Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times best seller and most anticipated book of the summer
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Scandal's Kerry Washington
An addictive psychological thriller about a group of women whose lives become unexpectedly connected when one of their newborns goes missing.
A night out. A few hours of fun. That's all it was meant to be.
They call themselves the May Mothers - group of new moms whose babies were born in the same month. Twice a week, they get together in Brooklyn's Prospect Park for some much-needed adult time.
When the women go out for drinks at the hip neighborhood bar, they are looking for a fun break from their daily routine. But on this hot Fourth of July night, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but her fellow May Mothers insisted everything would be fine. Now he is missing. What follows is a heart-pounding race to find Midas, during which secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are destroyed.
Thirteen days. An unexpected twist. The Perfect Mother is a "true page turner." (B.A. Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors)

What a tangled web we weave

I really enjoyed The Perfect Mother- what a great listen. I've been in a listening rut and this book put life back into my earbuds. The story is all about the characters, and the author does a great job drawing out each one, telling her story, tangling the lies and then unravelling the truth. The story is told from the point of view of several members of the May Mothers mommy group, a Brooklyn gathering of pregnant and new moms who meet regularly for friendship and support. None of our mothers is exactly who she presents herself to be, and the subtle competition, comparisons and compulsions of these women in their roles as friends, mothers, wives and working moms are fascinating. The underlying mystery is taut, compelling and not as simple as it may seem on the surface. The narrator did an excellent job creating the individual voices and accents and bringing the characters to life- very impressive, and I'll be looking for more from this narrator. Bravo on a great book and a very enjoyable performance. Highly recommended.
