A tale inspired by a fairy tale we heard a lot growing up. Changelings. A horrid topic for any mother but a deliciously wicked and creepy idea for a fairy tale! Or is it more than a fairy tale?
Lauren Tranter has given birth to twin boys and is exhausted and unsure of even how to feed them. Her husband, who I disliked immediately, seems to think she will be fine by her self and leaves her there alone with the tiny twins, Morgan and Riley to figure it out.
Lauren knows she isn’t crazy when she calls 911 to say someone is trying to steal her babies. Lauren knows what she saw. A slimy hag of a woman trying to switch her eel like babies for Laurens healthy children. And from the way she speaks, this isn’t the first time.
Lauren is living in fear someone will steal the boys and the husband is definitely acting sketchy so she is pretty much alone. A month goes by and finally she takes the boys to the park. She only closed her eyes for a second and they were gone. And the babies they find look like Morgan and Riley but Lauren knows the truth. These weird little things are not her children and she isn’t going to let it go until someone believes her.
The decision she makes could be deadly and will she have the courage to do what must be done to get her children back?
I loved this book. The characters were described so well you could easily imagine every one of them. Even the weird little changelings!
