Hey there, my friend. I hope you are great today!
Below you will find a synopsis of “The Dark Side” by Danielle Steel pulled from NetGalley, followed by my review and star rating.
I hope you enjoy, and thank you for stopping by.
From The Publisher :
In her new novel, Danielle Steel tells a riveting story of the dark side of motherhood.
Zoe Morgan’s childhood was marked by her younger sister’s tragic illness, watching as her parents dedicated themselves completely to her final days and then divorced. As a young woman driven by these painful memories, Zoe sets the bar high for herself, studying hard and pursuing a career in the nonprofit world, where her deep compassion for disadvantaged children finds a focus.
When Zoe falls in love and has her own child, she is determined to be a perfect mother as well. But before long, old scars long dormant begin to pull Zoe to the edge of an abyss too terrifying to contemplate.
As Zoe is haunted by the ghosts of the past, her story will become a race against time and a tale of psychological suspense that no reader will soon forget.
My Review :
Zoe clearly loves her daughter…to death.
What a gripping and harrowing story of what one mother will do in order to be seen as mother of the year. This book hooked me from the beginning, and I couldn’t stop reading. Fans of Danielle Steel and dark psychological thrillers alike will love this book, I believe.
You never really know how far someone is willing to go in order for others to see them as a hero. The Dark Side explores that in spectacular fashion. It feels almost frenetic while reading, amping up the suspense factor. It breaks my heart knowing that there are real cases of this happening, even now – but diving deeper into the world I didn’t know much about was fascinating.
