The Herd By Emily Edwards

The Herd By Emily Edwards



You should never judge how someone chooses to raise their child.
Elizabeth and Bryony are polar opposites but their unexpected friendship has always worked. They’re the best of friends, and godmothers to each other’s daughters – because they trust that the safety of their children is both of their top priority.

But what if their choice could harm your own child?

Little do they know that they differ radically over one very important issue. And when Bryony, afraid of being judged, tells what is supposed to be a harmless white lie before a child’s birthday party, the consequences are more catastrophic than either of them could ever have imagined . . 

My Thoughts:

I thought this was quite a unique, interesting and thought provoking story which is definitely a conversation starter. Not being a parent I still found it an interesting topic to write a story about, it begs the question what would you do? You basically get both sides of the story whose side do you choose? It had me gripped and when I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about both sides of the story. I mean I know what side I would of chosen if I was a parent to get the child vaccinated but I can see the argument from the other side. This would be a brilliant book for a book club up for discussion, I can see this book is going to be a hit. A really good read about a sensitive topic but one parents have to go through every day.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
