Born and raised in New Hampshire, Elisabeth Hyde briefly practiced law for the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. In 1982 she took time off to write her first novel, Her Native Colors, and never looked back. She has been awarded working scholarships to the Bread Loaf Writers Conference and teaches creative writing through artist-in-residence programs. The Abortionist's Daughter is her fourth novel. She now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
Nineteen-year-old Megan Thompson is beautiful, cool, clever and sexy - and has consequently never been short of boyfriends. She has a love-hate relationship with her mother, Diana Duprey, an abortion doctor and, following the death of her younger brother, has mostly steered clear of family life. That is until the day her defense attorney father calls to tell her that Diana has been found dead in their pool. Young detective Huck Berlin is assigned to the case when the suspicious circumstances of Diana's death emerge. She's a national figure who, by virtue of her career, has made many enemies. Yet when relationships past and present are revealed, they prove to be far more key to understanding exactly what happened to Diana, than anyone has expected. Set in a small town in Colorado, THE ABORTIONIST'S DAUGHTER is a novel about people and their relationships. Raw emotion, basic need and, ultimately, fear lead to an extraordinary catharsis for those whose lives have become so strangely entwined. 'A remarkably lucid and authoritative novelist' John Irving 'Like Anne Tyler, Hyde captures the quirky, heartbreaking core of a character and puts it on the page with shining prose' Publishers Weekly
Reviewed on Richard & Judy on 2nd August 2006.I dare you to try and finish this in anything less than one sitting. I enjoyed it so much that I kept sneaking away to read it when I should have been doing other things. Part murder mystery, part family drama, it'll keep you hooked until the last page.
