that it will make you want to find out more about what this writer has to say.

There are moments of complete devastation and utter heart break in this story. It is a clear and compelling read. As with many great stories, this one centers around the lives of a family who never really talk about how they feel and what they mean to one another.

And in this lack of openness, people's lives are rearranged, and some, the ones who have nothing left, have to start over again, and create a new beginning for themselves.

This was a riveting book. I couldn't book the book down. It begins in an intense way with Amber finding her mother dead one day, she had apparently committed suicide. From there she must determine what had really happened. All the secrets in the family, which ones are real, which ones are made up. Amber also overcomes her own attempted suicide, she is eventually able to heal herself through all the tragic events that happened in this story. A real page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fictional story that could be real… 13 Jun. 2013
By ShyGal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book portrays the journey of a nineteen-year-old girl as she struggles through the aftermath of her mother’s suicide. From discovering her parents’ odd sex life to discovering that she could connect with her mother’s spirit, the girl struggles to find what is “real.” Many people offer advice—from her brother to psychologists—but in the end she must reach her own decision about what is real, what is not, and what is best left unpondered. An interesting fictional story that could nevertheless be real. A good read for a book club or inquiring minds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Step into the mind of catastrophe and reality 11 Jun. 2013
By Keith DuBarry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Aishah proves herself to be a powerful storyteller through strong narration, prose, and even characterization. I opened the book for just an hour of reading; however, I could not put the book down because it was so powerful. Each page gave me more chills up my arms and each chapter gives the reader another lesson in life. I highly recommend this book!
