Portraying the rarely talked about underbelly of new motherhood, The New Mother provides eye opening insight into how easily a sleep deprived, self conscious, struggling woman can be manipulated as a pawn in a sadistic plot without her knowledge. Although most new mothers don’t have to worry about this extreme of a situation, the insight of the experience of postpartum depression and psychosis is important for new families to be aware of and watch out for. The New Mother is an edge of your seat read, and the reader feels pulled into the sleep deprived, hazy world of a first time mom.
The New Mother is the experience of Nat, a new mother struggling with postpartum depression, living in a new neighborhood, and her return to work. Nat makes a friend in the neighborhood, a stay at home dad down the street, Paul. Paul is the perfect friend in every way - he shows up anytime she needs anything, and always is able to calm her baby and provide a listening ear. Is Paul a true friend, or does he have other motivations?
