About the author: Deborah O’Connor is a writer and TV producer. Born and bred in the North-East of England, in 2010 she completed the Faber Academy novel writing course. She lives in London with her husband and daughter.
My Review:My Husband’s Son is a gripping debut by Deborah O’Connor which explores every parents worst fears – the death and disappearance of a child.
