Christopher and Hannah are a happily married surgeon and nurse with picture-perfect lives. All that’s missing is a child. When Janie, an abandoned six-year-old, turns up at their hospital, Christopher forms an instant connection with her, and he convinces Hannah they should take her home as their own.
But Janie is no ordinary child, and her damaged psyche proves to be more than her new parents were expecting. Janie is fiercely devoted to Christopher, but she acts out in increasingly disturbing ways, directing all her rage at Hannah. Unable to bond with Janie, Hannah is drowning under the pressure, and Christopher refuses to see Janie’s true nature.Hannah knows that Janie is manipulating Christopher and isolating him from her, despite Hannah’s attempts to bring them all together. But as Janie’s behavior threatens to tear Christopher and Hannah apart, the truth behind Janie’s past may be enough to push them all over the edge. 

“I wished I were as optimistic as I pretended. I used to be. Not anymore.” 

This was one of the most spectacular, well-crafted reads I have read in a very long time. It is a thrill ride packed with suspense, fantastic characters and a wild storyline.

The Perfect Child delves into the lives of Hannah and Christopher Bauer, a married couple eager to become parents. After a sequence of events, they come to adopt, Janie, an abandoned child that turned up at the hospital that Hannah and Christopher both work at. The 'perfect' life they had imagined as parents were anything but. It's absolutely horrific. The story is told from 3 perspectives, Hannah's, Christopher's and Piper's, the CPS worker. This delivery really added to the intensity of the reading experience. It allowed the story to unfold at such a perfect face. Keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time. 

The writing, superb. It was flawless, as was the storytelling. Lucinda Berry delivered an intense read that will both make your heart ache and wrench almost simultaneously. She crafted such memorable characters. Both Christopher and Hannah will find their way into your heart. Their story is one that many can relate, too. Many couples deal with the struggles of trying to have a family and I feel that the author captured all of those emotions beautifully. I also feel she gave an authentic voice to her characters when it came to the struggles of being new parents. Piper was another spectacular character and I really loved seeing things from her point of view. Janie, what can I say? The Perfect Child? Well, you'll just have to read it to find out!

This was my first book by Lucinda Berry but I can absolutely assure you that it will not be last! She has made me an instant fan and I cannot wait to lose my self in another one of her stories!
