Review: Defending Rebecca by A. K Bruinn
Defending Rebecca: a novella - A. K. Bruinn,M. John Harrison

Self-published (6th March 2017)


Source: Author


ISBN: 978-1520774275



This is the true story (with a little fiction thrown in) of how hiring a Finnish au pair as part of a reality show wreaked havovc on Emma's quiet family life in Vancouver. All she wanted was a little help with her kids...



The idea behind Defending Rebecca caught my attention as I love stories with some truth behind them, and the idea of an au pair and a film crew had endless possibilities for disaster! I really like Emma. She came across as such a warm and generous person. She seemed to have a genuine reason for wanting to take part in the programme in the first place, to have an au pair to help her with the children. She seemed to really want to like Rebecca too. She seemed to be pushed and pulled this way and that by all the people in her life and I felt a bit sorry for her.

Rebecca is an odd character. I really couldn't work her out, which I secretly like.

The children are brilliant characters, especially Ryland.

I like the way the story flows and the character interaction is great. It feels natural and the amount of observation is fantastic. This novella is funny in places, and at the end of the story I was left wanting to read more.

Methods in Observational Epidemiology - Whittemore Evans Kelsey,Whittemore Evans Kelsey This has to be one of the boring books in epidemiology having said that it has some of the best information. It is also not a book that can give you easy answers but if you take your time and work your way through it the information is the really helpful.
