A Good Morning America Book Club Pick | A New York Times bestseller!

“Utterly addictive.” —Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train

“Hooks you from the very first page and will have you racing to get to the end.”—Good Morning America

A tense, page-turning psychological drama about the making and breaking of a family—and a woman whose experience of motherhood is nothing at all what she hoped for—and everything she feared

Blythe Connor is determined that she will be the warm, comforting mother to her new baby Violet that she herself never had.

But in the thick of motherhood's exhausting early days, Blythe becomes convinced that something is wrong with her daughter—she doesn't behave like most children do.

Or is it all in Blythe's head? Her husband, Fox, says she's imagining things. The more Fox dismisses her fears, the more Blythe begins to question her own sanity, and the more we begin to question what Blythe is telling us about her life as well.

Then their son Sam is born—and with him, Blythe has the blissful connection she'd always imagined with her child. Even Violet seems to love her little brother. But when life as they know it is changed in an instant, the devastating fall-out forces Blythe to face the truth.

The Push is a tour de force you will read in a sitting, an utterly immersive novel that will challenge everything you think you know about motherhood, about what we owe our children, and what it feels like when women are not believed.

    Incredibly well written and narrated. I didn’t want to turn off the car or stop walking so I could hear just one more chapter each time.

  • Margie C.

  • Melissa S.

    This book was misery at every turn. And that’s coming from a realist. I had to stop listening by hour 4.

  • Mary F.

    A revival of THE BAD SEED only better. Well done. One of the best books I’ve read on the truth about motherhood. She expresses the rollercoaster of emotions involved beautifully. Nice twist at the end.

  • Deborah N.

    A tough read for most mothers. A sad story. The narrator was outstanding I am thankful my parents loved me unconditionally. Now my 4 children love their children and parent like they experienced through my example. Not Every child is that fortunate Deb N

  • Marni K.

    Such a great book! Would sit in my car in the driveway to hear just one more chapter!

  • Rose D.

    I thought the story was only dealing with post-partum depression, & women who just should NOT have been mothers...but to my pleasant surprise, we had a "bad seed" scenario to contend with as well! Interesting turn of events!! I didn't care for the "2nd person" narrative.

    Damn. That was good.
