Books - Review

The Children ActFiona is a highly regarded High Court judge working in the family division looking after the interests of children. Her life seems satisfying and stable, but she has to make a series of difficult judgements, culminating with the case of the young Jehovah's Witness who refuses a blood transfusion on religious grounds, and her private life goes a bit unhinged too, as her husband proposes he have an affair, and she begins to feel regrets she has never made time to have children of her own.
