The Hidden Child - Louise Fein
From the outside, Eleanor and Edward Hamilton are the epitome of a perfect marriage but they're harbouring a shameful secret that threatens to fracture their entire world.
London, 1929. Eleanor Hamilton is a dutiful mother, a caring sister and adoring wife to a celebrated war hero. Her husband, Edward, is a leading light in the Eugenics movement. The Hamiltons are on the social rise, and it looks as though their future is bright. When Mabel, their young daughter, begins to develop debilitating seizures, their world fractures as they have to face the uncomfortable truth - Mabel is an epileptic: one of the undesirables Edward campaigns against.
Forced to hide the truth so as not to jeopardise Edward's life work, the couple must confront the truth of their past - and the secrets that have been buried. Will Eleanor and Edward be able to fight for their family? Or will the truth destroy them?
