Even the perfect family can fall apart. This compelling, emotional debut from Dawn Barker now includes a bonus sample of her new book, Let Her Go.

An unforgettable novel that brings to life a new mother's worst fears.

Tony is worried. His wife, Anna, isn't coping with their newborn. Anna had wanted a child so badly and, when Jack was born, they were both so happy. They'd come home from the hospital a family. Was it really only six weeks ago?

But Anna hasn't been herself since. One moment she's crying, the next she seems almost too positive. It must be normal with a baby, Tony thought; she's just adjusting. He had been busy at work. It would sort itself out. But now Anna and Jack are missing. And Tony realises that something is really wrong...

What happens to this family will break your heart and leave you breathless.

'Moving at a cracking pace, Fractured is part psychological thriller, part family drama. ... This novel will be a great book club read as it ends with more questions than answers' - Bookseller & Publisher

'Fractured is an extraordinary exploration of mental illness and grief told with great confidence and compassion.' - Newtown Review of Books
