Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Harriet and David, against the trends of the 1960s, favour fidelity, love, family life and a permanent home. They marry and begin their lives together in an old Victorian house; children fill the home and life is idyllic. It is only when Harriet becomes pregnant for the fifth time that problems occur. After a difficult pregnancy and birth, the strange-looking child develops fast and grows bigger; he is unloving and disliked by his brothers and sisters. Inexorably, his alien presence wrecks the dream of their happy family. Harriet's fear grows as she struggles to love and care for this "changeling" child.
