Definitely a page turner and seems to me it could so easily happen. All rather possible I'm afraid. Style rather unconvincing though.

In `Mummy's Little Girl' Jane Elliott returns to similar territory; a young girl is drugged and raped and has a little girl who she is forced to abandon in a maternity ward shortly after giving birth. The little girl names `Dani' grows up in an unloving and eventually violent foster home and is forced into a Care Home which isn't much better. When she runs away from the care Home Dani heads for London and is found by Baxter, a vicious pimp, who forces her into a life of abuse and drug addiction. However, Dani's mother has never forgotten her and will go to any lengths to find her daughter.

I enjoyed Jane Elliott's novel `Sadie' very much and so was a little disappointed that `Mummy's Little Girl' followed a similar plot line, with the same themes and characters that were also very familiar. I was hoping that she would push herself a little further and write something more original. This book is certainly a page-turner and you do care what happens to the young Dani but I couldn't help but feel that I knew what was going to happen.

I have never felt so strongly to write a review of a book. I thought that Sadie was good, by the same author, but this book blew me away. The characters were believeable, you could almost be in the same room when the storyline took place, especially the "big bad Baxter", and my heart was racing a few times towards the end of the book

The twist at the end was no surprise, but that didnt spoil the book at all.

This reminded me of days gone by, when Martina Cole used to write a good unputdownable book, and Martina should be aspiring to be as good as Jane Elliott

To miss this would be a traversty, go out and buy this

This is a fantastic read! In fact this is the first review I've written, so that's how much it impressed me. I thought that Sadie,also by Jane Elliot was good but this was even better. It had your attention from the start and I couldn't put it down.
The characters are good and the story is a bit harrowing at times for poor Dani.
As a Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller fan, I would thoroughly recommend this book.

Really enjoyed this. Was a little graphic in places, but unfortunatly in this day, very believable. Finished up reading it till half three in the morning. Would definatly recommend and will be looking out for more books by same author.

I have been a fan for the last couple of books by Jane, I thoroughly enjoyed Sadie, and was really looking forward to this new book.

I could not put it down, at times the story is so desperate it is heart-breaking, but very well written and I am eagerly looking forward to future books. I have read Martina Cole for years, and have now found another favourite in Jane Elliott.

Well i read this book in 2 sittings. I actually thought it was a true story but its actually fiction. Jane Elliott writes very much like Jenny tomlin - if u love her fiction you will enjoy this. Its again one of those books that are not always pleasant reading but you cant wait to get to the end to find out how it all turns out. I wouldnt say this book is as "graphic" as jenny tomlins - you know whats happening but it doesnt go into the detail as much. Its still a horrifying story! This girl endures a a life of misery for 13 years which should be the happiest of times for a child! But shes a fighter!! But who will save her!! 8/10 for me!
