The Hush by Sara Foster is an action-packed thriller right from the beginning.
Set in the near-future after COVID, the British government has issued sweeping mandates that slowly begin to look a lot like Big Brother, stripping people of their human rights. For some unknown and horrifying reason, an increasing number of otherwise healthy babies are born unresponsive. The government’s response to this crisis is to heavily monitor the health and whereabouts of its citizens via smartwatches. On top of all that, young pregnant women have started to go missing, sometimes with their entire families. When Lainey, a seventeen-year-old girl, suspects she is pregnant, her mother and grandmother do everything in their power to protect her.
Thoughts on The Hush by Sara Foster
This thriller is fast-paced and has one shocking revelation after another. It’s told from Lainey and Emma’s perspective.
There’s not much to critique with this one. It kept my attention, but it was a touch too quickly paced to what I normally read. Otherwise, I found this to be a gripping novel.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Expected Publication: 2 November 2021
