What’s it about? What’s the plot?
The Push is a domestic/family thriller about a woman who is desperately trying to be a “good mother” and is struggling with it. Soon she comes to think that there may be something genuinely wrong with her daughter, but her husband insists that it’s all in her head.
From Deadline: “The Push is described as a “suspenseful, visceral novel, exploring how an unspeakable act can reverberate through generations.” The publisher adds that it “will ignite discussion around the expectations of motherhood that we’re taught not to question, such as the concept of nature vs nurture, and the notion of unconditional love.”
The Push was released in January 2021.
