Dragged*, for a second time, my grandma AND my mom to Barnes & Noble so I could look for the Newt Scamander Pop Vinyl, and of course, I didn’t find it, he’s all sold out, so I left with this book instead.
Which is basically a win.
Cradle and All by James Patterson
It doesn’t have very good reviews though, I must say. I did read through the premise and was reasonably hooked, so perhaps I’ll enjoy it more so than others.
I guess this book is based on an earlier book Patterson penned with reoccurring characters and scenes.
In Boston, a young woman finds herself pregnant—even though she is still a virgin. In Ireland, another young woman discovers she is in the same impossible condition. And in cities all around the world, medical authorities are overwhelmed by epidemics, droughts, famines, floods, and worse. It all feels like a sign that something awful is coming. Anne Fitzgerald, a former nun turned private investigator, is hired by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate the immaculate conceptions. Even as she comes to care about and trust the young women, she realizes that both are in great danger. Terrifying forces of light and darkness are gathering. Stepping into uncharted territory where the unknown is just the beginning, Anne must discover the truth—to save the young women, to save herself, and to protect the future of all mankind. Cradle and All probes our most deeply held fears and hopes in a sizzlingly fast-paced and chilling story. This is James Patterson’s most brilliant suspense novel ever, written with all the extraordinary drama and overwhelming emotion that have made him a #1 bestselling writer all over the world.
