The Farm

Until the moment he receives a frantic call from his father, Daniel believed his parents were headed into a peaceful, well-deserved retirement. They had sold their home and business in London and bid farewell to England, setting off to begin life anew on a remote, bucolic farm in rural Sweden.

But with that phone call, everything changes. Your mother’s not well, his father tells him. She’s been imagining things—terrible, terrible things. She has had a psychotic breakdown and been committed to a mental hospital.

Daniel prepares to rush to Sweden on the first available flight. Before he can board the plane, his father contacts him with even more frightening news: his mother has discharged herself from hospital, and he doesn’t know where she is.

Then his mother calls:

“I’m sure your father has spoken to you. Everything that man has told you is a lie. I’m not mad. I don’t need a doctor. I need the police. I’m about to board a flight to London. Meet me at Heathrow.”

Caught between his parents and unsure of who to believe or trust, Daniel becomes his mother’s unwilling judge and jury as she tells him an urgent tale of secrets, lies, a horrible crime, and a conspiracy that implicates his own father.

Really a sad story in the end, I wish I had known , may have avoided. Book moves a little slow at fist, monologues , then gets interesting at the end. Sad read

Like the author, dislike this read. Tedious, may have simply gone over my head.
