Description

I loved how the characters had two completely seperate lives, and how somehow they knew they had this amazing connection. Best points are the depth of the characterizations, the details of Lauren’s postpartum struggle, and the uncertainty throughout the whole thing about whether Lauren is suffering from postpartum psychosis or whether the crazy woman who wants the babies really is fay.

As the novel progresses and more exciting events occur, we also obtain the POV of Detective Sergeant Joanna Harper who takes an unexpected interest in the potential abduction of her twins that Lauren initially reports to the police. In terms of this being a mystery thriller, the story actually takes quite a predictable path, so what you think is happening at the start is exactly what it turns out to be, however, it’s also ambiguous and leaves the reader asking questions. I can’t honestly remember when I first came across a changeling story so I’m not even sure where to recommend finding that content.It is painfully obvious that Destiny is being exploited and that Mickey only wants to know her out of self-interest, and yet it is presented as a ‘happy ending’. Though the storyline is very similar to JW’s book ‘Clean Break’, just because there are three kids and the younger sister is considered ‘prettier’ than the older one, then there’s a younger brother who wants to wear the same thing all the time. Little Darlings is a book that everyone can relate to and the descriptions used by Wilson help to create a cognitive visual of the story. The book's ending was noted for its ambiguity, which left it unclear whether the events portrayed were caused by supernatural interference or Lauren's psychosis. Little Darlings is inspired by the Welsh fairy tale A Brewery of Eggshells, about a woman with newborn twins who are swapped with changelings.

After that opening chapter I knew I wouldn’t put the book down until I found out what had happened to drive this woman to take such action! A shadow on the hospital camera and trampled grass in an area where Lauren claims to have seen the threatening woman suggest one possibility, while Lauren’s own admittance that she’s only been managing a couple of hours of sleep at a time for weeks and is off her depression medication suggest quite another.Lauren keeps the otherworldly details about the mysterious woman and her babies-that-are-not-quite-babies to herself.
