The Confession – Jessie Burton: Review & Recommend | ELLIE LOVES

I have previously received PR products (review copies of books) from Picador.

TW: miscarriage, abortion, post-partum depression, domestic violence.
CW: strong language, sex scenes, mention of suicidal mood.
No TWs or CWs are discussed in this review.
