‘You wouldn’t hand your wallet to a stranger. Or your house keys. So why your little girl, the most precious thing you have?’
Teresa and her partner Craig need a helping hand – between Teresa’s demanding job and Craig’s working away, they’re struggling to juggle childcare for their bright little girls Jessica and Frances.
Enter retired next-door neighbour Angie. With her cosy home and gentle manner, Angie is every parent’s dream come true. And Angie loves looking after little children – it keeps her from revisiting those dark places she’d rather forget... well, usually.
But when something happens to Jessica, Teresa learns that trusting Angie may have been the biggest mistake of her life… but is it already too late?
What do we really know about the people who watch our children? Jessica’s Promise is a compelling domestic drama for fans of Jodi Picoult, Lisa Wingate and Kerry Fisher.
