Amanda is a successful book editor at a prominent publishing
house in New York City. Thea is a stay-at-home mother of
three who has never really left the community in which she
grew up. Amanda, eight monthsâ€™ pregnant with her first
child, and her husband move in next door to Thea and her
family, and the two women find themselves both drawn to and
repelled by each other and their opposing choices in the
constant struggle to balance career and family life.
When a disaster forces Amanda and her family to take refuge
in Theaâ€™s home, the underlying tensions simmering between
them are forced to the surface-and even more so when Thea
fills in as Amandaâ€™s temporary nanny. But once dead animals
start appearing on Theaâ€™s front porch-surely a macabre gift
from Amanda?-the battle with â€śthe other motherâ€ť begins in
With a keen eye for what pulls us apart and what brings us
together, Gwendolen Gross has created a stunning, dark,
suspenseful novel that is as brave as it is shocking.
