The Farm Synopsis

If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son...Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retirement on a remote farm in Sweden, the country of his mother's birth. But with a single phone call, everything changes. Your mother...she's not well, his father tells him. She's been imagining things - terrible, terrible things. In fact, she has been committed to a mental hospital. Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Everything that man has told you is a lie. I'm not mad...I need the police...Meet me at Heathrow. Daniel is immediately caught between his parents - whom to believe, whom to trust? He becomes his mother's unwilling judge and jury. Presented with a horrific crime, a conspiracy that implicates his own father, Daniel must examine the evidence and decide for himself: who is telling the truth? And he has secrets of his own that for too long he has kept hidden..

The Good Book Guide Review

Daniel thought his parents had a comfortable existence on a Swedish farm, until he receives a distressed call from his father, to say his mother has been committed to a mental hospital, but has escaped. Then he receives a second call, this time from his mother, making her way to London and desperate for him to hear her side of the story. Is his mother the victim of a massive conspiracy as she claims? Or was his father right to commit her to an asylum?
