Book Review quotThe Fifth Childquot by Doris Lessing

4 years ago

When a woman becomes a mother something happens to her. She becomes more protective, nurturing.

Harriet Lovatt wanted it all. She didn`t just want a marriage, kids and a house. She wanted a family and a home. She was well on her way to getting it, everything she dreamed about. Until one day everything changed. This is a story about a mother that struggled to be just that, forsaking all others.

I enjoyed this book. I read the Portuguese version "O Quinto Filho". It`s a little haunting, in a "this could happen to you" sort of way. The beginning is a little slow but then it gets more interesting as the story unfolds. It`s well written and well organized.
