The Midwife

Victoria Jenkins

She’s there to keep your baby safe… Or is she?

I’ve always wanted a baby, more than anything. I never meant to do it alone, but it’ll be a fresh start. I can finally leave the past behind me.

I’m so lucky to have Jackie, my midwife, who understands how hard this is. She supports me more than anyone could have hoped or expected.

But as I sit in this cold white room, that was meant to be full of other mothers to be, a chill creeps up my spine. There’s only one other mother here, and she’s clutching her bump nervously. And as she squirms under Jackie’s questions, Jackie can’t stop staring at me.

And then something clicks, and my blood freezes. She recognises me, doesn’t she?

For fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and The Housemaid, this is a psychological thriller that will have you reading late into the night and gasping at the final twist!
