Review

Gripping ... Sinéad's unique blend of storytelling and humour, mixed with a complex and deeply involving story, will leave you slightly gutted to reach the last page (Stellar)

Touching, warm, funny and emotional. She has the gift of telling a very emotive story with grace and empathy (Woman's Way)

Sinéad has written a breathtaking, rollercoaster ride of a book that will keep readers enthralled until the very last page (mummypages.co.uk)

Had me shocked and surprised all the way along ... a wonderful read ... I absolutely loved every page (Chloe’s Chick Lit Reviews)

As good as it gets in terms of chicklit polish and poise, humour and pain, pace and plot (Sunday Independent)

An enchanting story of love and loss and just how far you would go for the one you love (Handwrittengirl.com)

From the Back Cover

Sophie and Mandy, Anna and Laura - two daughters and two mothers and a story about the bond of motherly love.

Sophie is a happy 18-year-old living in London with Anna, her Irish mother. Anna has devoted her life to Sophie. It may be just the two of them - no father nor grandparents, no uncles nor aunts - but Anna has more than enough love to give. Sophie has everything she could ever need.

Laura is a not-so-happy artist. She too has a daughter, Mandy. But Laura is haunted by the loss of her first child, Jody. Happy-go-lucky as she is, Mandy lives in Jody's shadow and wonders why her mother can never let go.

Both mothers carry secrets in their hearts and cannot forget the day their paths crossed. But a chance discovery is about to bring everything into the open and mothers and daughters, love and lies, past and future, will spectacularly collide . . .

Praise for Sinéad Moriarty:

'Marian Keyes has for years been the undisputed queen ... Sinéad Moriarty is now a worthy competitor' Sunday Independent

'Moving, disarmingly honest and at times laugh-out-loud funny' Sunday Times

'Makes you really care ... plenty of laughs and more than a bit of substance' Irish Mail on Sunday
