The Unknown Bridesmaid by Margaret Forster

Find in textWow, I really felt the undertow of this book. The tension only let go a little too fast at the end, when the truly troubled main character does face up to the ghastly things she did as a child. How did this child grow to become a psychologist turned magistrate (who specializes in troubled or criminal children)? For those of us a little suspicious of the helping professions, this book pours gasoline on the fire. I was intrigued by her depiction of how an educated person can go in and out of awareness of her true self.
