Cornelia (Leah) Blackwood, has life-changing injuries from a tragic event she’d rather forget. But when her husband is involved in a car crash, she is forced to deal with his darkest secret, knowing that her own actions and the reason why they are childless, is at the heart of his betrayal.

In Susan Elliot Wright’s most emotive novel to date, she deals sensitively and realistically with severe postpartum psychosis. She shines a light on this often misunderstood mental illness with courage and compassion. The final chapters are truly heart-breaking and will stay with me for a long time to come. Highly recommended.

This is my honest review in return for an advanced copy.

The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood by Susan Elliot Wright, is published by Simon & Schuster UK on 21 February 2019.
