The Fifth Child


Show Synopsis

Harriet and David Lovatt face a frightening dilemma: how to love a monstrosity they have brought into the world--hideous in appearance, insatiably hungry, abnormally strong and brutal. A horror story comparable to Rosemary's Baby by the internationally acclaimed author.

Family Turmoil

This was a book about society; its impact on a family; and how one difficult child can change the dynamics not only within the birth family, but the extended family as well. It was an excellent book, which I could hardly put down. It was a very personal book because it explored the feelings and thoughts of every character without lapsing into cliches. This is one of my favorite Lessing books!
