Rezension zu "The Night Child: A Novel" von Anna Quinn

Emotionally disturbing
misspidervor 9 Monaten

This book is not a comfortable read, and the subject is one of the most hideous. In this story Nora, a high school teacher and mother of a six-year-old girl, starts seeing visions of a small girl with blue eyes. She consults a psychiatrist who helps her to remember some long forgotten, deeply buried childhood trauma. The story describes how Nora step by step uncovers what happened in the past and how she slowly breaks apart on her way there. The additional circumstance that her husbands seems to be cheating on her is as unsettling as the nearing Valentine's Day, which has special significance to Nora.

The book was very emotionally disturbing and hard to digest, especially after learning that it is based on the author's memoir. I admire the courage and immeasurable strength it must have taken to revisit the past. I also read that writing helped her to deal with it, and on the way she created a remarkable novel.

(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
