Excellent plot, I was gripped from start to finish. However, I was slightly distracted by the grammatical and punctuation errors that ran through it.

I gave up on this and packed it in at 27%. Too many mistakes, too little time, I'm afraid-one of those. A pity as the story was getting interesting but the errors throughout way too distracting for me. I did try sticking with it.
She spelled wont as want and babygros as babygrows THEN Adrian as Arian which was pretty terrible !! There were apostrophes missing as well, of course. Comes with the territory in any e-book, it seems. I'm pretty sure she probably meant Campbell's Electrics and not Cambe

Review of Mother be the Judge.

This story, about a single woman who has a child, a son. The mother is unattractive, and has no relatives or friends, gets pregnant on a trip to Greece. The child has a medical emergency that effects him his whole life. The story was easy reading, and no grammar, or punctuation was found (a cardinal sin in my eyes). The son grows up to be a sexual divient. Therefore, if you have an adverse reaction to the subject content you should probably not read the ebook. I tho

This is not the kind of book I would normally read, and only read it because it was free on Amazon at the time. However, it was a great book.
The subject matter was dealt with very sensitively too.
I got more and more frustrated with the Mother and wondered if she'd ever face up to things and in the interest of NO SPOLIERS I wont elaborate on that.

Great book, which I have recommended to others.

Easy to read enjoyable book. Liking the perspective being from the mother.
Jocosta is a lonely person with no history of being parented herself.
When she falls pregnant on a holiday to Greece, this results in a rather interesting parenting journey for her.
Although I felt sorry for her, I also started to feel irritated by her, especially after she left her job, hence 4 stars, not 5.

Mother Be The Judge : Sally O'Brien

Riveting!! Ms O'Brien really made me feel for everyone in the story. This book is for every Mother, we don't know how our children will turn out, no matter what we do for them, it's a difficult job as Jocasta soon learned.

Quite a strange story really and is more of a diary of events. It is not a police procedural as I expected so maybe that has soured my view.
Barbara Tsipouras
A very disturbing book about insane mother love and a wicked paedophilic monster of a son with great insight in both of their minds.

Really great book. Written from a different view point to most books I have read. Controversial topic, but handled well.
