    Description

    A Real Daughter is a horror novel that offers a frightening take on step-parenting and a disturbing testament to the unknown in all of us.

    When her infant daughter Sarah unexpectedly dies, Claire moves to Los Angeles and reinvents herself as a landscape gardener. There, Claire imagines Sarah alive, marking the child’s birthdays, Christmas, first day of school - almost as if Sarah never died.   

    Remarrying, Claire acquires a step-daughter about the same age Sarah would have been. But eight-year-old Mandy - part vamp, part jealous, and a troubled child - is nothing like Sarah, who still lives on in Claire's imagination.   

    As Claire lives two lives - one real, one imagined - the clash between the two daughters threatens to destroy her, releasing her demons and forcing her to choose between a new life and a haunted past.  

    Praise for A Real Daughter:

     “A morbidly eerie and artistically crafted psychological thriller” (Kirkus Reviews)  

    "A Real Daughter is the real thing: a compelling, psychologically astute inquiry into the seismic shifts of one, uneasily blending California family haunted by the past." (Cristina Garcia, National Book Award Finalist for Dreaming in Cuban)  

    "The writing is luscious and chilling. Expect to be afraid - and then horrified." (Mary Morrissy, Lannan Fiction Award winner)

    An excellent book beautifully performed

    Great writing, wonderful imagery, elaborate descriptive detail in every chapter, with excellent reading by Emily O'Brien whose voice captures every nuance of the little Mandy, of Claire, of Althea, and of Sarah. i greatly enjoyed listening to this book on Audible.
