The School for Good Mothers: A Novel By Jessamine Chan Cover Image
$17.99
ISBN: 9781982156138
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: 37 Ink - February 7th, 2023

Frida Liu has made a mistake. A mistake that has labelled her a bad mother. But Frida is given the opportunity to show she can be a good mother, a redeemed mother, through a new Big Brother-esque government program, that is not all that it seems. The School for Good Mothers is a critique of both Child Protective Services and how we define motherhood (versus fatherhood). Readers will find hints of Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale, both in the main character’s dry self-reflections and in the dystopian world which controls her every move.   --Gwyn, Detroit

Wow! I did not expect to stay up until 2am finishing the second half of this book. Sarah Penner has expertly crafted a supernatural murder mystery that will continually rework your theories until the satisfying denouement. Secrets abound within the London Séance Society, a gentleman’s club that specializes in clairvoyance and spiritualism. The president of the organization was recently murdered and the police have been unable to solve the crime. Enter Vaudeline and Lenna, a well-known spiritualist and her apprentice. They are tasked with holding a séance to learn the identity of the murderer, but only if they can avoid the sinister forces at work. -Rebecca, Atlanta
