Publisher's Summary

When Brian finds out that his wife, Diane, is pregnant, he is elated. He’s been patiently waiting for twelve years to become a father. But Diane has always been nervous about having children because of her family’s dark past. The timing of the pregnancy also isn’t ideal - Diane has just been promoted, and Brian is being called away to open a new London office for his company.
Fast-forward one year: Being a mother has brought Diane a sense of joy that she’d never imagined and she’s head over heels for her new baby, Grace. But things are far from perfect: Brian has still not returned from London, and Diane fears leaving the baby for even a moment. As unsettling changes in those around Diane began to emerge, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems.
A woman’s dark past collides head-on with her mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama.

The build up is what keeps it from being 4 stars

Good and the twists at the end we're really good but the build up made me think this wasn't going to be a mystery or thriller. The pacing was a bit slow.

OK story, decent performance

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was an OK story to listen to while doing tasks. I missed some of the story but didn't feel like it was detrimental to the plot.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Better plot/story editing. There was a lot of repetition and exposition. Parts of the story dragged on.

Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favorite?

I liked the "Brian" character slightly better as he seemed more realistic.

Could you see The Memory Child being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Could be a movie with better editing. The concept is compelling but the writing needs more polish.

Never Expected

I obviously liked the write-up and reviews of this book because I bought it twice. Once for my kindle and once from Audible. I enjoyed going between the two with them syncing all the time.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. All the way through I had questions that remained unanswered and certainly never expected the ending.
