The Hidden Girls

9781447265887

How does the saying go? Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you . . .

For Ruth, a new mother recovering from postpartum psychosis, every day is difficult and, after months spent hearing voices in the walls and trusting no one, she's no longer confident in her own judgement. Neither, it seems, is anyone else. So, when she hears a scream from the local petrol station one night, she initially decides it must be her mind playing tricks again.

The police, too, are polite but firm: she must stop calling them every time she thinks she hears something. And her husband is frustrated; he'd hoped Ruth was getting better at last. Ruth can't quite let it go. What if there was a scream? What if it was someone in trouble? Someone who needs Ruth's help?

Exploring the dark and isolating side of motherhood, the question at the heart of Rebecca Whitney's The Hidden Girls is how much you can help someone else when you can't trust anyone - even yourself.
