I did not expect anything like this story when I started to read. A very complex story of family life . Not my usual choice of books but I was looking for something a bit different . This is the second book I have read by this author and I would recommend it.

Such a big story inside a little book, a story of 3 sisters facing up to some painful truths not only to themselves but about each other, initially I almost left it at about page 50 I felt it was meandering and couldn't really see where it was going, but I went back to it and didn't put it down until I'd finished it. There is beauty and brutality almost along side each other as each sister going through her own journey of growth and resolution. The story deals with some really thorny issues but isn't dramatic or gratuitous, just painfully honest. Loved it but am so glad the mother didn't have a living part as that would have overwhelmed the main characters who were utterly believable I might add. Another great book from the talented Angela Marsons

This is not a book which I would normally have chosen to read however, after enjoying Silent Scream so much I thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did. This book really makes you think about the damage that can be done in childhood and how it can affect the rest of your life. Very well written and much enjoyed.

It is a very sad but there are twists and turns in the book. I haven't quite finished reading the book but l do have difficulty putting it down and looking forward when l can continue reading it well written it makes you think about the person who wrote it she obviously has some kind of knowledge to write it's interesting but very sad as it affects each person later on in life that bit l know is true it's almost like l could have written the book. I looking forward to the next chapter well worth reading.

Angela Marsons never disappoints.
The Middle Child is a powerful and emotional read that reduced me to tears. it's about 3 sisters who have been separated for years but are reunited after the death of their violent and sadistic mother. Old and deeply disturbing memories are re- awakened for them as each battles to come to terms with the past and tries to move forward to a brighter future.
Fabulous novel- loved it.

I read Evil Games and was very impressed, but was equally disappointed by this book. In fact I’m not sure why the author would want to write this type of book when she can do so much better, and there are so many really good memoir writers telling true life tragic tales. I found the book predictable, the violent sex gratuitous and not the emotional read the blurb promised. I didn’t engage with the story nor any of the characters. But I will try another Kim Stone novel.

A book filled with so much heartache, cruelty, intensity and pain. But a great read all the same. And in the end, and what an end it is, love triumphs over adversity. This tale of three sisters had this bloke in tears at times and Angela Marson's writing of this tale is sublime. I look forward to Angela's books like a kid waiting for Santa. And Angela always ensures that Santa delivers. This book was a belter.

Very disappointing. Middle child?? No, it was mostly about Catherine (eldest) and Alex (youngest)....both rather unpleasant characters as far as I was concerned. Lots of childhood trauma which clearly has repercussions into adult life, but no real insight or explanation about their mother's behaviour during their childhood. Why did Beth (middle child) stay with mother, why did the sisters remain estranged from each other for 10+ years, only coming together after their mother's death? Despite lots of 'explanations' via Catherine's therapist, I still found that this book lacked any real insight into Beth's behaviour/mothers behaviour, and despite their childhood traumas I really found myself lacking any empathy towards Catherine and Alex. Sorry, but I found this really tedious, not helped by typos, etc.
