Lincoln is a good boy . At the age of four he is curious, clever and well behaved.  He does as his mum says and knows what the rules are. 

‘The rules are different today.  The rules are that we hide and do not let the man with the gun find us’

When an ordinary day at the zoo turns into a nightmare , Joan finds herself trapped with her beloved sonot.  She must summon all her strength, find unexpected courage and protect Lincoln at all costs- even if it means crossing the line between right and wrong; between humanity and animal instinct. 

It’s a line none of us would ever normally dream of crossing. 

But sometimes the rules are different. 

Firstly thank you to Alison at transworld for my copy to review. 

It was delivered with some toy animals which my son kindly gave a home to. Now my son is called Lincoln or lynx in our house so of course it was special to see the boy was called Lincoln in the book.

This is a book about motherhood and survival . 

What do you do when you have to make life saving decisions?  

Could you survive the awful situation  Joan finds herself in ?

What began as a pleasant day out turns into every mothers nightmare. 

You could feel her fear and tension whilst reading. 

The writer has captured the thoughts and feelings that Joan would have been having so expertly. 

A great thought provoking  read that even weeks after stays with you.

Full of tension and leaves you questioning what would you do in that situation?

Thank you for having me on the blog tour and go and check out the others!
