Review

'Only A Mother is brilliantly observed, both tender and heart-breaking, without once flinching from harsh realities. Taking on a traumatic subject, combining realism with drama, is an incredibly difficult task but Carpenter handles it with breath-taking skill. Highly recommended, this is exactly the subject matter that book clubs have been waiting for' (Helen Fields)

A refreshing move forward from the sometimes exhausting twists and turns of some psychological thrillers, Only a Mother is nevertheless a real rollercoaster of a read, with an emotionally resonant ending that left me both moved and humbled by the strength of a mother's love. I couldn't put this book down (Charlotte Duckworth author of THE RIVAL)

Tense, shocking and terrifyingly believable. Only A Mother turns the psychological thriller on its head, coming at the genre from a wholly original angle. The writing is sharp; the characters complex and compelling; the story skillfully plotted. A fantastic read. (Rebecca Tinnelly, author of NEVER GO THERE)

An unsettling, consistently compelling thriller with a terrific sense of foreboding. (B.P Walter, author of A VERSION OF THE TRUTH)

Elisabeth Carpenter skilfully portrays a mother's love with unflinching honesty and tenderness. But is it misplaced? I recommend reading this tense and compelling thriller to find out. (Caroline England, author of MY HUSBAND'S LIES)

An unsettling domestic psychological thriller ... Tense and heartbreaking (The i newspaper)

ONLY A MOTHER is a deeply moving, compelling story with strong, relatable characters that leap from the page in true Carpenter style. (Sam Carrington, author of One Little Lie)

Totally gripping from start to finish. Observational. Intelligent. Beautifully constructed plot. (Amanda Robson)

Totally gripping from start to finish. Observational. Intelligent. Beautifully constructed plot. (Amanda Robson)
