For Claire Roth, an established psychotherapist with an adoring husband and children, her new patient - Jody Goodman, a witty and attractive young filmmaker - is a welcome diversion from her predictable life.
Jody, successful, yet uncertain, is disarmed by Claire's interest and approval.
Gradually, the boundaries between friendship and family, between love and compulsion, start to blur - especially when one of them starts to believe fanatically that some things simply cannot be coincidences, and that what they share, in fact, is the deepest bond of all.
In a Country of Mothers is a transfixing psychological thriller, and with it A.M.
Homes forces us to confront our own judgements about sanity, danger and desire.
