Hay personas en las que no se puede confiar.

Puede que tú seas una de ellas.

Para Ruth, una madre primeriza que está recuperándose de psicosis posparto, cada día es un reto. Lleva meses escuchando voces que salen de las paredes y sintiendo que no puede fiarse de nadie. Ni siquiera de sí misma.

Cuando una noche Ruth oye un grito proveniente de la gasolinera del barrio, asume que se trata de su mente jugándole una mala pasada. La policía ha sido tajante con ella: tiene que dejar de llamarlos. Y su marido, Giles, también está harto de que vea un peligro acechando en cada esquina.

Ruth sabe que es muy probable que el grito no fuera real, pero no puede olvidarse del asunto. ¿Y si no se lo ha imaginado? ¿Y si fue la única que lo oyó? ¿Y si alguien necesita ayuda?

How does the saying go? Just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you . . .

For Ruth, a new mother recovering from postpartum psychosis, every day is difficult and, after months spent hearing voices in the walls and trusting no one, she’s no longer confident in her own judgement. Neither, it seems, is anyone else.

So, when she hears a scream from the local petrol station one night, she initially decides it must be her mind playing tricks again. The police, too, are polite but firm: she must stop calling them every time she thinks she hears something. And her husband is frustrated: he’d hoped Ruth was getting better at last.

Ruth can’t quite let it go . . . What if there was a scream? What if it was someone in trouble? Someone who needs Ruth’s help?

Exploring the dark and isolating side of motherhood, the question at the heart of Rebecca Whitney's The Hidden Girls is how much you can help someone else when you can’t trust anyone – even yourself . . .
