Rebecca non si aspetta di fare nuove amicizie in età adulta, ma dopo aver adottato Amy si trova a passare i pomeriggi al parco. Lì incontra altre madri: prima la fascinosa e divertente Rose, poi Lilith, mamma single che non lascia mai con gli occhi la sua piccola Ruby-Mae. Molto presto le tre donne formano un trio e le loro figlie cominciano a comportarsi come sorelle. Ma Rebecca comprenderà che l'amicizia non è sempre come sembra e che talvolta ci si fida delle persone sbagliate. Nello stesso momento in cui avrebbe bisogno di poter far affidamento su di loro, scopre che una delle sue nuove amiche nasconde un segreto scioccante e l'altra le si rivolta contro. Le amiche del parco cambieranno la vita di Rebecca – e quella della sua famiglia – per sempre.

This book was terrible for my productivity. Once I started it I couldn't do anything else until I'd turned the last page. It's about the friendships and rivalries between women, and the lengths to which desperation will push us. I was particularly impressed by how well researched all the legal and ch Leggi tutto
Letto in un giorno. Ho scoperto la casa editrice Astoria quest’anno e finora non ne sono mai rimasta delusa. Bei racconti, avvincenti, veloci, con la giusta carica di suspense e di mistero. La vicenda viene raccontata dal punto di vista di Rebecca, madre amorevole e affettuosa, che nel parco vicino Leggi tutto
An easy read with important themes
Easy read but a bit too contrived for my liking.
This is a very intriguing book that really kept my attention. I liked the familiar South African setting and the author's humour, which comes through delightfully in her writing. I particularly enjoyed her characters--often unimportant secondary ones--that she brings surprisingly to life through the Leggi tutto
I didn't enjoy this as much as The Aftermath by her, mainly because it had more mistakes in and also because she used so many terms in this one I had to keep looking up, which interrupted the flow for me. A glossary at the beginning would be helpful for those of us unfamiliar with South African phra Leggi tutto
I have recently become a reviewer for Pan MacMillan South Africa. This is really exciting and I am so looking forward to working with them. As part of my first batch of books for review, I received Gail Schimmel’s new novel, ‘The Park’. The story is told in first person narrative by the main characte Leggi tutto
A very different, but interesting story. Loved reading the works of a South African author and the humour she brought into her writing. Some spelling and grammatical errors which were a bit annoying but the storyline made up for it.
I had just finished The Aftermath so I thought I would read another of Gail’s books. I downloaded a sample but was not hooked enough to order the book..yet. However, I finally did get the whole book because I love her writing and her humour and could find nothing else to read that was as “playful” a Leggi tutto
I whipped through this rather quickly. I'm an audible enthusiast and disappointed that I had to READ this, rather than have it chatting at me. We reviewed it at book club - and being a keen dog walker in LOERIE Park, Johannesburg was keen to learn more about park dynamics. Yes, indeed it endorses a
